Poem


      UNTITLED

      he's a dictionary masturbator
      his words come hot and fast
      his mind at half-mast
      he steps up to the podium
      he speaks
      they listen
      he doesn't
      he dispenses his wisdom
      like a doctor's prescription
      waiting on the arrival of god
      for vindication
      his beliefs as thin as a wafer

      he's a two fisted gun toting
      disciple of his own making
      he's the master of OM
      a stroker of Mantra
      sending forth a bouquet of words
      no one but he can understand
      wanting to leave the audience
      like a bitch in heat
      mind bending words stretching
      tight like a noose worn around
      the neck of a condemned man
