Disappearing

Fading memories

That’s where we lived

Loss only counts in ones

Lingering is all hope does

It toys with belief

It ignores possibilities

Somehow we end up here

No-one did anything to get here

Which is how everything happens

A ghost of yesterday

Disappearing into tomorrow

Awkward Dream

I pull into the drug store parking lot. The drab brick building with giant windows far to high up to actually see in or out of. I notice a few brief and tan snakes. Then a few more. Behind the building the sea had risen into the edge ood the parking area. Upon its muddy waters ride more snakes.

I marvel at the sole figure outside. He is picking up said snakes by the head and throwing them back out to sea. His dedication to the cause far outweighing the results.

The sky rather overcast helps darken the scene of these legless beasts arriving upon these shores. I fancy the place of such large gatherings of snakes in tropical places. A lush white sand, being lapped by turquoise waters. Maybe a nice Pineapple Sangria in my hand.

Then it hits me, the guy is Scott! Which means nothing to me.

Then the alarm awakens me.

What an awkward dream.

My life runs like a rapid sequence of actual events. I sit offscreen. My escapist persona drinking in neurochemical beasts of so called freedom. I search for that keyhole but the bloom of untoward amaryllis is the only material witness.

Pineapple Sangria

I have entered my mad scientist phase once more. It’s ok. I’m have a chemistry background & I like to drink.

So i find a Gallo Pineapple wine (a blend with favoring). It being tropical drink night, well what does one do? Find pineapple juice, rum & some kind of juice…and play.

Sangria is wine with sweetness and alcohol. Playing with a white wine means lighter alcohol. Rum, flavored or unflavored, it is the prefect choice.

Cherry Brandy had a great mild taste to complement the pineapple. I had a Dole Orange Strawberry Banana drink to use. Banana was flavor I needed. Orange would have worked, as a Triple Sec liquor would add same orange tone. But we want at least 2 distinct flavors to give full flavor. Tasting alcohol is not the goal here. So we honey.

So what do I have here. For 2 large wine glasses the recipe follows:

Take a shaker

Add 2 shots of rum

1 shot of cherry brandy

2 oz pineapple juice

2 oz of Orange Strawberry Orange

1/2 tablespoon of honey

Shake these till they foam.

Take wine glasses fill 1/3 with crushed ice & pour wine to level of ice. Add the mix from the shaker. Enjoy.

Sunday Whirl – Not the Right Surprise

“Wait!” An animated voice like part of a loud laugh.

I check the Eagle’s Crawl bar for whom the drunk queen checking me out could be.

My heart thinks I have won some attention. But I realize this has become a family place. And there she is a barmaid waving me down.

Infected

A bead of sweat

A pulse just a bit raised

I hide my symptoms

The look over the shoulder

The constant feeling of missing

I can not shake them

My eyes rip apart scenery

I’m searching but unaware

My condition grows dire

My heart now beats fast

The sweat draws friends

Still I can not see it

How you infected me

Tending Your Fires

I have watched you burn the house

Your fire cursing more than darkness

Living in fantasy can corrode the soul

Particularly when they aren’t yours

Even worse when they are orphans

We can not hold the whole world

Nor make the Sun bend to us alone

Sharing is the breath of nature

Purpose of hope is to feed the being

Not a bug meant to be smashed

Right is not a birthright or measure

The world has been grey shades

Light and darkness playing together

Aggression is poison we drink

Hostility, sulfurous smoke choking us

Envy, blinding oneself with wants

Burning down my world means zilch

Yours is still empty and ice filled

SGrab your lighter, your bills of need

As the flames get higher and higher

what about you do you ever see

Or still curse your darkness
