-Original Sin-

What he will give is the incipient bare minimum
of his heartbeat

He’ll reveal just
the washed out clamoring of his horded desire
all because there would be nothing left in his own perception
of a universe that may reduce his secret lust to nothing.
implode like terrorists on the fantasy of his greatness yet to come…

although we are born magnificent; which then gets blinded out by all the hearsay of our original sin

he won’t go too far with a notion of
blissful ‘otherness’
nor squeeze too many lemons

he’s got no room for confidence sugar stored
on his empty shelf
however negative space can be
a good thing

(he has heard)

he’s dumbfounded when he wants more from someone
and expects the best of their yet to be born
mind reading abilities to:

‘understand who he is’


“be gone I say!”
…(hehehe) writer could not help it

scathed in baby blisters by his choices so far…

it was of course!
all the:

Psycho babble of growing up in his Family of origin original sin

where he learned to swim so comfortably in precious

Aloneness -Aloofness

and there he became more real than ever

Ahh well—- it’s the grand excuse for

most of his life

until he feels the scratch of his riotous ‘settling for’
is bleeding bloody murder

and then one day he looks in the mirror and a ghost like

stroke (not yet manifested)

spotlights his over bearing mind to feel what it has
done did
disconnected with deeds of the heart
and foresight manipulation
for naught-

he then finds out his heart needed more than a cup of
tea and a scone (mid 40’s)

he finds out his emotional impasse was so damn


and that his lack of allowing others in
was truly a waste of mental constructs

this I know like my own dry eyed nodding

I was him

(the now pleasure of hindsight… 55)

but all the ‘do right’ stuff is cohesively on time
all the contrast that created a calling for
again and again

this leaning

to love

The main event has never been the manifestation, the main event has always been the way you feel, moment by moment, because that’s what life is.
