reel to reel lamentations...the prisoner

reel to reel lamentations
fading fade silent sounds
in harmony blows upon blows
in search of sounds
stereo digital white noise
splashing guts the guts
i am gutted
low bass one note
another twenty years
to
write the same haiku
it
gives you depression…the blues
reel to reel lamentations
hanging my guitar on the poplar tree
i will not follow
my captors beat beating me to
my destination and destiny
i will not follow
i will not follow
i will not follow
sit sitting sit sitting sit
watch watching the river flow
smoke smoking smoke
prisoners dragged and burned
one pale horse of smoke
like clouds the documentation
with razor wire strung through
my blood caked lips…no tongue
another time in another place
leisurely afternoons of tea
in polite company
the footsteps near nearing
closer and closer boots on the ground
this time to pluck my eyes
…out…
i have seen enough
splashing guts the guts
i am gutted
reeling
my captors beat beating beat me to
my destination and my destiny
loop looping loop looped
unraveling
reel to reel lamentations

reel to reel lamentations...the prisoner

Artist's Description

Everything takes place in the mind and then there is reality of the unreality of reality…surreal is real life at times and can be like that old cliché “life is stranger than fiction…” Who is the prisoner and who is the captor or tormentor…? What transmission will you receive and what will you broadcast…? By what divinity is the divine…good or evil one and the same…?…they are the same…as the play plays out on the stage…insanity is all around us and is us…tune into the news crazy crazy fear fearing fear of fear all around us…killing killers kill…just to kill…lying lairs lie the Big Lie just to lie, black is white and white is black, madness is in our DNA.

One day we will be released, no more politics, no more religion no more pointless hate…and never to ask again…what is the purpose and meaning of …life…?

A footnote from The Book of Ruminations.
Anno Domini February 8, 2011.
