A Separatist State of Mind

May 19, 2010

This poem was featured yesterday on Censored Poets! This is one of the first poems that began my interest in shadow work. I will be posting another poem later today about the tragedies of the drug war (which will be the first half of another two paragraph prose poem like the ones I’ve been posting). I’d love to hear your comments. Thanks for reading!

A Separatist State Of Mind

A Separatist state of mind
he drinks in the day
drifting from place to place
without sense of time
fountain of youth with lime,
A Separatist state of mind
he rises with the moon
sunlight the demon’s tomb
lurks in shadowed shrines
chasms dawn never finds,
A Separatist state of mind
with mistress train wreck
eye him like a suspect
sour and impolite
strung out under neon lights,
A Separatist state of mind
orders usual brew
the devil wants his due
greeting is concise
plesantries won’t suffice,
A Separatist state of mind
nectar cigarette
free will tinged in the scent
strength measured in pints
ball and chain left behind,
A Separatist state of mind
burdens asphyxiate
wise men quick to make haste
cautious to confide
misery/company on hyde,
A Separatist state of mind
rebel’s guitar pick
structure is eighty-sixed
robbing convention blind
sworn against the daily grind,
A Separatist state of mind
potent like vermouth
always ask for the proof
snake’s eyes open wide
american dreamers lied,
A Separatist state of mind
moored in lonely shores
damned forever to war
route contra the tide
assailant to humankind,
A Separatist state of mind
the man is an island
risen from submersion
corrosive waves subside
indifferent to the tide,
A Separatist state of mind
fallacious glass ghost
bewitching mirage toast
gluttony in disguise
insatiable vacant eyes,
A Separatist state of mind
stoops to any device
slave destitute to vice
impending his demise
burning tequila sunrise.
