Whatever I'd say
you won't listen, you nut.
You do the opposite
of what you are asked.

Like with child discourse with you:
tell a boy not to touch
chocolate, he will eat all.
Allow it - won't be fussed.

If I urge you to not to
press the button, you will.
So I'm urging to do it!
(to stop you from doing it).

The fingerprints of children,
Imprinted on the glass.
Long grown into adults,
Being forced to march and grind away.
The youth that was once so easily seen,
Now faded in a darkened dream.
Age now all they know.
'All we know
All the universe has ever known.

north
find me where I'm most alone
before my fleeting feelings
turn to stone

east
don't let me turn the other way
if you ever think I'm slipping
hold my gaze and make me stay

west
hold the coffee to my nose
the warmth smells like home
and keeps me close

south
don't you ever say you're sorry
for taking care of me
for helping to melt away
the ice I was meant to be

be my compass
guide me for our sake
for you're already the direction
I want my life to take

And until I find my North Star, I am but a traveler fumbling here and there, forever wandering aimlessly...

Orcas hunting on
a North Dakota sky
swooping up bison
SWISHING Aurora
Aurora
her name thru
your ear
whispers
in the doorway
on a ledge
in the Lodge
hollow
hallow
Orca calls sleek
Lakota sings her people
wind flushes
gushes
we all long
for Aurora
holy
ocean spooking
bison into violent
quiet
slumber
Aurora
Orca
Lakota
Dakota
ghost of
Sitting Bull
sweetening
a haunting breathe
lullaby
Aurora
Aurora
curve me
in the sand
Orcas beached
bison drowning in
the great river
Aurora
Aurora
build for us
a vessel
to carry
our warriors
of light, orcas
of sagebrush flame
Aurora
Aurora
take us there
and call me
sometime on the
telephone.

Her construction of mime
lest she tether me elementary
whence she visit then
a darling of mine where
she quickly abide my character
tonight does this key intervene
with the savory wind again.

If the blindingly cold winters of the north, could say just one thing to her in part.
It would be that she, a southern belle, knew not of the warmth of this gentleman's heart.

Short sweet and to the point. Written on the road with headphones. Safety first.

Do you remember when we made
love in the park? All eyes content,
our positions blushed in pure pinks.

All watching with delight, nature
spoke to everyone as you fucked
me. Like wind dances with grass.

Is it the same when you taste her
cherry wine? Do you peer into
unique souls of one another?

I am Outlaw!
         -call me Pirate!
I live such freedom,
         all souls admire it!
The awful God,
        has judged my soul,
Weighs his measure,
          I'll pay my toll!

The sailor's way,
        path unknown,
Stars are clouded,
        nothing shown?
The sea's are high,
        a storm is here,
Davey Jones' Locker,
        my home is near.

There is no heaven,
        there is no hell,
Life on seas,
        the seas they swell,
Fish scales on arms,
         scales on my legs,
Heart born free,
         dread-locked and dregs!

I am Outlaw!
          -call me Pirate!
Lost lives redeemed,
          some should admire it,
The ship upended,
          all hands to drown,
In Davey Jones' Locker,
          a peaceful sound...

The sailor's way,
        path unknown,
Stars are clouded,
        nothing shown?
My time has ended,
        fate is near,
Davey Jones' Locker,
        my death is here.

I am Outlaw!
         -call me Pirate!
A man of valor,
          some do admire it.

I am Outlaw!
          -call me Pirate!
A dreadful life,
           though some desire it.

I am Outlaw!
          -call me Pirate!
To Davey Jones' Locker,
          my deeds require it.

I am Outlaw!
          -call me Pirate!

I AM OUTLAW!
          -CALL ME PIRATE!

I am Outlaw!!
          -call me Pirate!
My life on the oceans,
          my God inside it.
