Ϛtraɳɠe Ϛa̍ʛ̍əs̍


May 20 by The Running Son






If good times are coming
let ’em come. Stop running,
take a pill, chill, winning runners
running doing nothing
loving anyone for nothing.

Cinderella cinder-blocking
Cane, taking able-bodied
teenage lobby-waiters
mocking stones, Sage-ing tamers.
Later ages of young trade-labor

stages and home-life victim-wives
buying knifes, small white lights–
all surgeries sicken my eyes! When doses
are over-sized or over-prized, something
pops-open deep inside Gods eyes.

And angels are then named,
and great fires on horizons
named in versions of the bible,
canonized and Billy idolized
by tragic titles, like Ziggy smiles,

and “star-walk dusty files”.
Left-hand talking sages are playing
ageless messages, in strange
and not so famous sayings,
and making public tribute payings.

No matter good times or not,
I’m making good on things.

    Oooooooo…so that’s how God decides…I’d been wondering! The important thing is ”
    no matter good times or not
    I’m making good on things.”
    Too bad I can’t like…no button lol !!!

  5. Though stanza 2 and 3 hermetic for me, I love the rhythm . O you’ve come a long way, Jim.
