battles fought above and below

all there is to life
is loving slow
and living without sin
from alpha to the end
only then shall we begin to fly
upon eagles wings
astral minstrels cry
while crooning soulful lullabies
to the moon and angels up on high
Ephemeral chariots
cross emerald skies by day
like judas escariot's sire
was betrayed in every way
by base desire and the denial
of a liar who walked with feet of clay

my soul has grown deep
like a river
langston said
ethiopia cried out
we must give unto the dead
not with a whisper but with a shout
without doubt
ancestral souls fine-tune genetic goals
while double dutch b-girls
skip lifetimes in one trip
commit high crimes tight-lipped
demonic phonics rap like stetsasonic
bombastical fantastical beats freak
like mystikal out on the street

feral crackheads lie
in search of the next high
flying by on bat-wings 
drenched by the stench of corruption 
lynched by the mention of destruction
lust and pride take a dusty ride
through death valley
and dark urban alleys
a baby's wail signals travails
wafting upon the night's breeze like
seeds of death and disease that
freeze the leaves of skeletal trees
stilling breath and
slumber's ease

on the other side of light
wonder marks the sight of
brighter days and mighty waves
in a towering fury of utter purity
all-encompassing love
accompanies the dove
rising ever above heaven's gate
tupac told us it was too late
to try to change the hand of fate
no slate is clean of mortal sins
nor are we free of thoughtless friends
the heart senses trends
we can't begin to hear or see
nor can we pretend that we are free

little things matter most
but like embittered ghosts we
refuse to toast life
the sweet moments without strife
the sight of a child's
wide-eyed smile
the delight of living without denial
trials and tribulations
face our nations
stationed on the brink of disaster
the master calls and faster we ride
through torturous hell we slide
losing sight of the real so
precious moments we must steal
from alpha to the end

only with ourselves must we contend

Indeed it has and this poem is the proof, deeply distrubing and powerful, words that inspire us to deal with ourselves.

Oh, oh, oh...Mr. Saxman...
There is a combo here that outstrips a fine-tuned jazz group.
I actually read this out loud, feeling the rythym and beat of
the street, the jungle, the dark interior rooms, etc.
It is a tiger of a piece, Mark!

This poem "macrocOsmosis" is a piece for an academic dissection. It is food for the soul and work for the mind.

As an enjoyable and instructing reading, "macrocOsmosis" flows.

Happy Healthy Day, Poet!

Thank You.
