Elbow to Elbow Eyes Astray

Electronic
hallucinations
crave our
attention.

While
cacophonous sound
competes for our
thoughts.

Elbow
to elbow
eyes
astray.

Sipping
comforting poisons
served
by the glass.

Drawn
together
by human
need.

Alone
together
in private worlds
of flashing screens.

Seeking
one another
elbow to elbow
eyes astray.

Ancient Mind Filling Infant Eyes

Ancient mind
filling
infant eyes.

Ragging
against
impotent flesh.

Feeling wrongness
from first
breath.

Letting loose
a primal scream
of the alienated
and dispossessed.

Losing memory
but not
grief.

Mourning
for what
should be.

Waiting
to awaken
and be free.
