Darth Vader.
But every time he breathes,
You hear a harmonica.
Payton Feb 25
Rock n’ roll music, Folger’s, and paint-smeared hands.
Dresser drawers filled to the brim with undeveloped camera film.
Blue bonnets and overgrown grass, pecans and crunching fall leaves.
Dirt roads and river-rocks, typewriters, polaroid cameras, and feather-quill pens.
Those hand-me-down blue eyes and brown ones that are “sometimes hazel.”
Crystal clusters and Lord of the Rings.
Countless mosquito bites and play-pretend games in the clubhouse.
Early-birds and night-owls.
Trudy; and Randy Hayes.
“Don’t touch everything you see,” and “If you say you’re bored, I’ll find work for you to do.”
Sweet tea and okra and southern dishes blackened and drenched in cheese or gravy.
Grandma always burned everything to make sure it was fully cooked, and to her, it was never burned, just “well-done.”
Cigarettes and carpentry and cookbooks. Wild blackberries and birthday parties at the lake.
Sleeping in all day and staying up all night and procrastination.  
Shepherd's Pie, potatoes, and four-leaf clovers.
“Nil Desperandum. Never Despairing.”  
I’m from a whole house that eats eggs for breakfast, and I’m allergic to eggs.
And trees as tall as buildings and buildings as tall as trees.
“You should never take the lord’s name in vain,” and “Jesus loves you, so you should love others.”
Day-dreams and stargazing and thunderstorms.
“All or nothing,” and “There is no try, only do.”
Old family pictures in dust-glittered frames.
We are crystals. We have facets, each one makes us who we are.
With only one window of our lives to express, we’d merely be glass.
I am a part of each of these things just as much as they are each a part of me.
This poem was written in 2017.

Luke Skywalker is more disturbed that Darth Vader is his father than he is with the fact that he made out with his twin sister.

O to be prejudice between the visible
and invisible Baha'u'llah.
When moving out of nature becomes moving by the Will.
Therefore, divinity becomes a shuffling of
the attention away from all things, words, senses,
forms, and starts to receive instructions from
the personages that visit me.
She stared at me as if I was the sole
expression of her day,
tossed the blouse covering her beauty.
Her waist was perfect and made
mine perfect while sitting.
She caught sight of Baha'u'llah,
and her spirit dispersed.
Angels of Prophets parted ways,
by means of Names.
He unfolds a general saying
to tell me of His hidden power.
That woman, Rey, of the Force
looks at me with tears in her eyes.
Baha'u'llah always leaves me
to have no sign or description
of the divine.
He came and left, and though seen and felt, left no remaining
evidence
of His
Self.
With mainly blôod sweat
and.,  tears
I thought I had already painted the
picture., clear
When I tell you that writing's my
Son?
It's as if I had an Ink-ling
Known to be a part of me but not
the
com-plete thing
You see it's like a pen made of flames at my finger-tips
For my words are my bond as I reach for the stratos-phere
Therefore
I gets no residuals for smearing
with lies and fear
Like some of my., peers
Sorry, no finger painting or
point-ing here
Oh Yeah,
And can I hear
The snickering from all of these bickering fools
As their.,  conceptual focus is in the
( Rear )
But I can't even see it from that point
of ( View ) tho
For only the front of me is in my
( Mirror )
For the sky is the limit as I'm passing
the ceiling too
Raising the banner and the skillz
of my optic-roof
Like a., cryptic-loop
The real., Skywalker is here
and he's now
Forcing through
Just like
If you had really looked
at my last 2 submitted
Clues
How could you not tell that
if or if not
I was quoting
Luke?

-Skywalker

Ageless little creature commanding the world with your tiny hands
Big eyes, big heart - saving the galaxy as the universe demands
Watched the Mandalorian and inspired by  the sweet little bobble head on my desk
Silly Stormtrooper;
You wish you could shoot the things —
but really, you can't.
