I ATE THE SUNFLOWER SEEDS

Folder: 
BARD'S SHARDS

 

I ate the sunflower seeds

scattered about the table

in endless masquerade

of chitter chatter malarkey

of the plight of winged doubters

 

My vision propelled into uneasy orbit

across the dining room floor

glancing up and down the china & lace

      feathers of a different dove

elucidated in perpetual longing

 

The same old house in its half divine

simplicity of  brilliant light

Hope left so divine in venial sin

for apocalyptic, blasphemous lust

     hence

pandering in duality the dreams

     of youth

 

but in twisted, effulgent chimera

the poet’s eye sough obscene purity

in the dashing heroics of saints

My fraudulent vision left no scars

no remnants of poetry or dream

 

Tangible reasons for movement;

the spirit rising like a phoenix

the naked need for food

and lust for passionate pulse of life

Interplay along elaborate streams

     of consciousness

 

Angelic whispers dampered into

frazzled brain cells meandering

over plausible dreamlife hopes

    with faith & life

needless thought provocation

of visions listed truthfully
