Shed Some Light

Purple sprite
I’m higher than that kite
Those colours so bright
I’m like a vamp
In the day light
Chilled so right
With my sprite
And my codeine spike
A treat on my trip
To the planet
Fifth from the right
In slow motion
I lift and take flight
Until that bright light
I’m like a zombie
With stage fright
A deer caught
In the headlights
Drifting light
No liss to fight
I float on by
On my trip
Through the night
That light is my kryptonite

Lost in a daze
And at such a height
Youthful adolescence
So stripped of my rights
With no rhythm
And my swag
Now not so tight
My teeth so brittle
But I sips alright
Beady red eyes
Nervous twitching
And my lips so white
My stool so hard
Coz my colon
Is dead locked on strike
I need to get off
From this clinical height
Medicated money trail
With a pharmaceutical hype
The twisted tricks
Of the lost and the dammed
Those trapped in the darkness
So void of the light

Auburn Light

Auburn Light prose poem

Auburn love walked bowed legs XCII years…mountain highs-valley lows, bus routes to homes of the white affluent, scrubbing dirty mosaic tiles, shadowed by stale late night celebrations of new deals… our raw deal. Auburn love walked bowed legs XCII years…Daddy’s
