AMERICANCUCKOO I
A Primitive Tri-Textual Journey
(1988-1993)
 
001-004
 
on this new years day
slivers of sunlight showing
a tunnels near end
 
answers questioned no more
as righteousnesse leads to loss
 
moving time permits
a change while standing still sane
listening...a voice
 
answering while questioning
my right(s) as a first born...child
 
dearest Father high
within i turn to You...Friend
calling forth Your gift
 
questioning Ah answering
is the right of living sons
 
welcome Ganjitsu
what shall you bring this mid-man
sharing the return...(?)
 
090
 
through her now closed eyes
still beauty becomes a gift
denied though...to me
 
183
 
neoku's moment
that subtle awakening
one can only smile

...on...campus...co-eds...
move...like...worker...ants...hoarding
...knowledge...for...winter

grim...the reaper...waits
there in a shadow named death
i smile working here

AMERICANCUCKOO II
With Tongue In Beak
 
(1994-1999)
 
963*
there is a coldnesse
near the souls of men who steal
 love from children lost
 
who have fled from far houses
which never were phoned as home
 
where ab-u-sive-ness
reflected lives through turmoil
and joy disappeared
 
on long trains of guilt unknown
brought about by fear and dread
 
of someone's something
hidden to sight in nightsflight
as dreams went awry
 
where nightmares became a norm
and afterschool was deathspool
 
yes...there is coldness
near the souls of men who stole
love from children lost
 
* Having been asked "...where do these moments originate?"  I can only respond with...
The moments about which I write come from within in response to those things which
precipitate their arrival.    Re 963...it came about in an immediate  response to a pedaphilia story presented on a local evening news program..   I.E., having been molested as a child
I believe a part of me was stolen by that which had no love for his or her self.
Ergo, it took me many years to trust and begin to love...again.
I thank God everyday for His healing.
