A green man worms through wooden leaves,

Jul 5, 2015

A small speck in a spectacular church.
I seek some smaller, simpler works.
A green man worms through wooden leaves,
struggling for freedom from nature.

Blank eyes return my straining stare.
Sharp sculptings scratch my cautious touch.
Brooding, symbolic soul,
nightmare archetype,
stalker of the psyche.

Nature greedily grips the green man,
growing through gaping eyes and nose,
reaching for modern eco-man,
who disputes to his final throes.

A man on earth is judged by the stars.

Sometimes I wonder
If shooting stars
Are the santas to our wishes
Or just punishment to men.

Shooting stars,so seldom, so rare,
Are believed to be the core of our prayers.
However, whenever a star passes by,
A man on earth is judged by the stars.

Not every man with a heart,
Is understanding,
Not every man with ears,
Is a listener,
Not every man with eyes,
Is able to see.

For it takes,
Love and faith,
To be,
A Man.

God created man
Man created Greed

does it bother that
most of ours efforts now go
to the entertainment of man
not the betterment of man

go ask apple
"What on earth have you done my Dear Man", he cried, and
Kypros Koutsokoumnis

"What on earth have you done my Dear Man", he cried, and          

lugubriously he cried it again, his arms up,                                

ferociously flailing like a mad man, howling,                        

for he missed the sound of the wild wolfing shout.

Hollow man,
Weak man,
Stupid man made of flesh and doubt,
Silly man, don't do that,

Hollow man,
Home man,
Choke man with rope around neck,
Finally man, please get down,

Hollow man,
Hollow man,
Come close quick,
Hey man, you hollow man,
Feel the pain again!

He is an
erroneous man
with a soul splotched
in every color
whose death
displays
his ultimate
moral
perfection.

Now, a man in Oodnadatta
He grew fat, and he grew fatter,

Now, a man in Oodnadatta
He grew fat, and he grew fatter,
