tasty bits

short and pithy tasty bits
exorbitant flavor with a subtle backbite
exquisitely rendered
to entice and bring in

exorbitant flavor with subtle bite
exquisitely rendered
tasty bits
to entice and bring in

for celebration, inauguartion, ceremony, praise a cronie, explain a gaffe, contain a laugh, decry oppression, make a suggestion

threading the needle to curtain the stage 
singing cherubs bounce and curtsy 
orating sage twinkle-eyed flirts, 
he touches his nose, wrinkles his toes 
calls to his wand's to and fro sewing 
all recite into song 
weaving their music along

Silver bracelet of Moonlight
shines in night's prism of serene
casting breath, luminescent desire
emboldened in reflection

There is nothingness enough in all of negation 
Be a thing, many things, all things, some things 
Be a source of action 
Be the essence of dissatisfaction 
Be the smiling taste of flies 
upon the tongue of lotus-wise old toad 
Be bliss in amazement 
of egoic reflection on all this 
Nothing is never ALL

Revolution comes when it is ready 
The spark that lights the fire can be seen oh so many times 
Only when the tinder is sufficiently arranged will the fire take hold 
It burns with clear fidelity to dramatic interlude, to the cry of an erupted moment 
After images, ash sparks in the twilight, take flight, swirl within echoed breeze 
Readiness, relative to the free winds of chaos 
Revolution is but a shared anthem, parts of anger and revenge, 
parts of reaching toward a new religion 
In the aftermath of chaos, 
what bright vision will sustain?
