Chicken pills and hundred dollar bills

The pursuit of material gain

Is going to kill you


You'll die and go to heaven

You'll die and finally have rest



is what made it happen


Is what did you in


Chicken pills and hundred dollar bills

The pursuit of material gain

Is going to kill you


Heart attack


It wasn't from fat

It was from fear

Fear of being broke


Forty-five years then you’ll retire


Do something different

Make something new

Get all the money

I never said it was bad


How does your soul feel


When was the last time


Touched you

Can you finally

Throw away your heart


Chicken pills and hundred dollar bills

The pursuit of material gain

Has killed you

A poet is more than a master of words

But a weaver of the meaning behind them


A poet understands the power that the sounds and syllables holds

when spoken


A poet understands the effect that the letter and line possesses

When read


Casting spells upon the psyche

Penetrating directly to the targeted core


A poet does not write to or for an audience

A poet does not speak to entertain


A poet's purpose is the soul

A poet's goal is the mind


To communicate on a level where physicality must be abandoned and your mind and soul must ascend


A poet is more than a fiery voice speaking of injustice

 more than a tender pen lamenting on lost love


A poet sculpts the very air their body's breaths into art

For generations long after they are gone to rejoice over


 to scoff at


A poet is a being that is

For a time

Tethered to flesh

Tethered to this world


Sent here to connect us to

Things higher than the feeble ponderings of mans mortal mind


Sent here to make us feel

Things more deeply

More intensely

than the fickle mass of flesh men call a heart


A poet speaks for the spirit's ear to hear

A poet writes for the soul's eye to see


A poet is a wielder of a sacred art that is more than any of its



Or tricks can clearly express 


A poet is nothing more than a servant to the gift given to them and its giver


Their duty

to commune in the realm

Inside of thought

Inside of feeling

And take you on a voyage

Salt and Slugs


You rail against



It is proper to have a stand

It is proper to know where


Do you understand why


Its the difference between

Blind devotion


Grounded faith


You don't have to explain it to me

Nor should you anyone

You do

Or at least

You should understand it

For self


Why do you believe


If you can't answer that


Look in the mirror

Stop standing on it

What I want

Is what I give


What I have

Is what I offer


What I expect

Is what your actions prove

I see you


Trying to be different

Trying to have different thoughts

Trying to have different talks


You go so far as to change the shoes on your feet to something unbearable


It will change your walk


You learn the ways of a far off land

Not understanding

Or questioning

Your own


Joining the most minuscule group

Rejecting the masses

Without comprehension of



You enlighten yourself with

The way

And that is good

While blinding yourself to sense and reason

Basic fairness and equality that

Your way



You say its



I'm surprised

No one ever told you

There is nothing


As unique

As you

I said too much



There are times when I want to cry

But the tears wont come out


It hurts is so much

The pain is so bad

It steals from me

It leaves no room for them


There are times when the tears start


Infront of the wrong people

In the wrong places

they wont stop



A few years ago

They flowed like a river

breaking its banks


I couldn’t stop


They wouldn’t obey


I'm stronger now
