  9633.     

now do you see why i live?

i am not a magnet
i am just your plain mocking bird
and i do not like to attract people

i am not strange
but i know how to be one
just for the
heck of it

Dum
Dum
Dum

i like to beat the drum!

  9634.     

now going back to a little seriousness about life

i have give you a list of games
a to z, back to z then a, and you gape at me
unable to believe,
finding it so hard to believe that in the middle of the city
during a blackout i can be
another black dog with eyes gleaming like
a pen light roaming around
a black canvass inside the movie house
where each hungry city dweller is looking for
something to hold
to eat and puke.

now going back to where we once were,
we never made us
they made us to do things that we do not really do
the way we did it,
we are constrained to escape from the doorsteps
of restraint,
and be free birds, white
in visions, twittering on sky blue skies

now going back to what we are....
where are we really?

i am serious. Are we not lost?
in the middle of this darkness where we think we are no longer stars

  9635.     

now i know why it must rain sometimes

there is no significance at first
when age is a little boy, the moon is the moon
nothing else, the wind is like anybody's wind
mother's breaths, like a pillow,
such a small world, of less significance
are the little things, unaccounted
laughters are laughters, sighs are sighs,

but today, the metaphors keep hovering
over my hair, like some flowers in my dreams
turning into butterflies, somehow,
the window becomes a framework of
my future, the door an opportunity
that i, as a pair of hands, must either close
or open,

this is it, every word is accounted and saved
and then something grows,
seeds are words now, and the flowers my deeds.

it rains sometimes, a cry for an unburdening.
sleep is again cruel to me.

  9636.     

now i must recall

now i must recall
because i am no longer afraid of my own shadow

it was about the door
that was not locked and without knocking
you opened it

there were no black clouds
only the white sheen of light coming from my body
i was naked and you saw it
it may not have been so good to you
not as beautiful as you perceived me
when i was fully clothed
by the sun

it was a shame you said once
i wanted to forget that and bury it like dung
you never spoke a word
but i know that you have seen it

it was my fault
but now i think i should not be ashamed
about some slips of my flesh
squirting bubbles into the air of our prisons
fluids rushing like unexpected rain

one dark night
the moon bleeds a dim light

it was as though i were the finch perched on a lonely branch
when all the leaves have fallen

bluntly, i must tell you
if you must remember
now that i have the courage to hold my own hips
it was not a shame
because it was the truth about my being

did we not tell ourselves
that one thing about the truth is that it is beautiful?
