Between God And Him

Fate plays the role
of a quirky selective
middleman collecting
his unfulfilled dreams
sweeping them into
a cosmic dustpan
the pain the agony
of the highly politicized
betrayed conned defrauded
common man ..he was taken
for a ride he lost everything
there he lies on the road
unnervingly  discarded
this politically naive
poorman ..on his
inert body his hope
serpentine they peed
laughingly all the way
to the bank they ran

to my friend meld in mindlessness and poetic mess

I Shoot Hope Going Up In Smoke

a beggar poet
god destined
will eternally
be broke
a battered
wallet
a tattered
heart
an empty
bottle of
coke
once he
saw heaps
of money
littered on
the cosmic
bed he
realized
it was birds
feathers
when he
awoke
life is
nothing
but a
plaintive
joke

to live
or just
croak
different
strokes
broken
wheel
disjointed
spokes
