Eye of an Old Woman

I have a liquid eye
my world surpasses the years
I've been here
My ears are like funnels
Vacuum, sucking
I see like a tornado
My ears, the eye of the storm
Everyone's word become
my own
Everyone's truth
Everyone's truth?
Yes, they are my own truths
Lies born through me
wrapped in filth and disgust
They become my demons that cannot

I see horrors, the nightly world gossip
My liquid eye swallows and swirls
taking it all in
My hands and feet bound together
The words of the world (but they are much more than the world)
ensconce me like wax,
molded around me
My head, like a wick remains

Everyone wants to see my eyes
My soul fly away in smoke
They torment me
My eyes pinned open
My ears unclogged
The Fury of the world
opens her mouth wide


Devastation! Destruction!
the earth's wasteland
Out fly the demons
Out fly the heavens
that They attempt to hold hostage

This terrorism
steams my liquid eye
My heart, my mind

Double Helix

Write the chaos
get it out
take it down
stare it in the face
Set free the terror in your breast
Feel the scratch and the ache
The gnawing from within...

When I begin,
if I can begin
winds will HOWL
and loves will be jilted
Desires pulled out of remission
eating away at memory
like corrupted DNA; replicating

Hearing and seeing
Your words all over again
lopsided smile pulling to the right
reluctant to reconcile with the schism
in my brain-
One side straight and clean
clear and arrogant
The other crestfallen and twisted
murky and congealed

Words of sadness
thrown away
Beat them down
bludgeon and lay waste
Fight back, be free
