Darkness As Shadow

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

No substance, all shadow

all darkness and howling defense

of past guilts and failures comprise

mostly the basis of your lame

attempts to be right. Accuracy

is not a highlight when your mouth

opens and utters factless logic.

.

I love a good cat fight when the claws

are unsheathed, the teeth sharpened

and exposed. A low hiss adds to the drama

so by all measures, hiss more. I love 

the taste of blood in the air, on the fur, 

or in the water.

.

The attempt to cowl and control is

off the charts and you really have no

authority or the personality to convince

a dog to not pee on your azaleas

so, take it elsewhere. Wanting 

to be ominous and dangerous, feared

and yet loved, such darkness is a shadow

of a substance you relinquished at the gate

of avarice and narcissism.

. 

I am not your trash can so you will find

no home here for your disease-ridden hide

of rotting superiority without substance

bullshit as nonsense. Posturing is not as 

effective as action so, your worst is a mass 

of words followed only by more words 

and words and words. After a while everyone 

stops noticing your acrimony oddly aimed. 

Time proves that it is all air, and, piteously, 

all you own.
