The emptiness a reminder
of what once, was there
not really ever gone
just another, empty chair

In the wake is left a grey
and hollow space
with hopes to share again
another time and place

No way to fill the void
without a single trace
the places we avoid
trying, to save grace

When grace is what we hope to find
and on becoming disillusioned
the choice to leave it all behind
sometimes seems the only solution

Holding up the memories
those no longer at our side
it's not that they aren't with us
ghostly mirroring, our strides

The spirit's essence lingers on
no longer here, yet never gone
as is the sunrise to the dawn
an eternal tune, a never-ending song

Though we grieve that they should leave our presence far too soon
our memories hold melodies of their poetic tune
so remember, the loss and pain, gleaned upon the road
it's but a simple reminder, of the poet's code

Winn's inspiration from her Poem "grey² II"
All the good lines, are hers ;)

Well, I guess that'll show us
getting just what we deserve
A presidential childlike wonder
nothing held back, in reserve
When in inauguration
you can bet your two red cents
America has collected
on a promised, Trump-up-Pence

I'm wondering if the whole "solidarity" thing is gonna work.
A word play with "come-up-pence:" :D

You'll never see certain things in the news
Wonder Woman, coming, totally unglued
Superman, tripping on his cloak
Green Lantern, while lighting up a smoke
Ironman, paying out, his Avenger dues
The Hulk wearing spandex, and tiny ballet shoes
Captain America, his shield, being broke
Batman caught, telling a good joke
Wolverine passing gas, asking to excuse
Storm in the bathroom, blushing, as she poos

Storm, get it? Storm in the bathroom! *snicker*
Yes, my inner three year old shines through! :D

It has an edge unparalleled, it's accuracy is keen
the implement is unexcelled, all lines and curves are clean

No markings mar the hilt or blade, no runes upon it's length
by Godly hands this tool is made, it yields a Godly strength

Of masters, few may claim it, of betters, there are none
ware the hand this tool will fit, beware the things it's done

The pen/quill has killed and saved more lives than any sword ever did, or will.

Temporal Fugue
(Skull with clock eyes)
The darkness is a metaphor, for all we cannot see or know
like a foreboding open door, causing fear to grow

(Suited up stick figure)
When the Poet becomes one with both mind and heart
Such fear shall be reflective within Ones art

Temporal Fugue
Gazing deep into the night, dark abyss, or devil's crack
knowing when to fight, and when to turn your back

It is cold here and my words are merely steam
Turning in to droplets of less than they mean

Temporal Fugue
Ice gathers where it will, it denies all define
a sundering of stone, or vertebrae in spine

Reluctantly we push that stone up an eternal hill of misplaced wells, only to tumble

Temporal Fugue
Picking up all the pieces, assembling it, like new
casting many pennies in, withdrawing, but a few

A collaboration with Traveler

Crazy is as crazy does, that doesn't apply to me
I work in vivid's, reds, purples, yellows, it's just my artistry

My mind is my playground, it recreates past history
accessing the irony of images, not a silent plea

Hero's by any name, are fools, explicitly
doing what they do, and doing it for free

A short taking from a quote the Joker made in a movie.
"If you are good at something, never do it for free"

Batman in his belfry
Robin at the all you can eat buffet
Batgirl in my bedroom
things going, all my way

Riddler plying his prose
Gordon on patrol
Catwoman in my trousers
happily, loosing all control

Joker playing the saboteur
Penguin relaxing at the shore
Harley-quinn in my shower
as golly gee and will-a-curs
I can't ask for nothing more

What if

we don't follow orders
what if, we ignore the Pope
what if, there is no punishment
delivered, at the bottom of a rope

What if

we decide not to hurt and kill
what if, we all live in peace
what if, there is real justice
rehabing, criminals and thiefs

What if

we propose a human treaty
what if, it's put up to a vote
what if, it passes referendum
government, no longer bloats and gloats

What if

we treat each other gently
what if, kind words are thoughts are said
what if, you and I my friend
abandon war, embracing love, instead

Is it just me, or does it seem we are racing down the slopes of Armageddon on a run-a-way tobagin to hell? :(

Whoa! I lost it!
Did you see where it went?
Is it on the table, maybe in the tent?

It's not like it's RNA
Or simple stomach acid
It's not easily subdued, by using an antacid

Dropping cells everyday
In every way and place
Depositing myself, in the human race

Fear not that you may be collected
And your DNA then filed
Used for experiments, unsanctioned and so vile

DOH! Fingernails, boogers, skin, hair, poo, etc etc etc.......
Somewhere in Mississippi, is a guy with a DNA sequencer making a giant human alligator hybrid Ewwww. (you know it's true:D)

As the ink flows, to paper, from pen
manipulating power, knowing where, and when

Swords and greater weapons, never entering the duel
implements of dictators, tyrants, presidents, and fools

Give me this day my words and will, to pour upon the page
not in halls of gallantry, but in hopes, that wars will not be waged

Flurries of enlightenment, following
blizzards without dreams

Sprinklings of epiphanies, accompanied by
deluges of rambling screams

Gentle winds of understanding, conjoined
sand storms of despair

Clear ponds of insight, in the wake
tsunamis of nightmares

No clear or concise light
not without the glare

Thoughts snatched from eyes of hurricanes
not common, but so rare

Does it ever seem like, screaming underwater?

She didn't tell me, her proclivity of wet
We did on the counters, and on the TV set

We did it in the bathroom, we did it on the bed
We did it everywhere, I have, and haven't said

The stains of all our unions, cleaned and so removed
Cept the one upon the carpet, renovation, now, approved

The clock eyed skull cannot see
marking till it's time of death
A wandering both wild and free
like imbibing, too much meth

An avatar by any name
is still just a mask to hide
who and what lies beneath
that will never coincide

Always in the background
hopes and fears for humanity
disappearing without a sound

I chose this avatar, because, when I searched for images of "Temporal Fugue" this one struck me as most apropos.
There is no greater movement in time, than splitting, or fusing an atom.:D

Rip out your heart, place it on the page
Tear out your soul, words, thoughts, and lines of rage

Cry tears of love, of passion, and of pain and hurt
Eyewitness to mortality, never, to subvert

Thrash out the meaning, of everything you can
Praise, ridicule, sarcasm, just tools, held within a hand

What there is of humanity, will ever be inscribed
Torture a libation, all poets have imbibed

Nothing like, a cat soiree
Dancing cats, it's their forte'
If you're ever in thoughtful doubt
Need to smile, but can only pout
Find the cats, at their hangout
As they sing and dance about
Doing jigs and Rumba ques
Square dancing, a happy view
Tapping out to follow thru
Catty moves, line dancing too
Here Merengue, there is jive
Frolicking free, fully alive
No better joy, of feline scenes
Kittens cavort, like dancing fiends

Another dusted off oldy fresh from the vaults, reworded and extended, resplendently amended:D

It was a place, I used to hang my art
now a poetic graveyard, devoid of better parts

Friends, collaborators, and people that I knew
all that's left are reminders,  a place I passed on through

Hours, days, and months, spent typing like a fool
architecting prose and rhyme, utilizing every tool

Crafting and collecting, arranging words sublime
the site, now covered, drown, in vitriolic slime

Becoming witness too, such complete technological idiocy
lack of competent management, absence, of rote security

Trolls by any name, of many names they used
all of them may have been only one, ultimately abused

Rest in peace, and know the torch, not fallen free
caught by hands, more poetic, than mine will ever be

Her light can been seen
eternally, both near and far
free spirit, snow white queen
proudly bearing all her scars

Her words a salve and bandage
binding wounds and pain
never putting out as salvage
love and caring, her refrain

She doesn't have to say it
it's bound in every word of prose
heart as pure as any true commit
platinum is the angel, behind the purist rose

LRF, it just fits.
Sometimes it's just relaxing to describe something already known :D

I'm writing about nothing
something I own in spades
heartily huffing and puffing
just another, of my tirades

Nothing much
nothing more
nothing to acquiesce
or deny

Raging at the machine
something, I had to try

Folly ruling my neurons
as they vie to electrify
my departed creativity
leaving me, to die

Dang it!
all dried up!

Daddy, what are trees?
Something you, can no longer see
Daddy, Daddy what are clouds?
Another thing, not now allowed
Daddy, why do we eat sand?
Because, young one, we betrayed the land
Daddy, daddy, tell me why
Did nature really have to die?
She died for us, my little dove
We twisted trust, and gave, no love

Although, if ya listen to the pundits, we are moving into another ice age, or not. Depends on the pundit.

Clowning around, real near the woods
clowns on the prowl, in your neighborhood
Creepy and crazy, done up in their masks
sneaking around, clowny type tasks
Children avoid them, and do as I say
clowned princes of doom, will take you away
They don't want your presents, or birthday cake
roaming around, with mischief to make
Threats called into the local school board
film posted to YouTube, hits to be scored
Making the news, for being absurd
mental the problems, seen, and not heard
