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

The West End

Before I know it I will be gone and
moving on to the next episode,
I’ve spent so much time here,
but it has been well spent,
I have a lot to show for it

Such great beauty
didn’t need me
to point it out,
but I felt
like I
so I did

Amazing beauty beside horrendous filth
has evoked a response from me that
some people didn’t wanna see,
but I had to be honest

On An Island

Why am I still writing?

War, fear and wickedness abound and
I have to watch it all go down from a distance
like when my mom died in Grossmont Hospital and
my dad emailed me day by day as it tragically unfolded

I’ve made changes and I could make more,
but if everybody else doesn’t repent will it matter?

Disgusting people push into my world
and I keep transcending them,
but how many more times
will fools do evil?

Why are people so foolish?

Why do they think they can live that way?

Who hates evil?

Apparently, everybody loves wickedness
and just can’t get enough of it......

It’s 19 Now

It feels like the man is pushing down on me,
but I won’t stay down and I’ll keep my cool
even though they just play me for a fool

I’ll have a seriousness of purpose and a lightness of heart,
but they’ve tried to discourage and harm me from the very start

They are clueless and do what they’re told,
they aren’t used to questioning authority,
they’ve already been bought and sold,
so how will improvement ever come?

Fight evil and stand up to stupidity,
they make little sense for the life of me,
but they live for now, for themselves, carnally

Year’s End

Fuck you!
I know you’ll fuck up 2019
the same way that you fucked up 2018......

You will lie to yourself about yourself
and whitewash inconvenient truth
to let yourself continue doing
dumb things you’re doing
without being mindful
of consequences.

You will insulate yourself
from their righteous judgments
and judge others instead of yourself

Continual wrongdoing will darken your countenance
and you’ll discourage those that do right,
so rethink everything........

Like Endor

It is wet everywhere just like usual and
I am walking around Eden like a jedi
from a new world quickly evolving
right before their very eyes

Not trying to be anything,
but reacting and taking it all in
without denying the truth or the lie

So beauty is everywhere and
I know what it takes to get the job done,
the question is whether or not I want the position

Another Freaky Friday

I’ve already accomplished so much today that
it’s hard to believe I’ve been awake for three hours

Slamming soup and white wine,
on the run before hooking up
with Led Zeppelin n the sun

Here I am again n
it instantly warmed me,
with rays bouncing off the sea,
while a cool breeze blows from the NE

In the Lab

Figuring out two or three hops ahead is good for now,
counting everything as completely and accurately as possible

Taming tigers and
listening to the wolves,
content and discontent,
energized and paralyzed,
just like right needs the left

Maybe I have already done it
or something like it before,
so I can do it even better
the next time around

By envisioning everything,
I see what’s known and
imagine the unknown
with a sober reality

December 15, 2018 3:56 PM HST - Posted by Jason

To the Rhythm

I saw you again and you looked down,
petite and content in my presence,
but ready with bells on,
ripe for the pickin’,
could use a good lickin’

You look the same, but different,
so what changed? What do you eat?
Is it good for you? Just wondering.

Wanna blow this taco stand?
I am ready to go and I know you are too...

Whoa Girl

Beauty entered and
found its way in front of me
and slapped me across the face

It wasn’t her pants or her top or was it?
Have vertical lines and no bra
ever looked better?

What a sweet young soul
and a sweet spirit too,
humble and meek

Hasn’t she realized her divinity?
I see it right in front of me!

December 7, 2018 10:00 PM HST - Posted by Jason

She’s Such a Strong Singer

Singing like she means it,
she steals the show
like a spark plug
full of energy

I feel inspired
when I hear her voice
and I sing along with her band

You can feel the emotion
and the power that’s in the air
from the first note to the last note

At the end of the show
she’s a hot and sweaty mess
because she gave all that she had
and her fans always love her for it too

By the Sea

It’s funny
how everybody
uniquely enjoys a beach

Some people come with their friends
and play sand volleyball with a group,
others lay on a towel to get a suntan or
surf, body board, kayak or paddle board,
sunbathers take dips when they feel too hot
and dog owners walk their pet and grab its shit

Beachgoers skate, jog, walk or ride scooters or bikes,
families and groups like cooking meat on the grass
and others like taking a nap in the cool shade or
playing games, listening to music or talking,
but everyone has one thing in common,
everybody likes watching the sunset
and taking pictures of everything

Most people rinse off or shower before leaving,
so they don’t "bring the beach home" with them
and fill their vehicle with lots of salt, sand n sweat

Earning My Stripes

Cloudy days can be depressing,
especially when there are many in a row,
when they blot out the sun things are darker
and there is always a chance that it could rain

Cloudy days can make it humid and muggy,
so when I ride my bike somewhere I get sweaty

I don’t mind a few clouds though,
they give the sky some character,
especially when the sun’s setting

The Song Remains the Same

Everything is falling apart
and breaking down now,
people live in squalor
and don’t know it,
they just want
to buy stuff

Racing toward oblivion,
reports of extinction, starvation
and major, worldwide catastrophes

Circling back to me,
I must finish what I started
and finish strong,
so I can move on
to more chapters

I am writing on the last blank pages,
it’s Thanksgiving and I just ate
and now I am at the beach
with some party favors
that’d make Brett Kavanaugh proud

The wind is blowing my hair
and I am listening to music
while sitting cross-legged

Things can slow down if you want,
they don’t have to keep flying by
at a million miles an hour
and enveloping you

Nobody wants to be the worst,
they are a far cry from trying their best,
but that’s all they must be to make themselves,
their fans and people in the country relatively happy

Up all night again,
but no sleeping today
because I needed to wash my laundry
and now I’m wide awake waiting for the library to open
since it is a good of a place as any to get online and recharge

It’s a beautiful day in Honolulu, Hawaii
because there is a gentle breeze
blowing some stray clouds
after a mid-morning rain,
sunlight on my face,
the heat is rising

I sit on concrete steps n wait till 10 a.m.,
ready to treat this day with tenacity
like I have never done it before,
violently storming kingdoms
like the men of renown,
giant, mighty men

Just Smile

Just smile!
We’ll burn gasoline on you,
but we still want you to smile real big

It doesn’t matter
which day it is
or what time it is,
we want you to smile

Yes, we may smoke cigarettes
on you every single day and
let others get away with it,
but we still want you to smile

Chronic Changing

It’s almost time
to start exhorting,
yelling and screaming
at the powers that be and
I know that they can hear me

This country needs a tweak or two and
I am not ready to let it go just yet

Even using friendly fire,
setting everything I see afire,
in no uncertain terms for everybody,
what does it really matter to me?
I am just managing my anxiety,
but like with my depression,
I’ve learned to live with it

It is all about synthesis,
taking each one of the voices
and treating them the same way
and pounding out one unified voice
while maintaining distinct differences

Pearls of Wisdom

Twitter suspended me for a week
and it has been bittersweet

The break has been refreshing
and I’ve had one fewer thing to do
which has given me hours of life back

Twitter is fun because
I tweet people round Earth
and read stories about them,
whether or not they directly reply,
I see what they say n how they say it

Some things are stuff people should already know though
and other things feel like throwing pearls before swine

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

November 6, 2018 1:00 AM HST - Posted by Jason


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

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

November 1, 2018 8:15 PM HST - Posted by Jason

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!

October 15, 2018 8:37 PM HST - Posted by Jason

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

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
