The Old Man In The Chair
by Leo Warne

That old man in the chair
with the still, spotted hands
hunched over on his porch
and gazing into nowhere.
His youth has ran,
on the ground he lands.
No one seems to care,
and onto them, his dead eyes stare.

We were running and we were safe,
We were high but well behaved
Positive souls by all that mean,
Driving cool in a fast machine
Then something happened,
We blacked out
We stuck in the dark,
Could not shout
It's the car wrack,
That we couldn't move

A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man
by James Joyce

Are you not weary of ardent ways,
Lure of the fallen seraphim?
Tell no more of enchanted days.

Your eyes have set man's heart ablaze
And you have had your will of him.
Are you not weary of ardent ways?

Above the flame the smoke of praise
Goes up from ocean rim to rim.

Youth and Age
by Arthur Guiterman

Bersi, the champion, famed in his day,
Agèd and bedridden, drowsily lay.
Halldor, the baby, the grandfather's pride,
Cooed in his cradle the pallet beside.
Recklessly rocking, the cradle fell o'er;
Halldor, the baby, was cast on the floor!
Strengthless to succor his torment and joy,
Bersi, the champion, sang to the boy:
'Lorn, by the fireside helpless we lie,
Grandchild and grandfather, Halldor and I.

They brought me into
a broken world.
They told me to make
a better place.
But before I became
an adult,
they blamed me
for their broken world.
And they blamed me
for being broken.

Today, I am
by Aras Acolipeps

Today, I am unable.
I’m incapable and unstable,
and if you thought I was ready,
well, give up already!

Today, I am small.
So I’m putting up a tall wall,
you’ll never get to me,
I won’t let you see.

Tracing Crumbs

Bolts across spine, down arms

Shocks wrists

Tingles palms

Tickles upon my neck, shivers my thighs

Amalfi Coast
by bella harrison

I had dreams of a life
not long ago,
angels meet beyond our horizon,
in this heavenly nothing where everything glows; we knew,
we know.
Lucid, morose, palm trees,
no way home. Don't go,
let go, get low, won't stand too close
Unclean, more fiend, I am
your dose,

While skyline is dozing red in Sevilla
by Lampetti -

Somethin’ very good ‘s happen’

while Azure Cantilena

gingles on my mind – self-curving latitudes

of spritzful euphoria.

Chili in tiny bowls – and then chill out – The Sunset
