Spirit stands still, speaking as silk...
"Deceptive heart, won't you die here tonight? Do what is right?? Surrender the fight?! Dastardly, devilish, deceptive darn thing... won't you let me take wing? Too long have you ravaged and damaged our home; time to turn in the reigns with which you so roam!"
Flesh fights back, speaking attack...
"Defeated and dirty,
demented, distorted, distasteful, disdainful,
dismissed and dismayed.
dried up; decaying away.
unruly, resigned, imperfect, irate,
terribly truthfully tied up to tempt.
torn up and tarnished, tangled to tease,
Broken but bawling bent down on both knees.
Brazenly brash, bold, buckled belief.
Butchered and bloody, sweating off beads,
Brimming with bubbles belied, bent, and boiled.
Birthing belittlement, badgered, beguiled.
Bound-up blown-up, bombed-out, and born,
Blanked-out, built-down, browned black to burn.
Mistaken, marketed, moronic, yet made,
Mind matters molten, magmatic, misplaced.
Murkily mucked up, mastered, mislaid,
Missing, morose, macabre, most mundane.
Crestfallen, cloudy, clueless, and coddled,
Corny and coldened, calloused, and crowded.
Counter-cardinal, cowardly, cooped-up, cowable.
Caddy corner to crushed, crass, and crammed.
Pauperized, poor pushing pardon on pardon,
Pissed-off, put-down, placed-round and poured on.
Plentiful pounds placed on my waist,
Panting pernicious plausible plays.
Picky and pimply, pit-piping pores,
Pow-able, pining, preposterous spore.
Paddling, piddling, ping-ponging punk.
Placing 'pon riddles perfectly stunk.
Wrestling rigidly, worn, worked, and weary,
Weakened and winded, winding on weirdly,
Wordy and whiney and whimsically wasted,
Whistling ruckuses worthless with wanton.
Wrought with real wrinkled wrongs wound in wire,
Rose within moments, returned to fire."
I rise to meet my battle...
"At times I am this,
At times I am that.
The unfinished product.
The half-sculpted craft.
Deformed from clumsily selfish motives,
Repenting, an offering votive.
For matters the most in this world so unclean,
Is the One Who gets glory,
Not the American Dream."
