…on New Material For The Band

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on April 23, 2013 by journeymantojo

 

COLD COMFORT OF A DULL EDGE

Let this moment last until forever

Now everlasting
Has drifted into past and it never
Simple climb and beyond the neon alighting
Just
Drifts away

I
Am the
E-volution
Of
The new
All-consuming

AND I’VE NEVER SEEN A BATTLE LIKE THIS

Let this moment last until

Now breakfasting
Has lighted into day and of none
Tumble down and behold the neon colliding
Just
Drifts away

If
You fear
So truly
Be
And feed
It to me

RAZED TO A BLOOD CURDLING FIT

Be doubt
Be pain
Be alone

Let this moment last
Before it just drifts

FROM CLOUD
FROM STRENGTH
FROM HOPE
AWAY

…on Why I Should Be In The Band

Posted in Brain Droppings, Music, Poetry with tags , , on January 14, 2012 by journeymantojo

I’ve had a few runs at joining bands. And I’ve written some poems. And at the urging of some friends, I’ve decided to share some. Hope you enjoy.

A SOLID STATE

Things I think
Thoughts are through

Felt these feelings
Filed as fool

Fill me
Thoroughly

Caramel champagne ghost she
Delightfully
Morning wakeness evergreen she
Embraces

Lingering expectation that ferocious
Perfume
Dances wild laughing she feline
Naked

Marble
Wonderland daughter
Poison
Sleeping heartless

A draught of loss
A drought of hope
Drinking in every moment

 

And as a lark, I’ve decided to include a battle rap I wrote a while back. You know, to show I can sometimes emcee if need be.

BATTLE RAP

I’m mystic
Cryptic
Solar ecliptic
You missed it
As I launch verbal ballistics

An efficient murder seems a lost cause
If I wanted your opinion, I’d work your jaw
Sometimes a thought is wasted on some
This verbal jism, my words are waiting to come
Sonnets and poetry just fall from my lips
Words and verbs like milk from a tit
Landing in your ear, make your brain all sticky
A bag of dildos, you know, a little bit dicky
If you think my words are nuts, then try on deez
My thoughts get busier than your mom on her knees
Now there’s an image that’s kinda revolting
Look at me, I’m so angry, I’m molting
Yeah, I just quoted Aladdin in my rhyme
But you’re fat and you’ll be it all the time

 

Thank you!

…on Follow Up Posts: Some Poetry I Wrote A While Back

Posted in Brain Droppings, Poetry with tags , on January 6, 2012 by journeymantojo

The following is a poem I wrote on a dare. A friend handed me a jumbled mess of words (They were those refrigerator poetry magnets.) and said “Do a poem with these words. Have it make sense.” When I was done he said “Wow! Dude this is good.” So I kept it. Let’s see if you can guess what I was going through when I wrote this.

 

Caramel champagne ghost delightfully cloud
Morning wakeness evergreen she embraces
Marble
Wonderland daughter

Lingering expectation that ferocious perfume
Dances wild laughing she feline naked
Poison
Sleeping heartless
