Black Mirror 4 28 2020

You show me
More
When only my energy
Flows
Through you

Black Mirror
I see
What others can’t show
I hear
What others can’t speak
I feel
What others can’t touch

Breath in
Breath out
People are just people
Living
Fallacies way away
From
Me and mine

But I can
Will
Explore them
And
Not mistake them
As
Mine

will u b my4ever blue sky

will u b my 4ever blue sky
of endless possibilities
punctuated by wispy clouds
of transient doubt
?

will u hear w/me
ghosts crying nightly
mere memories
not prophesies
?

as 2being1
will u speak truths
only us2 will hear
in our souls
?

will u come& go
with me
neither leader
nor follower
?

will u blossom
as i bloom
wither
as i falter
?

will u b my4ever
sun
my4ever
moon
my4ever
stars
?

“yes,” we said
the Word
resonating
in our4ever
soul
.

Outlaw Truth

words that cut
sharpened by truth
turn no deaf ears
in this morning’s light

warned by The Universe
to give us this day
its Daily Bread
i shall go armed
only with insight
carried on wings
of outlaw truth

singleness of purpose
battling injustices
profound and profane
under building storm clouds

B4Life

when U know pain in your gut lost in your own fog
B4U clearly seeing
it in your lover’s eyes

when U see bullets flying
and hear victims’ screams
B4U hearing the newcast

when anxiety grips U
B4U hearing a child sobs

when U feel all aroused
B4U hearing the lover’s orgasm

B4Life gets U all riled
as everything flows
in out through U
in out through mind’s I

B4I react
instead gotta chill
gotta know what’s mine
gotta know what’s yours

can’t own shit
(no matter how good/bad)
if it’s your B4Life
but I add blessings
2 the lightstream
flowing ‘tween us
in our here and now
