Six Poems ... #1

OK ... so I was able to get some time to get these things typed up. I'm WAY behind on everything else ... yesterday was just plain exhausting, and I crashed early and slept through ... am pushing to get these up before we have to head out AGAIN ...

                    AGAINST THIS SEA OF BILE


                    1
                    sometimes
                    it is not the reason,
                    sometimes
                    it's just the words,
                    or the drive
                    to scrawl ink on page,
                    the need
                    to make these real
                    2
                    inverted function,
                    disemboweled tide,
                    we are left the scars
                    of all this damage,
                    still, within the strangeness
                    some familiarity resides,
                    as if by mirrors
                    or lenses distorted
                    3
                    the roots of isolation
                    erupt today
                    we watch as milestones
                    flood to pasts,
                    unable to act,
                    frozen in time,
                    or somehow outside it
                    in vague exile zones
                    4
                    all that is right
                    within my world
                    is not enough
                    to stem the torrent
                    of wrongs from the mundane;
                    no matter how sweet a moment is
                    it can not last
                    against this sea of bile
                    5
                    too much of need
                    and of demand,
                    the hours bleed
                    leaving me drained
                    unable to effect the change
                    which would turn the world
                    and shift the age
                    in fresh alignment
