A PEACE OF MY MIND: Poetry by @charliesheen

With the current media attention Charlie Sheen is getting right now, and his consistent displays of genius (only some pun intended), there’s only one way to describe the title of his poetry collection and Adam Rifkin’s illustration of the cover: WINNING.

There, I’ve said it, too.

Poem: WHOLE

“WHOLE”

A picture painted black. The faded image on an ancient map. The missing pieces of a puzzle split in halves. And we, whole, the key to a future untold. Bold as print. Reworded, rewritten and sent spinning into the darkness like cigarettes tossed into a night’s wind. Breathless but still sprinting with eager intent toward a light that came and went without notice. Visions set to auto focus that shift and blurr, blending fantasy with reality, concealing dreams deferred.

And she lay awake, counting teardrops like blessings she’s neglected to take. Mother of the earth, swollen-bellied and earth quaked. False teeth, fake smiles and matching hand shakes. Footsteps frozen in place. Consciousness crippled – replaced with the simple, stifling complacencies our ancestors faught to erase.

Raise your fist and fight. Raise your pens and write. The mind you save might be your own.

I am whole.
You are whole.
We are whole….. Yet alone!

Love & War

love is a battlefield: we draw conclusions, like weapons, and wage war against wayward hearts.

Haiku #69

sex and opiates:
the copious conundrum
of life, spiraling.

Haiku #633: THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHT

a dead man walking,
moving through life without light,
captured by the night.

Haiku #216

the corner-hugging,
star-struck, chasers of a knight
that dies come morning.

Haiku #710

a dead smiley face,
a laugh muted by chaos:
nightmares on repeat.
