Don't Leave Her Love Untended -- Poet Veritas

DON'T LEAVE HER LOVE UNTENDED

Do not leave the young lady's love untended

Her delicate flower needs water and sunshine and the touch of a skilled gardener

to bring out the luster in its fragile petals;

Be awe-struck with racing heart and shaky voice

but fear not that of being a fool

for the fool in his awkwardness is the greatest prover of love's truth

and should you be hypnotized by the subtle sway of beauty so bright that it stings your eyes

move toward the object of your fixation and fear and bow before its luscious innocence, 

to be blessed as a supplicant in the mystical sanctuary of profound preoccupation

and be purified in that moment of moments

when her lips part slightly in the shy but sly curve of a smile

and her eyes meet yours so briefly

and all that there is is all that she is;

be overwhelmed and carried to where the truth of what you feel leads you --

and should it draw you ever closer to her flame

remember to surrender to her budding love gently and profusely 

until you've successfully forgotten

where your spirit ends and hers begins

and give yourself up in fullness to her

and swear to her in that instant that you will never leave her love untended.

Civilization's End -- Poet Veritas

CIVILIZATION'S END

Who will be left to bear witness

at civilization's end?

Indolent masses, micro-focused on the minute-to-minute

knee-jerk stings of getting by,

looking at either their shoes or straight ahead,

failing to notice

the crumbling periphery and shuddering foundation

as the advancing army of black-shrouded attackers

devours the tenuous lights of civilization

as a cloud occludes the sun

and yields the way

for the rise of the blood-red crescent moon.

How's Billy? --- Poet Veritas

How's Billy?

How's Billy? Is he well?

Or have his plans been blown to hell?

The feds think he's in Cozumel --

so if he isn't, please don't tell

(at least not on the phone).

Deep Red Well -- Poet Veritas

Deep Red Well

How inopportune it is

that i can only draw my ecstatic pleasure from

the deep red well of your screaming, writhing pain;

and now that each piece of what you once were lies twisted and torn, ripped and raw,

strewn about the poverty-wracked apartment where once resided your random soul, 

i celebrate in the afterglow of my magnificent work,

and ready myself for a pleasant nap,

first carefully wiping the jagged blade on the sodden sunken couch,

before lying down in the mystic swelling dawn's first pink rays

creeping through the holes in the curtain

and making curious and fascinating animal shapes on the floor...
