Meet me where the river kiss the sea
In the hour when the sun hugs the waves
Meet me for the last time, my black bird
My beautiful black bird that carry my freedom away
Meet me so I can kiss your wings good bye
And hold your heart in my palms for the last time
My black bird with feet swarthy  from dancing on live coals
With salt-encrusted skin and belly button full with hot sand
My blackbird with grass blades stamped on your back
Fly blackbird, my soul fly behind the horizon
The horizon that encloses the domesticated people
With homes and cars and loans and sweated T-shirts
Fly away blackbird, my soul, carry my kiss away

The Confession of One Swimmer

The River is so accepting -
A Lover who never says "No"
She'll take you in her embraces
For an Eternal Go.
She'll slide her gentle fingers
Along your knotty spine
And cool your sizzling surface
In her generous balm.
She'll turn you, and swirl you and suck you
Into her centerless flow
Until you lose your bearings
And she would never let go.
The River is ever so honest
She'll never feel remorse
Neither that she accepted you
Nor that you had to go.
She'll never complain that she gave you
What's up to her nature to give
And will be caressing your toes
Whenever you have to leave.
The river is so dead serious
To love her is not a game
But she is so unpretentious
That puts us all to shame.
let me embrace the River
As old Lover would
Let me make love to the River
One time beyond what I should.

Pledge

I pledge to kiss and kiss ans kiss,
Until my lips are torn,
Until my face rots and turns
In a mask of skeleton.

I pledge to touch and touch and touch,
Until my hands are gone
Until my fingers drop as bones,
On the time-eaten floor.

I pledge to take and give and thrust,
Until my body dies,
And then the bones will go clanking
In lively Totentanz.

And I don't care left or right,
I'm pledging to the Run
And if I stop, I pledge to bite
The barrel of my Gun.

Thank you, Dragon!

My Most Irreverent

I rebel against the rot
And the death of dreams
Up to the end of cosmic time
And all eternities.

And I will be angry still
When all this is gone
And I'm rotting in my grave
Under a speechless Stone.

And I will never wax acceptant
Of Life's relentless toll
Even when my Life is Goner
And the Riper rolls.

Even when it all is over -
Flesh and bone and dust
Anger will be haunting over
The place I used to rust.

And to all that is against me
And against all odds
I will be laughing mutely
In my Rebel song.

After all the bad and worse
Taken all in stride
All the Universe can kiss
My long-decayed backside.

Falling

Falling with an awesome power
Like a Body from the Tower
Like a Convict from a Gallows
And a Plane without Powers

Like a Rock into a Chasm
Like a Muscle into Spasm
Like a Drunk into Blackout
Politician into Clout

Like Hail, Thunder, like a Peach
From a branch no one could Reach
Falling like Waterfall
Like Lucifer in his Fall

Like a Coffin in a Grave
Like a Sword onto the Brave
Like a Curtain on a Stage
Like an Insult in a Rage

Like a ghost's Curse in a Tomb
Like a Doomed into his Doom
Like I'm Falling in on you
I'm so Falling hard for you.

Evening

I enter the shade of Evening
Her shawl of welcoming breeze
Her hands are taking me in
Her time is now to begin.

And I see how there stand out
The figures of all fading past
And all the possible tomorrows
Staring at me at last.

The Evening is so heavy
Like a woman in trance
With all vibrating futures
With all half-buried pasts,

She is the worse of all pregnancies
In which the pasts still thrives,
In which the future is shapeless...
...Evening so long lasts

She is dangerous like Gunpowder,
And merciless like a Stone...
If I survive Evening
I should be fit for Dawn.

Time

Time can mean the tightest Closeness
When the hours turn
When the curtains are fallen down
When acting is done

When only naked souls touch
When the masks are burned
When inside out one is turned
Outside in is sucked

In some timeless whirlwind
In some waterfall
When the fears are deleted
And the past is gone.

Time can mean the widest Chasm
Between the Runs
When the time so slows down
Than the minutes burn

When the hours turn in days
Seconds in weeks
When one feels that there is
Eternity one miss

When the masks are all in place -
And the act goes on
Show must go - and so have one
Tears himself apart

With the sharpest, longest, hardest
Hardest Teeth of all -
The Imprisonment of one's
Most in-secret soul.

Time ..... a Monster and a God,
Jailer, Angel, Saint,
Torquemada-worse-of-all
Heavy is your chain.

Homeless Home

From colored shells and broken glass
From pages of an old atlas
From round pebbles and water spree
Make Place for me.

From the seconds corner-sliced
From the mute time of the night
From the distance between two and three
Make Time for me.

From the dimple of your chin
From the thin space between
Where palms and fingers meet
Make Space for me.

From the softness of your skin
The silky fiber therein
From the curved line of your back
Build me a Shack.

From the calling of night owls
From the ringing of wild flowers
Call me a Call to which I run
Ere I come.

Fires

Fires burning in my Dreams -
Fires unremembered
Screaming behind closed eyelids
Lightnings in September

So close and so far away
 Mirage amidst Dunes
So well-known and so new
Like forgotten Tune,

Iron-heavy, like a Gun
Dangerous like Crime
And desired like a Trip
In unknown Realm

And so fleeting - flock of Birds
Melting in my mind...
I remember only Words -
Falling to the ground.

Hands II

If I could use my hands to fly
As birds their wings
I would let myself go high
Above yonder hills

I would let air kiss my skin
And light guide me in
Up above the clouds high
Above all that there is

Cars and people, banks and stores
High above these all
Chains that pull me with no mercy
To enforce control

I would fill my lips with Clouds
Kiss the Moon and Sky
I would slide and glide around
And never say "good bye".

If I could use my hands to fly
As birds their wings
I would have you in the Sky
With my burning lips.

When a Seashell Talks

On a shore I picked a Shell and put it to my ear
And listened long, long time to it till Time disappeared
Listened to the pulse it has old as is the Ocean
Listened to the rhythm of it deeply unforgotten

Listened like my Life alone depended on that Rhythm
Listened with all my Being like I had never listened
So I can hear with my Being and my thumping Blood
My being screaming for beginning long misunderstood

Something I gave up because it's a hurt to want
Something I was very sure I lost long ago.
But the Shell with me was honest as Nature always is
And it gave me all the answers I would even seek.

I kept the Shell with me in me like an antidote
To the poisons with which Society is wrought
And at one time or another I place it to my Me
So I hear Me inside - the way Me wants to Be.
...
And somewhere in the Thump with Whispers full
I can hear your Voice in Me calling me to come.

What I Can When I Can't

If I can't have your eyes on me
I'll take them to the Stars
And the Stars can take my soul
With their beady eyes.

If I can't have your hands on me
I'll take me to the Wind
And the Wind can hug me close
In it's impatient stream.

If I can't have your lips on mine
I'll take them to the Sun
And the Sun can kiss me over
Till my lips are burned.

If I can't have your voice to me
I'll go searching for the Storm
Till the Storm is calling me
For a full recall.

If I can't have you in my sight
I'll have you in my thought
My thoughts will envelop you
Like my hands cannot.

Counting by Thousands

Run me a thousand miles in a hour
Beat me a thousand beats
Rush me a thousand minutes in hour
Spin me a thousand spins
Take me a thousand takes in an hour
Give me a thousand gives
Turn me a thousand turns in a hour
Bring me a thousand brings
Hit me a thousand hits in an hour
Lift me a thousand lifts
Shatter my mind in a thousand pieces
Break me in thousand bits.

Search

It seems like I'd looking for you from before
Before the time of times
In glimpses, flashes, letters, books'
In musical phrases and rhymes

In trembling, in fear half misunderstood
In waves, in stars and rocks
It seems like for years I've looking for you
But gnawingly knowing it not,

In colors and symbols, in dance and in trance,
In falling and climbing, in rambling,
In betting, in losing, in taking a chance,
In logic, in paintings, in gambling,

In days and weeks, Septembers and Mays
In whirlwinds, in seas and oceans,
Behind closed eyes and unhearing years
In rhythms, in ruins, in potions

It feels like I've been on a long search for you
Without suspecting it so
Waiting for Time to wither and drop
And leave me alone with you.

Rain

Raindrops, raindrop, falling, flopping
On the ground so soaked through the skin
Raindrops they don't know how to stop
And the ground swallows them in.

Like tears, like tears of some cosmic Man
And of the pain of all human souls
Resigned and rebellious, mute from despair
Incessantly down rain falls.

And you would think that the ground would choke -
Such ultraterrestrial anguish is pouring -
But alas - waves of human pain rains -
And Nature ignores it...

I Miss You

I miss you like the Desert misses  Rain
I miss you like a Masochist his Pain
I miss you like a Beggar misses Change
I miss you like a Cripple miss his Cane

I miss you like an Addict miss his Stuff
I miss you like a Housewife her Roof
I miss you like a Biker miss his Ride
I miss you like a Fighter miss his Fight

I miss you like a Shooter miss his Gun
I miss you like a Runner miss his Run
I miss you like a Sinner miss Redemption
I miss you like a Narcissist - Attention

I miss you like Insomniac his Sleep
I miss you like a Domina - her Whip
I miss you into Pain and Desperation
I miss you into Spasm and Starvation.

I miss You so.

Locked Within

On a hypocritic loom
You are weaving lies with thread...
Are you making shroud for me
Or a blanket for yourself?

Don't weave my hands in it -
I will bite them off
Don't weave my hair in it -
I will pull it off

Don't encase my shadow in
Whatever cell you're building -
I'll rend my shadow from me
And the walls will be breaking.

Don't kick my locked within door
And threaten me with racking...
Go on, break me for the breaking -
You can't take me by the taking.

To Have and Not To Have

Happiness - of light and glass union -
I caress it with my knees
Like for a bitter Communion
I reach with my fingers for it.

But with no answer was left I -
My right hand got lost in the dark
And only the deafening Silence
Gnawed on my brain with no spark.

"To have, to have not, to wait"
Like Orphans in my consciousness cried
Words that someone had mumbled
Like an improper Remark.

Dancing Like a Nestinar   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nestinarstvo  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMSxoPzl0r0

Dancing over living Coals
Dancing like to burn my Soul
Every step is Death-defiance
Every step is Life-aliance

Every step is bittersweet
Like a mountain Air crisp
Like a Knife is deeply binding
Like a new start is exciting

Dancing over ashes burning
Every turn inside is turning
Every bend is wildly bent
Every breath is dearly spent

Dancing every living Day
As to push away Decay
Dancing dancing like in Trance
Life's so ephemeral Dance

Dance as ancient as Life is
And as known as it's beat
Dance more strong than witches brew
I am Dancing over You.

Run!

Run against Time against Space
Run against Thunder and Rain
Run against Pain
Run against Wind against Sun
Against all of it, Run!

Run against it when it's falling on you
Run against it when it is swallowing you
Run against it when you know it's not going away
Run against it when you know it is here to stay.

Run to the ground, in dust and it torrent and years
Run when you know it's in vain and it won't disappear
Run against it in abandon in ashes and smoke
Run until all is in Ramble and you in Amok.
Run!
