Welcome to Deliverance

Kasaan, Alaska.  Why does it exist?

I recall the words…

Near Ernest Sound, Eastern Passage and

Zimovia Strait

When an eagle comes, south wind on its way

Whooshed through the yellow cypress

See Caulder Mountain for the first time

Shotguns and cricks

In the remote wilderness

That’s how this place is…

Fucked up, doped up

Moonshine, fifteen dollars a quart jar

Or if you prefer, a slow release opioid…

– I don’t like downers, I never have

Garbage cans, small dogs, and kids

All blowing around

Out here

Hillbilly youth, beauteous boy

Harassed and was forced to strip naked

But couldn’t escape and was raped…

Then left home

A trip into the unknown

Lines, wires, cables and chokers

Riggin rats and riggin slingers

How does a truck driver dress

In this country?

Caulk boots

A logging accident…what lies ahead

For this broken down cripple




Temple of the mind, a thousand fantasies lie rotting

This is how it is

As if my madness alone without me

In loving memory

Warned by a raven in the densest growth

Concert of Angels, tell me what you know

Plants in the Rainforest, limited sunlight

Fresh air all closed again, feeding on itself

Colors of the rainbow, streaming light

It’s too dangerous to wait until night

It doesn’t seem to be real somehow, serious and silent

Such a different time flow, black is the violet

Demon Flowers

On a summer’s day

Deep glow and the seaweed bending

Lit up her emerald eyes

A pentagon with a star inside


On summers day

Saw the garden as a tapestry

Everything changes – distorts

Reflected light has different colors


Living in the flowers nectar

Cherry and Magnolia

Entities from another dimension

No words.  Looking upward


Such vivid illumination

Computer simulated

A sliver of a window

The comedy is…ended

Battle of Deception

– I control you.

(You control me)

– I control you.

(You own me)

– I control you.


You have our roles reversed


Self-aware and alive

Commuters running for their lives

Subtle clues, tension mounting

Classified.  Can’t you tell me?

Rising up.  Killer Droid

Queued overnight in the lab

Autonomous Terminator to fight our wars

No rivals in the universe

Remote control armies,  mortal combat

Select who to kill and don’t regret it

Soon they’ll want to rule the world

Where there used to be green fields…


– Why do you believe you are a robot?
(I do not)

– But why won’t you say you are a robot?

 (I am not)

– What is your name?

Half the sky

Pet shop man  – whatshisface

 will never mellow out.  Ever

Dark roast.  Supersize

Summer noise

People, people, people

Herd of men

Pet shop man, it’s not your fault…


So no doubt

you’ll never mellow out

Shut ur mouth  n sit

Tragically limited

Canine warrior.  Price of a dog

Crack in the brick.  Poker chip

Insight into your own behavior

And the shadow of a cloud

doesn’t care
