“Out-Of-Format: But I Got An ‘In’ With The Boss”

(March 27, 2019)

let the world fall away

slip past over close’-eyes

heads ‘held’ together

love’s magic magnetic kiss

not-even-together-lips

our half-sentenced paragraphs

build on each other

provoking eye-laughs

love’s magnetic magic kiss

sometimes pass together each

half-caress hot cheeks

eloquent beyond mere words

look into your mirror-eyes

whose small helpful lies melt wings

join their way on ‘lectric winds

I look past you right through me

And now for something – for those new to Yasmin Khan (Yaskhan) completely different…and not! Whooppee!!!

  • Their hearts seem motionless
  • Blood gnaws at the veins
  • A wanton greed
  • Emotions like a hysterical fix
  • Pumping a syringe into the larynx
  • Shouting hoarse
  • A madness for money and power
  • Dying and , buried without.
  • Chartering people through promises
  • Like old diseases revisited
  • Unused antidote for poison stored in weed rolls
  • Like IVs looking for veins
  • A wounded society but never knowing it’s wound
  • A circus of lions, tigers performing
  • To an audience of wolves .

    Singing the blues

    On second read: (which not impels to go grab the Zoolon which inspired this), I must take minor issue with the last line…or at least hope ’twas more the poet’s artifice than the simple statement of fact: ‘it’s only poetry which gives me delight’ has to be a recapitulation of George’s basic theme. You who sew delights like daffodil petals windblown with your thrown lip-to-fingertip kiss give delights so true such a statement must be artifice entire. Like you wrote: “The lights never go out…

    Thank you , George, The Lord Of Music and fabulous lyrics.

  • Broken -hearted people
  • Shelter tears in their eyes
  • Living in this world
  • With smiling faces to disguise
  • Pain is like flying with a broken wing
  • Swaying like a leaf in the wind
  • Life can just blow your mind
  • Feeling brain dead, smiles no more shined
  • Words don’t come easy
  • Bottled up, they burst like crazy
  • A wrong word here, a wrong word there
  • Yesterday, today, tomorrow, I despair
  • I need a place to hide, far away
  • Where I don’t feel the need to talk or say
  • Finding my sad song, I’ll sing the blues
  • Finish my crying, I cut my heartstrings loose
  • No matter what, the sun still shines
  • The moon comes out, the stars enshrine
  • The lights never go out, come day or night
  • It’s only poetry that…
