Me-Time Continuum

I watch the clock ticking out its time.
I hear the gears tocking 'till the chime…
I hold my stare acutely
And focus ears astutely.
The whole gestalt of this assault by me on clock
Collapses in to hence become
A new me-time continuum,
This clock and I a vacuum;
Dial and me, we've come to be
A synergistic, fatalistic victim,
Hmm…

When it ticks, I then tock:
I am me as well as clock.
When it tocks, I then tick.
We burn together down the wick
In candle wax, both cold and warm,
Together now in molten form.
We jump the side but soon to stall,
Only to solidify
Until the active plateau
Chases…
Down…
Sinking…
To melt again the bit that ran (us) –
All in a time storm
With timeless plan.

Off-Chance Dream

I chanced a glimpse
And thro' the crowd I caught her eye;
A vision flamed in future stories:
Glorious nights, wedding vows,
Energetic children,
Growing old, together to part -
Rejoicing all we had before we bade our byes,
Drifting forth, a single melded soul...

A shove - the jolt had brought me to.
He warned me, 'Watch it mate! '
And even she had gone.

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time,
I lived a life sublime.
Known to others,
Sharing drinks;
We the brothers -
Really!

Now methinks
Upon the time that was...
It never happened -
No, sincerely no! -

Just a show,
A dream,
To boost esteem -
Apple pie and cream
To give a glow.

So once upon a time
There was a me -
Well, a brain
inside a skull
To ever mull
And ponder.

No wonder I was only
Once upon a time.

Pleasant Night

So here we go again, another drink –
My seventh pint and now I'm glowing pink.
I roll around and laugh at not sure what,
But find myself a cosy little spot
To slump and vomit – grinning all the while.
And hurling up my final ounce of bile,
I start to squawk and crow a sort of song -
Unaware of my repugnant pong.
The bouncer grabs my shoulders fair and square
And hauls me through the door without a care.
I've had my fill and now I'm in the street,
Sprawled along the gutter, when I meet
Another loser, just the same as me.
We nod and murmur, full of drunken glee.
And so I place my life upon the fringe
In yet another night out on the binge…
