I THOUGHT YOU WERE POSSESSED

By the name of the
Witch Sisters &
Brown acid

And the colors of the
Forty five Amulets &
Abalone Scarabs

By the sound of 
Anubis' Unblinking Eyes,

I command ye, feeble
Demon of White-
on-White Collar
Crimes and Bathroom
Groping

BE GONE!
BE NOTHING
AS WE ARE!

AWAY FOREVER


I COMMAND THEE
TO STOP READING

LEWIS, CLARK and ME

I've been so gone from my Center
But I've had my eye out and
I brought a machete,
I will hack a new path,
The right one for me

On my way, I'll learn
Many things, some
Exciting, some
Frightening
But I will be looking
Forward to seeing
In all directions 
Yet again

And When I Can,
I will have You Two in
Our Home with a New Me
Or at least be there
By myself,
As the Self 
I was born 
To be

DEFENESTRATION

Maybe if had I derailed my thought process
I could elevate to a misplaced next-best

That train is off the tracks,
Thrown from a window
Thrown from my life

Tossed just far enough
To see I'm better off
Without a a single
Mile of that 
Nothing-of-a-stretch
Laid into my ground

RELIGHT

You once carried a flame but
Since then you've let
It fade out,

Meant no harm in it. 
Fell off deep with it.
Gone off fast with it, but
Now I must be done with it.

You once carried my torch but
Since then you've let
It burn out,

Assumption.
Common place.
Palace guards.
Rusted face.

Let it swirl, let it swirl,

Relight.

You once carried a fire...
