waste not want not memorandum
in tandem with a knack
for not holding back at random
scattershot griot
electric feel in the chamber
to seal the deal
room in this tomb for a visitor
latent inhibitor of nobody in particular
call me a tripwire that's making an impact
even if i happen to misfire
flows like glancing blows i suppose
better than standing out of range
where nothing is landing
moment of clarity
from punch drunk infatuation so candid
that guard loses out to gravity
sacrificial lamb out of my anatomy
rapid decay
dust from the DNA
action for ashes with no delay
float in perpetual motion
there is an ocean of possibility for the woken
taking a sleepwalk off the deep end
to transcend the limits of the pen
or the shape i'm in
something akin to the soul
now overexposed to a change of venue
deconstructed then discontinued...

an ordinary man that manhandles
both ends of the candle while lit
as i keep stepping into the darkness
of my pitch black archetypes
manifested out of carbonite
for the collector
meddle detector that easily
identifies the uninvited
attempting to infiltrate the enlightened
not that evolution is impossible
cost benefit of that tilt shift is nominal
in terms of the long run
the marathon man on one for the ages
rattling the cages
working through the stages of grief
in the search for some sort of relief
like subliminal group therapy
all of you are helping me
the way i'm giving you my everything
and i guarantee it means just that
talk about impact synergy
taking back the term Dragon Energy
like gentrification
positive spin for the win
victorious and vanglorious in equal measure
serving up a suture for a future victim
letting out the antidote like verbal venom
for some thinning of the competition
mental inhibition for a great depression
the contestants for endgames
everyday i write the book
so taking a look at it is automatic
it's the living revision in the flesh
or a close approximation
modern Aristotle with the burden
of a daily occupation in tow
staring out the window
with so much longing that denial is clearly wronging
to base nature
six degrees of erasure
meet your maker
and become aware of the preferred nomenclature
worker with a working title pseudonym
suitable for application
down to the rudiments
