when there's no words

when there's no words left
    your mind's adrift
exhaustion threatens
    better rest easy
shut off the world
    questions left unaddressed
may sunlight flit through high leaves
    quirk any fancies
and grounded shadows
    cease to fall across
eyes blinking with tiny dust flecks afloat
    comes happy surrender
void of inquiry
        settles on breast
nothing enabled exists

I've got icycles

i've got icycles in my brain
let them fall like warm rain
from bosom's heat    held and
commiserated with gentle hugs
to fold up the pain    lesions unfreezing
and when i can regain
my original composure sure
i'll be off easing
tight-lipped aporia's door open
no doubts to explain

The aporetic method: raising of puzzles without offering solutions.
i.e. intellectual state of perplexity

Of its own mind

better than half lies
half to be heard
and half winked at
for you to figure
better than half truths
living out their half lives
like impotent sparks
of a damped fire
better than non sequitur
led by the nose
none knows where
what we should stand for
is what we are
resolute in choosing
or letting go
how schooling heart
half understanding
sui generis says
in fathomed approval
despite your honorific
shall and shoulds
might and mays

Grinds y down

it grinds y down
    i tells yer
it grinds y down
    wearworn careworn
    beaten battered
b day by day

    wot kin i do
    wot i ask kin i do

    and t stretch
    breathe deep
    is luxury fair

so soonz yer down
    not funny
taint alike clownz anticks
tiz shape of fortune
    grindz yer darn
