YA NEVER KNOW ABOUT FAMILY RETREATS

this ambitious cowboy
isn’t about the quickest draw.
it’s about an inner being
w a powerful sight
full of developed and developin blossoms.
all that smoke
of the most malignant intent
that came to mama,
left me just to wanna redeem
her life here on earth.
those raw deals
time after time fightin bi-polar
can really work on a sensitive spirit.
but ya know,
i’ve been on this horse for so long
as a lone ranger traveler,
ya just never know what might transpire.
but this moment it’s as if the beats
of the hoofs leaves me a message from her saying,
“it’s time for ya to cross that river
n let the world know that life
isn’t any plain trail
when it comes to distinction
of a family w a fightin spirited heritage”.

THE GLARE ON MY BACK

cool n quiet
in the long silences,
is a man
havin a meetin
between himself n ambitions
to make words
come off the paper in a savage roar.
ya just gotta hang around
lying around somewhere
in the wilderness of america,
n keep the eyes
on the sunset
in a secluded spot
where the oaks n maples
breathe in the leaves,
n think like a thief w quiet feet.
it take a lot of loneliness
to create significant change
while hangin w zane grey
teachin the education
to steal a little bit of money
in a moonlighting metaphor,
n think like, it takes a fuckin long time
for people in northwestern pa
to see ya have some god forsaken value!!
