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

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.

(No) 

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?

Pieces of my heart

 

Stage performer, drama zombie

One leap and I’m over you

Quite strikingly

Half-past three

What is the image of God?

Don’t know what to fear

Ice root beer

Do I care what shape the wine glass is?

Freaks on the dance floor

Blunt as brute force

Both after and before

Dancing the Tango

With an Americano

Cross over into the unknown

Powerful figure, seething impulses

Everybody’s looking for love
