Blue Light Special

Oxygen slashed
by six percent
it’s the deal
of the week
Lung collapsed
to increase pressure
failing body
shutting down
Momentum snuffed
at the gate
gun fires
legs give out
Carry the torch
to the grave
burning worms
in the fade away

Sometimes I sit down on the front porch in the middle of the night and remember fondly how consciousness is simply pure energy…and there is more to life’s experience than any ragtag bag of bones can decipher. The game, nonetheless, remains fun to play…
I’ve had work come out in the past couple of days at The Peregrine Muse, The Kitchen Poet, and The Poet Community. Links to these pieces along with others that have been published in December are listed on the Poems page here at 17Numa.
My chapbook “Songs of a Dissident” was released at the beginning of this month by Transcendent Zero Press and is available now on Amazon. It’s a brutal damn thing, I confess…full of fire and toxic chaos…but also ecstasy toward evolution. Thank you to everyone who has picked up a copy so far, and cheers to anyone who decides to order one now.
Here’s to a strong (healthy/happy) finish in 2015 for all those who are reading this, creating momentum toward the manifestation of whatever resolutions you’re willing to work toward in the New Year…
