Poems

Poems don’t need to rhyme, but write about what you know.

Rocket

I am about to embark
on another extended fast
and who knows how I will be
when it finally ends in December

Letting myself stop eating food is pretty easy,
it’s looking down the steep side of a cliff
that can be difficult and unnerving,
but my resolve is unswerving like usual,
I just don’t know which way the wind will blow
because it always blows like there’s always a fire,
but nobody ever knows the exact direction it will go

The Cranky Homeless Man

“I am up now,
but I might go back to sleep
right here on the God damned concrete,”
says the filthy homeless man that doesn’t give a fuck

“Try to stop me! Do you got a jail cell?
Stick me in it and I’ll finally have a roof over my head,”
says the filthy homeless man that lost hope a very long time ago

“I may sit here all day,
and piss myself instead of using a restroom,
I may shit myself too if I don’t feel like walking there again
and there’s nothing that you or anybody else can ever do about it,”
says the filthy homeless man that hates pretty much everybody these days

“I don’t care who’s downwind,
I am smoking a cigarette again and I might smoke two
because they taste good and wake me up and I just don’t give a fuck!”

A Taste of Soul

The green hit always tastes the best
and sometimes it tastes like a golf course
and other times it tastes like breakfast cereal

Inhaling green air deeply and exhaling all of it,
hitting it hard and deep with a water pipe
because there’s no pussyfooting it
when it’s time for blastoff!

People downwind that know buds
know that this green smells like a forest
and it’s not brown, earthy or nutty smelling

The Moonset

The reddish toenail moon
descended toward the sea
just like the sun always does,
but it was black as night outside
except for the moon’s warm reflection

It was like seeing the anti-sunset,
doing it backwards and differently
with its own uniqueness and beauty

Pictures couldn’t fully capture it
without using the very best camera,
but when the sliver moon was obscured
by low clouds that engulfed its jagged shape
its glow was surreal as it slowly sunk into the sea

Shifting Into Gear Again

Being back in the neighborhood of my adopted home
feels great because it is beautiful, sunny and warm

Walking and riding my bike
from one place to the next
is my deal and tomorrow
I start my next phase

Who knows what will happen on election Tuesday,
but on Monday I’ll be disciplined and set a course for greatness

A wise man said always put myself
in the best position to win and
that’s what I’ve been doing
with more and more precision and accuracy,
acquiring strength, power and energy on the way

Queens

I see you and
you look amazing
with a model ass and
you have the best one here

Does your dude know that
you are flirting with me?
I see you bending over
behind his back and
he’s only feet away

This may be a dumb question,
but is he your brother or boyfriend?

Mad respect for you and your discipline
because you’ve inspired and stimulated me,
piquing my interest in you and your tight body

Every Day

Why don’t others see what I see?
Why don’t they do what I do?

With so much to see and so much to feel,
am I lucky because I saw two monk seals?

Am I that unique? If so, why?
Is it because they don’t try
or is their heart elsewhere?

Drastic changes over time have molded me
and now I am way different than I used to be
and I see things that I could never see before

It’s exciting and I am free,
but it feels like hard work
because it’s never easy

Oh Poipu

I am flat on my back looking up
and no longer laying down prostrate
as the wind blows long palms above me

Puffy white clouds slowly move across the sky
as a yellow, fixed-wing, propeller plane buzzes by
and a sun shower soaks me and gets everybody wet

Walking down the sandy strip of beach was nostalgic
and I didn’t even steal another golf cart for a joyride

The sand was squishy
and tourists were everywhere
along with a couple of radical asses

I am still trying to decide
how to win on my own terms,
getting closer to something big,
but I have visions and nightmares
and right now my heart feels heavy
with some serious concerns and cares

What do I do and what do I live for?
How far can I move the hands of fate
as I find my groove and carve my core?

I am just another thought leader
dispelling cell phone reader’s theater
while the fall rain continues falling on me
and one thing is certain: I have let go of it all

Space Lord

I don’t have a penny to my name,
but will you love me anyway?

Money talks and bullshit walks,
so what do you have to say?

I know some people
that do anything for money
and judge by mere appearances,
but they are superficial and unhappy too

I am out here for me and you
and everybody and everything alive today
and anything that breathes the air forevermore

I’d tell you to do what you want,
but I know I don’t have to because
that’s exactly what you will always do

I suffer from sins that I don’t commit
I fight depression because
everything feels like fucking bullshit

I am patient and longsuffering,
willing to do anything
to see what holiness will bring

I cry, I sing
and I speak the bitter truth

I am flat broke,
but nobody can tell
and I quench my thirst
in a never-ending, living well
while most people are very busy
turning this planet into a living hell

I don’t want praise or your cash,
I just want you to do the right thing

Hanalei

Lush and green,
colorful and quite cloudy,
Kauai’s north shore is majestic

It’s high noon on the 1st
and I breathe in the air deeply
and appreciate the gentle breeze
blowing through the beautiful trees
and I am inspired to put pen to paper

I have no idea when or where I’ll crash,
but I am flying high right now

A firefly floats by
as a helicopter zooms across the sky
and lots of loud birds walk around a cute cat or two

People mill around like they’re seeking something
and they will probably eat and socialize
and shop for some good buys

Even the blind could sense beauty here
because it permeates everything
and makes me sing
despite the neverending filth
that is always around the corner

Fucking Good

You are pretty,
but who’s fucking you?

I don’t believe
that you’re here alone,
so where is the ugly dude
that bought your plane tickets
and paid your way to come to Kauai?

Oh there he is,
yes, he’s an arrogant ass,
so you must be fucking him good

I Won’t Stop Now

I hope I didn’t let you down,
I’ve been up and around,
learning a thing or two,
but most of all I’ve seen
the effects of being honest,
sometimes it pays dividends,
but it can feel like subtraction

See ball, hit ball
is a good philosophy,
it covers nearly everything
without doing too much thinking

People may spend political capital
to make somebody else happy,
but I say what I think and
it’s what fearful, voiceless people say
when they acquire courage and a medium

Woe to the ones that pushed Jesus over the edge
and made him correct the many
because I feel his pain

Our Independence

I saw you again tonight and
it was like lightning striking thrice,
you turned around and looked at me,
so I watched you climb high
and I felt you feeling me

You were as beautiful as ever
and we should do whatever
infatuated people do,
but you have to wait
I am going away
for a spell

My Hot New Follower

Coming all the way from Alabama,
she grabbed my full attention
like she did long ago and
I could not look away

She was comfortable in her own skin and
her body looked totally perfect to me,
laying fully naked on her back
so everybody could see
her big, pert breasts,
hard, flat tummy
and long legs

How lucky could one man be?
I’m on a distant island in the sea and
I get to admire Whirly and her fleshy lips
smiling, spread out, live and completely free

Ancient people could not even dream this big!

Her Beauty

She was cute and very sexy,
what an amazing package,
clearly untraumatized,
she caught my eye

Emotions ran wild with excitement,
interest, curiosity and attraction,
not to mention stimulation
when she smiled at me

Has a little flirting ever hurt two consenting adults?

Sometimes I feel like damaged goods,
but in many ways I am better now,
more mature and without guile,
her brother or her lover
admiring her smile,
whatever she needs is fine
and I can see she’s wired to please too

The magical give and take of successful relationships...

Not getting phone numbers daily feels good,
I am not that guy anymore and it probably shows
whether or not I’ll seek a relationship nobody knows,
but I hope to see her again and I pledge to be around
in case I am needed and I promise to improve every day
and learn what I need to say in every situation that I am in

Flung into this world again,
maybe I just need a new friend
to admire and inspire her beauty

#16

Today I published another book of poetry,
so I could keep a volume of what crossed my mind
and my unique path in Spring, Summer and some of the Fall

Writing is my lovely burden and it is also a double-edged sword,
something I do when I am happy, sad, wondering or bored
to convey a message with a beginning and an ending,
even though life is not always so tidy and clean

Two liberal states and two Hawaiian islands in the sea
inspired me and I milked them for all I could see
and articulated my thoughts and feelings
about things that were in front of me

Now I’ve published 1,260 poems in 16 books
and I’m writing like there’s no tomorrow
because the future’s uncertain,
but one thing is clear,
I am not giving up or giving in,
I’m living victoriously abstaining from sin
just like the man that I always should’ve been

When the Lights Go Out

The warm sun heats my body and
makes me sweat as I sit on a wooden bench
at the beach and watch the ocean waves crashing

The sun will set soon and
I’ll take some pics and tweet them,
my followers will predictably like them too

Things could be great here and everywhere,
but businesses and consumers are in bed together and
the government stands idle while they scratch each other’s backs

There was a day when people refused to do evil,
businesses couldn’t even sell destruction
because nobody was going to buy it,
but those days are long gone

Where is hope today?
What am I supposed to do
while it’s slowly slipping away?

I’ve repented and I see the light,
it guides me every day and night,
I want to be righteous and pure and
I reject evil even though it’s everywhere

Bloody revolution screams on a horizon,
but they cannot see it coming and
world war knocks on the door,
but they won’t stop it either

They plan and wait
making moves like chess,
expecting chaos and deaths
until the deliverer descends and shouts,
supposedly ending it all with his angry rage,
ushering in a peaceful new age across the world
