New moon solar eclipse...

July 02, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

You sliver you

I want to control the stars

and not let them control me.

Gravitational forces...pshah

The tides have a mind of their own

especially when battered by the storm. 

That counterpoint sliver moon, over me

eclipsing the sun?

No way.

 

That silver moon is an illusion

dancing and prancing with that shit-eating grin one week

and a pregnant belly the next.

Still, there she is.

Is it that time of the month...

AGAIN

already?

You relentless now clock.

 

What the fuck does it mean anyway:

"life is an illusion?"

Give me a break...

spiritual parlor tricks I say.

I wash the dirt, and sweat, and blood off of my soul daily.

My body too.

So here we go...grabbing on to nothing again

Goddamn queens of denial.

Imagine THIS arrogant bitches:

bam, slice, crack, smack, coo, ah, yes, more, less,

trampling herd...

Silver sliver

Imagine, if I controlled the moon!

What then? 

I reckon I'd still be malcontent...

Wooden eyes...still seeing what they want.

"Listen up you Sun!"

Hmmm...

YES!

now THERE'S some truth!

 

No one gets out alone.

Not me, not you, them, they or those too.

No quarter

Not wry

No, no, no

Make no mistake!

What if this IS all i really know?

 

Then YES.

maybe that's the only way to go. 

And whether she controls me, or I her,

there's no way to know

really.

Maybe that's not the point 

in this sometimes reckless tugo' war,

this tango slam dance

this sometimes unwelcome penetration. 

I hold on...

to nothing...to something that fits like a glove...

Occasional grace

and sometimes

in the end

it's really hard

to know what to love.

Grab on to nothing
