INBETWEEN

In between circles of confusing chaotic mumbles
please at least grant me a peaceful night rest
and save me the fight with my soul
me, myself and I
or the silhouetted fantômes
of undead troubles lashing
out before me

Wrenching out my still beating heart
with such force it hurts
I gape etonné
In between catching my breath
in between my vocal chords snapping in two
in between the struggle
in between my life flashing by
flick by rapid flick
I remain immobile


In between waiting for demain
for the stars to give way
to a beautifuless sky
full of nothing
'save the rains
in between sitting through the rainfall
eating cold ice cream
in between the pitch blackness
when I close my eyes
in between a flooded mind
a sunflower in the middle of a corn field
in between a world obsessed with unity
of a billion wars
fighting so hard to keep the pack of dead alive
wanting, yet not getting


In between the slow motion
of pain a mother
brings forth the nine month old thing
and how the the fragile thing
would one day germinate into
a man
or something In between
and one day would want to
transform into a woman
or a robot
or both


In between the strings attached
unattached and reattached
In between the cold frustration
purple anger
blue sickness
yellow fevers
and black neutrality
I never forget
au nom de Venus
I never forget your face.

MARY DOES NOT KNOW

September1       September ushered in the last of the rains;  the kind that fell noiselessly and without the fierce winds like in May and June. 

May 17        May was when I saw it, the fierce eyes of Soluja the mad man. it had been a cloudy day, one where, the blackness of the cloud thickened, breaking up now and then with thunder and lightening, darkening my mood like charcoal.
       i was sitting by the window of the moving bus, lost in thought, what people refer to as being "absent minded," when my eyes met the mad man's. i'd expected to meet a blank expression but what my eyes saw were alert pupils; pointy unblinking eyes  with an air of artistic craziness. almost as if he could see through my fears, past my boldness to dare stare at him. he could see all of my secrets and those eyes,  still haunt me till this day...  

June 5           if i turned, she would definitely know i was staring at her and i wasn't about to give her the satisfaction of being admired. low…
