Death of poetry

It begins with knowing,
And knowing too much;
like going to a school
And then a college,
Reading thick books
And talking about writing all the time.

But I don’t know if people talk
Enough
Of this disease
that poets endure
somewhere in the mid-fifties,
where every word, every word
seems like a suave hand shake,
And you stop playing dirty
And disgusting; mining and drilling
Making larger and larger empty holes.

It seems.
You know.
Where to talk
How to talk
Where a comma begins,
And your career ends.

It all is numbers;
A bigger scare than your fifth grade maths teacher
You slip into your pajamas, listen to lullaby
And sleep at 9. While she knocks and knocks
Until her hand fades away.

You wake up to find
An old memory
Of knocking and you think it was fucking
You strip them naked, parade them and
Make clowns, set up tents, and a whole fucking
Circus town.

“Something is amiss”
You say
And you continue sleeping
Until you fall dead.

A wrecked ship hangin near an abandoned dock, waiting for someone.

A knowledge so deep

is ignorant of its bi-polarity

 

Love might be a cocktail of chemicals

then why don’t chemists write?

 

A knowledge so old

its new to a fresh born

 

Love is a chieche

then why do people make that mistake again?

 

Murder is knowledge

of life’s existance

Violence brings the foreplay

Death begins life.

 

But if knowledge is all

then why do I need to know?

isnt it too reduntant to know the obvious.

 

The ship once so wrecked

so ignored in knowledge

died; creashing it’s bark to the waves.
