Celeste Sign Post Conspiracy


Sign Post Conspiracy

From rule by decent
To those expediated as expendable
In the eleventh hour, promises emerge
The giver of all things makes good
Over and over again we are held by this belief
And as all is repeated
We await for as normal becomes

Whether as serpent
Whether as ignorant
Everything is under control
In conspiracy
In cannibalism
In capitalism
We gather in order and rank

Underneath, traditions perpetuate
Inspirations bubble and pop
Popular legends are repurposed
Symbols are redrawn
Gods and superheroes are mashed
Massacres are forgotten
Eventually, everything is explained away
As conspiracy justify the void within self

Nightcliff Consumed



The mind-forged manacles I hear
Far from it
This and forever more
Assumptions made in important ways
Systems of control
The devouring function of capitalism
A loss of self to enable ownership
Someone's loss for someone's gain

(Tribute to William Blake)

Glass Ceiling Panoptic

I am
I am unreachable
And yet
Here I am

You know I am
Watching you
But you cannot see me
Watching you

I am experimental
I am power
A symbol
Of discipline
Of harmony

I am practical
I am monumental
I am prosperity
I am achievement
You hear only one story
My story

Glass Ceiling See Me


You Know
I am
Watching you
But
You cannot see me
Watching you

Moon Tree


Get out of my way said the car to the pedestrian
You are crossing my road
The one I pay taxes for
Next time I'll run you down

The trees and the moon said nothing
They have seen it all before

Night Wall


Yes I see you
And you see me
Looking up at you

Our shared curse
In the games we play
Together in chain
The many in us
And the one in you

Shop Wall


When I don't think, is it a problem?
Does it matter when the moon doesn't think?
We built a wall across China
Only for a saboteur to let them in
Then to realize that it was the wall that required our protection
Protection from ourselves
Build then protect
Just like God

The Deep Dive


I trusted someone I should have feared
In reputation and in authority
The person I was
The person I became

Enter the trap fearlessly
Exit meekly

Hold the line
Scared 
Hidden by silence
Slain 
Without salvation
Pitied

So many

Locked Sign


What was I thinking
When I tried to break through
The one dimension of myself
The one I actually knew

Owl



My Holy Ghost is an owl
She watches over me
To prey on my fear

Meme Rapid Creek Moon


The path of convenience
Stop looking down
And in that moment
I looked up

Explain away
And
Reflect in the glow of a genius
To
See as you have never seen before
Describe the guilt
To ask the big questions

I have an idea
But where do I start
Think it
Start it
What's it called
Doing business

We live in hope
But
We don't know
So we live in hope
Of
Knowing the truth
