    dotsA Happy Summer Poemdots
    -------------------------------------------


    The walls bleed memories
    The sky shakes off It's dry
    Dead skin in anticipation for
    The sun to shine it's hottest for
    Summer
    The heat makes brittle,
    Old things.

    It is a vampire.

    Draining what it can from the full,
    But concentrating mostly on finishing off
    The last drops of anything from
    That which is used up
    So that it cannot be refilled,
    Again.

    Cruel world laws.

    Winter embodied rest & recharge,
    And now it is time again to
    Pay The Piper.

    Discarded soda containers &
    Cigarette butts line busy streets.
    Two legged animals meander wrapped up
    In the sick warmth of their own depravities.

    It's impossible to be in the green
    When there is no longer a fountain of life.
    Worthless batteries, built to be self concerned
    To distract from the importance of absolute truth.

    We are told it doesn't exist.
    So we don't have to seek it.
    So that we may be excused
    To make up our very own...
    To manifest comfort in our clans or kin
    Or friends
    In our self made universes
    Where we can 'bear' our self created
    Realities.

    Nevertheless the pulse of the system keeps on
    Drumming away
    Sometimes the pulsing in our ears gets to be
    Just too much to bear, and
    We try to cave our own heads in to make it stop
    Beating.
    Beating.
    Beating.

    Even the creatures survive in quiet desperation
    If time existed,
    I'm sure the consensus would be
    That it's running out.

    So let's have our drinks with ice & straws,
    And enjoy the baseball season, A/C &
    Plastic 'outdoor' chairs of an offensive
    Color persuasion until the world falls
    Dramatically straight off it's axis.

    While we in chosen ignorance
    Get high off of
    Our precious poisons:
    Indulgence
    Pleasure
    Ego &
    Self Exaltion
    At the expense of

    Everything.

    To simply be superior in our own worlds
    To be lesser gods
    Of a minute kingdom of nothing
    We need to pretend is

    Something.

    As long as we bury our heads
    Into our own mirrors, and
    View the world only through
    Bias,
    Unbending,
    Limited perception
    You Painted Glasses
    There will be un-justice & misery
    In this collaberative existence
    Known as "Life".
