Face Off

Face Off

Losing face...
exposed, I once again compose this weak flesh
into something impenetrable.
Hammering smooth the offending lines
the new patches held in place with rivets
as I construct my iron mask.
The thickness of my skin, eyes down,
mouth set just so...
hoodwinking and confident of the disguise
feeling somewhat kopasetic.

Exhausted

Exhausted

Perpetual and continuous
time is infinite and everlasting.
The logarithmic spiral uninterrupted
fractal chambers unfolding
boundless, persistent and unabating.
Slaves to the grind we feel it's passing
unremitting, ceaseless and incessant.
Time is measured and understood
but never tamed or controlled
tock following tick
there's never enough.

extending my hand
I invite heaven to dance
falling stars scatter

Steps

Steps

My soul desires a path to follow
one step at a time is all I know
vulnerable I fall and fumble
learning that forward means letting go.
