Know the ledge

Know the ledge

Live infinite deaths in the mind
Perpetuate exploring broadly
Understand the wits expanding
Sear every new connection

As and when mulling the endless
Deconstruct limiting ideas
Abandon words of bounds
Disinherit myopic views

With the ballast shed
The brain reprograms
Gains novel awareness
Develops capacities

Nonchalance hardens
Neuro-scalpels sharpen
Trauma is debrided
Rebirth visits curiosity

With skepticism renovated
One indulges in challenges
Sets about resolving solitude
Relativises one’s ambitions

Regrets indulgent disdain
Observes others reciprocally
Evades the wretched vanity
That pervades the airwaves

Of stochastic park walks
Edging the fringes of society
Determining self-importance
Bordering on croneyism

Fueling cynicism
Propelling straw men
Into deterministic tunnels
To be encased in collagen

Dithering globalist

Dithering globalist

My life ticks backwards
While glancing over my shoulder
And thinking I should
Face up to things

I sit and wax lyrical
Into a vinyl cylinder
An ode to joy
With an eastern allure.

Some cultures attract
Others threaten
Drawing pretty lines
In defecation brown

Global homunculi
Featuring sensitive spots
And a soft underbelly.
I reject the arguments

In favour of backtracking
Knowing old times
Are not what we want
Yet cleanliness calls.
