Silent Enemy
In the small confines
of the tea cup of my soul
a quirky tempest swirls in
eerie mischievous scheming.
Overflowing small islands of good deads
and splashes the refection of unnamed stars
down in minuscule depths of narrowness.

Mind how you howl
trying to discover
pitfalls and pranks
of twisting paths of awakening
what do you not want
to surprise you
to sap your courage
at the small house of the heart.
What flaming darts that are launched
seeming to be thrown
out of the scope of your eyes
who is your silent enemy.

Why do i toil the broth of living
with a symbolic silver spoon--
with over fastidious knots of letters--
as the oceans seem to becoming smaller and smaller--
why not return to non divergent roadways
and earn your good citizen medal
and ignore all of the sparrows of your words
that flow up the stairs of the generous sky.
carrying there swift forms
beyond the libations of your intentions
Or all the crafty goldfish of serenity
that the tempest gives newborn waves
to swim through. . .
As a dark insidious teapot
whisper draconian steams
waits for your children in dead ends
in serpentine quandaries
beyond your competence
of pale white little houses....
