The Thin Red Line Between Audacity And Insanity -- Poet Veritas

The Thin Red Line Between Audacity And Insanity

I was born, and have lived my life,

straddling the thin red line between audacity and insanity;

though landing on either side could never be safe,

i simply don't know of another line to straddle.

NEGOTIATIONS - Poet Veritas

Negotiations

When the handshake fails you,

find the fist;

When your whispering fails you,

find the roar;

When you raise your glass in a toast,

and your counterpart curses his host,

break your glass on the table,

and use the jagged edge.

Watching The News -- Poet Veritas

WATCHING THE NEWS

watching the news on TV

wistfully wishing that the victim had been me -

i'm a prisoner of life

of decisions made and unmade

painfully passing time

until my time has passed.

An Uninvented Man -- Poet Veritas

AN UNINVENTED MAN


incipient nihilism

pulling apart and tearing away

(one stone at a time)

my unfounded foundation

a personality disorder of frightful perception

where there can be neither order nor anchor

as i struggle from minute to minute

crazily stalking meaning walking

in the shoes of an uninvented man

Thinking Again - - Poet Veritas

THINKING AGAIN

Thinking again about you and me

filling the void with what used to be

all of my nights and all of my days

how long must it take for my heart to be free?
