Outer Space

Psychonautical

Traversing the worst terrain
the crust is veined and stained
by the binary brain system,
but I see some distant twisted vistas
colored by crystals,
covered by mystic thistles
with little meteor missiles 
hitting the moons above,
I was in love…
Sad that I 
had this iridescent
event of bliss broken
by the splatter of the Hatter’s 
Mercury Flurries 
upon grey matter,
now the circuitry is in disarray 
and I’m flattered by the way 
you hate me.


Tirelessly Training
maintaining my whole grain insanity,
my humanity,
I’m positive that the cause of it
is this Pearlescent Pear Wine,
it’s the definition of divine.
Please remedy, sit steady,
so ready to recline
and read some lines
to the fading
alien
sunshine.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I'll never get the chance to travel into outer space, but at least we'll always have a deep inner one. ~ Carmello Yello [Alex] 

When I Die - Part 1

My first will and testimony,
May it not be my last.
Life has been so swell for me,
Thirty-one years have past,

It seems a bit on the early side,
to consider planning death,
But who on earth can estimate,
how much time they have left?

My first request of many for my death,
is burn me til there's nearly nothing left,
nothing but the ashes of my bones
secure them in an urn stored safe at home,

When in fact a member of my blood,
can reach beyond the earth to outer space
be tasked to spread my ashes up above
spread them in a cold and distant place

For dust of ash forms planets, stars, and more
A celestial presence in areas unexplored,
Is more than what I could hope to receive,
When in this life I'm called to take my leave
