In the evening when the day is done
And no more is the light from the sun,
I look upon the stars Heaven high
And find gratefulness deep inside.
But then there are nights a storm rolls in,
And the twinkles disappear above the lightning.
The thunder accompanying the flash,
Lets me embrace the rain's splash.
These strikes pealing within the darkness
Makes me feel I have been blessed.
For there is …

Dogs Don't Bark at Parked Cars

Post by crossxfire on Tue Jun 11, 2013 10:51 pm

He surrendered his life like a well worn lease
through the narrow eyes of the law,
having sloshed through puddles of spiritual darkness,
feeling fearfully delectable to the variety in animal tastes.

He took his last breath.
We call it death, the absence of life;
but his energy's complexity paid homage to his gratitude
for all those who strove to make his world a better place.

Coldness sat in like the relevance of his humanity,
escorting him into the abyss before morphing into fractals
condensed in voluminous clouds of statistics.
Data reigns and showers all who shelter, cup, or drown.

Some drenched in puddles of spiritual darkness
like those dropping the floor from under him face down;
Some like him, sacrificed as dead weight under
a constellation of cacophonous pitter-patter tweeter chatter.

Left to float like shining oil on broken pavement,
evaporating senselessly from lidless bell jars,
oblivious to the dog whistles of credulity and self-delusion,
yet knowing that dogs don't bark at the parked cars.

That's Dark like Nam.  The tire tracks of eternity can come anywhere. They just look differently in the eyes of the knowing.
Good stuff. Makes one think.  That's good, if we can think w/o remembering too much.
