Glass Table:

Breathy Voice

Thinking along a random thought
something undefined, became a’wrought

Trying to recall an inner song
words became a writhing throng

Clamorous ringing in my brain
can’t decipher a single refrain

Soul song raging to be let free
innermost urges within the depths of me

Slithering along the corridors so dark
waiting for the hope of a spark

Spilling out from fingertips
breathy voice from my full lips

Rest Assured

Low brow on a high bridge
Eating crow in a sandwich
Sings My Way or the hiway
When I jump to conclusion
Indeed it’s the end



Answers are hybrid
When questions are turbid
When energy goes torpid
And entropy turns rancid
Bad habits turn rabid, but
Deeds do wind ’em up rapid


5-7-5 x 3

indica for dreams
deed of land a hybrid crop
sativa for thought
deeded a lifetime
curiosity’s diet
feeds hybrids to be
earth fire water air
epic deeds ancient heroes
hybrid elements
