Earth Circles

I can no longer care bear 
About your karma chameleon 
You may see me 
Walking
Circles on Earth
Footprints in dirt
But I have wings in the ether
I have wings on other sides
I have wings in different colors, many models, every size
And my dreams that take me places
Like my dandelion ride
Still I'm here, I had to try
Should you need, I will stand by
At the bottom of a building
Where they say you went to die  
I will be there with my trampoline 
So that instead -
You fly

Meeting Up

I've ray wings 
To keep me from drowning
At day things
I've bat wings
To navigate night dreams
When sleeping 
And fae wings
To help me with grounding
In-between 
I've these wings
And more than I'm mentioning 
For meeting
Up

They May

Spiders and snakes
They can take, take, and take
By design or mistake 
They may both kill their mates
Makes a not-so-nice fate
For their dumbfounded dates
Who have found themselves bait 
For what won't play life straight
Love yourself first and state
I'd like not to be ate
If this wakes them, then great
But so long, goodbye, late

Two Crows

Two crows come to listen
When you're on guitar
They travel dimensions 
From long and from far
Say don't make renditions -
Play covers in bars
Use your intuition
Not others' art
The fuel for your engine
What sets you apart 
Is your own invention -
Through love in your heart

Will Still

If you tie up my wrists
Try to wire shut my lips
I will still swing these hips
Cause the currents to shift 
Turn to mermaid, swish swish!
Can I create like this?
Yes, you bet your big dick

Invoice

I'm invoicing, God
For doing my job
Thanks for Fridays off...
But time to pay, boss
However you please
In songbirds and bees
With flowers and trees
In tradewinds and tea
In things I can eat
Kind people to meet
Support that I need
In light I can see
A night of good sleep
Whatever it be
I know you agree
One fine employee 
And we have receipts

Rockinghorse Run

Rockinghorse, come
OCD is so done
Stand up straight and stun
Grow legs, go have fun
Release yourself, run
Run

A Mirror

Attack a mirror
In fear
Of course, you'll be cut
So see clearer
My dear
Or duck

Retire Vampire

Retire, vampire
You're too old for this
Expire, empire
You've built on shit bricks
Rewire, required
A prerequisite 
A scriber, and liar
Can not coexist 
Inspire, go higher
This class is dismissed

Hiding Tiger

Hiding tiger in my tree
Watching stallions wild and free
Wishing I was one of these
I make them an enemy
Villianizing fantasy
I owe an apology
What I wanted was to be
Seen and loved for being me
Stay inside the sky and seethe -
Writhe and cry and beg and bleed
Maybe, but eventually...
I'll come down and crown myself
Queen

Someday

Walk on water, weave through air
Human here I guess - who cares?
I'll stand by my sea and stare
Someday I'll be back in there

Why

White like the lies in the words we don't speak
Clear as the tears from the sky while I weep
Dim like the light of your ship lost at sea
Why would you steer from our island I keep?
Cost is your soul when you sold it to be...
Seen by the eye that can not actually see
What could I write that would let me feel free?
Why? Must I die? Please deliver me peace

Room for Cream

I drink coffee black
But I leave room for cream
When I want what I lack
Then I must dare to dream 

See Me

Bee wings back, big eyes black
Coffee colored tresses lax
Ribbon curls around my rack
Petals placed across my snatch
Fairy ring around me stacked
Changeling on my mushroom mat
Can you see me? Kindly clap 
Need belief to make contact

Jellyfish Sequence

1,2,3
Priorities
Smoke, mirror, sea
Remember me?
Moon, minnow, grief
Drying Pisces
Sky, sorrow, beach
Skeleton key
Sleep

My Smile

How do I decorate myself?
With water where the wild things dwelt
The sword inside Orion's Belt 
With ancient tales the Toltec telt
In stones Medusa's snakes had dealt
My smile to make them break and melt
With all the love our Father felt
And light left as His angel fell
I disagree with Miss Chanel
I'll take things off when I'm in Hell

Graduate

Students ready, teachers here
Suddenly we both appear
Patience please, for both our sake
I am trying to caretake
She asks me to walk by faith
I her to communicate
Lending hand and listening ear
I can hear her loud and clear 
She sees me through facing fear
I'd abandoned my career
Thrive inside a twist of fate
Speak despite delay in rate
Love is all you need and take
Now we get to graduate

Traveling Light

I wonder what his heart looks like
A cypress tree and starry night
Like grenadine with Diet Sprite
The streamers on a child's bike
Cathedral bells and falling rice
Or ocean swells 'neath diamond kites
Like tinsel strands and traveling light?
He'll show me once he knows I'm right

The Mouse

With candy cane handcuffs, there needn't be keys 
Mistreat me this Christmas, I chew through and leave
My quips are my missiles and kisses deadly
Such insulin shock, you could drop and decease
Curled up with the kittens in mistletoe leaves
One eye on my business and cheese as I sleep
I've predators present at every degree
And ready or not, it's your thoughts I can read
So know this - I'm focused, and I will succeed 
The mouse in my house always stirring is me

God Boss

Love for an art
Heart for a home
God for a boss
Leave me alone

Jenga

Murder, mansion, mystery 
Do you know your history?
Queen of Hearts in memory 
Might I be your enemy?
Pick the candlestick and see 
Clues are in my poetry
House of cards and car of clowns
State of mind that wasn't sound
Sorry! Scrabble word not found
Back to basic starting ground
I'm in wind and when I'm round...
Jenga, all your walls come down

Show & Tell

Show & tell
Should've known
Swallowed whole
Spit up bones
Is this you 
Off your throne?
Without wings
All alone
Could've moved
Would have grown
Wouldn't you
Have rather flown?
Face your fear
Change your tone
Find your way
Phone your home
