What happened to the beautiful boisterous screaming queens of the 80's full of Gloria Gaynor dancing on bars & pianos & teasing & strutting & grabbing life by the *****?
Every time I go to the Op Shop & see a pair of size 11 patent leather red pumps I think of you & put them on & walk around the shop just to remind me of the fabulous times.
Are you making lounges in the shape of Cadillacs or corsets or sculpting **** - tail glasses delicately gold leafed - centre table?
Back up x 30 in the Botanical Gardens at Mardi Gras & remember the good times, the sad times, the Carmen Miranda, feather boer, wig, **** & lipstick times my friends........

consultation & exchange
a caress in the fray of animated hands and eyes
and breath

conversational sensibility
withdraw with gentle salutation
don't look back
or you won't leave

Just Let It Go, They Said

I sit with my legs crossed &
All I want to do is
Open them.
I don't think you could handle the
I can see you
Dribbling, so
I tuck my skirt into my knickers
Only on one side
And sache to the bathroom

As I sit
I ponder
*** to the conclusion that,
It's all in the perspective

He took the journal out that he doesn't have
He read the words that were not on the page
Out loud

I could smell the paper that wasn't there

He felt the wood on his fingertips
The binding that was old and frayed

I tasted life in my mouth like blood

Serenity crept in

I started to laugh

With a glint his eye
He stared intensely at the nothing

at everything

You are the oracle
It's all right
The uncommon thought
Hallucinations chime
Detonate like a bell
A low slung gong
There is a distinct difference in the stance of the bourgeois
And you
It's exceptional
It is your faith that drinks in creation itself
It determines your mood on occasion
Truth is a flood
An undeniable perception of things in the mirror
Be overwhelmed by your objective mood and laugh
Accept the deluge

I realise that my delusions are far more pleasurable than my reality.
So I'm going to hang on to my delusions
And live them every single day.

I'm sweating your ******* out of my skin and I'm soaking in it

Above and beyond the call of duty
You're shoving it down my throat and I can't

constantly questioning

Fuck The Clarity
Debra in Silence Dec 2017
I grin as I look into the new year
A new state of mind and heart
There is no ****** clarity anywhere to be seen
No expectations and no lined up jars
I smell earth on the breeze
There's a hum
A beautiful vibration in the dirt beneath my feet

The Windsong In The Tree
Debra in Silence Jun 2020
violins play in the wind in the trees
and the bats sing while eating oranges
i lay still and listen

and cold
but i won't move because if i do
i have to wake up
eyes closed

i need confirmation
i thought i had an appointment tomorrow
i didn't get a txt to confirm
Debra in Silence Dec 2017
You hold me in the palm of your hand
I try to leap out of it but that leaves me suspended in mid air
You climb inside my head & start eating it from the inside out
I'm like a rabbit in a warren
Running from one place to the next
Banging in to walls of dirt & dust
There is no light down here & it's hard to breathe

You play with your hair and scissor your fingers and dance on your toes and get a kick out of watching me squirm

All I can hear is the wind in the trees now but everything seems so still and silent
It's hot
But my heart feels ice cold
I haven't eaten for three years so I'm hungry and I'm tired even though all I do is sleep

You bounce

Listen ..... ..... .....

That is the guttural scream from my soul
My arms are outstretched reaching for freedom

The Mighty Dollar
Debra in Silence May 2019
If you take my money I want it back
I won't ask for it but if you turn up with a bit of paper for me, without me asking
I'm going to respect that
It's easy to forget the $$$ when it isn't yours
I do love that look of surprise when the money is given back like
I forgot
What a laugh

The Catch Of The Day

I stood in the wind and I could smell myself
I liked it
It was heady
I caught myself on the wind and it was good
I turned and walked away and was sad that it was only me that caught it

i can't believe the perjury that's going down
i'm in Gotham City and the bad guy's got us all locked up
he's in the sky with all of our kids

chained up
and he's smiling smugly as he hugs them
he's removing the innocence
removing the freedom

Run to the dawn, run run, the sun rises over the pain and the head within your head within your head, stretching, bending making no sense but it's real.
Run to the end of day, body over there, mind in the palm of your hands and looking at it so - strange.

There it is.
Look at my face.
Do you want a second helping?
For the most part - it's different.
The satisfaction of the culture group.
Grandiose feelings of the forbearer.
Gigantic forces distinguish our lives regulating a mutual - agreement.
Doesn't it.

Debra in Silence Jun 2019
I see comfort in my work because it's easier there
I'm not starving anymore
I ate the cake
I rub my thumbs together and stare at them, wondering
The universe is asking me WHAT DO YOU WANT?
I don't know!
But if it's good, I'll take it.
I'm confused
In the void
There is a transition happening
I'm caught in the middle of a muddle bug
I speak Latin don't you know
Oh My God!
Your knees are bleeding

steel grey cloud
luminous silvered trim

sunrise touching fingers stretched
twist & twitch

Lost in the Labrynth
Debra in Silence Dec 2017
I'm a simple woman
There is no complexity
I sat opposite her and
She turned her back
It took me a while to process that
I wonder if she knows happiness
Her dress was emerald green and ruby red
I drank another glass of wine
Intellect is intimidating
Until you drink that last glass of wine
You get lost in the hallway
I sat opposite my nemesis
She gave me what I wanted

scouring through words
it's all in my reality with no words in an index or list

i'm not sure if the words i'm looking for ......

Debra in Silence Jan 2019
Everyone can ignore, smile & laugh as much as they want
The truth is harsh
If we ALL stood up for justice
We would win
What is it that terrifies people enough to make themselves suffer
I stand alone in the constant conversation of truth
I stand alone in
And I WILL raise my voice!

I know where I am standing
