I wrote this short blurb when I was feeling kinda down
(which is generally all the time :smirk: )...

Where was I ?
on a vacant street with no name,
trying to fill my soul,
with it's own remains...

On a brighter note,
I've found inner peace,
it was right outside,
we were never destined to meet...

"no-mind un-thinks no-thought..."

And We All Fall Down

Floating down the doors of perception, what ones are open have now been locked
and replaced with light fixtures. This is the sea of the better man, brand-new,
ready, and willing. Automaton auto-monotonous buzzing like a gun from the water.
Rocks filled with moon dust fly like 2x4 boards of prey diving and clawing at
our eyes. Wormwood sheets of glass raining down below, falling out of sight out
of mines. Explode into the new you. Disfigured and real, walking right out of
the pages and in-between the absolute. Cutting in line to your death, Chinese
budging was never allowed. Out of place in a deadly race, laughing all the
while. Why did you take that ticket away from Johnny when Sally says
its right behind you? Why wait three days when three nights is more than enough.
Stuff your face with apples, poison and ripe for the picking. D?j? vu finds its
way into you, escape is provided with exit signs in colors of orange and green.
Lines left right left of your juxtaposition. Look up and face your pacemaker,
please distribute your magnifying glass lens on the T.V. dinner show tray.
Puppets kill and lick their wounds like no other, with strings attached. No one
means anything they cook in the complete balanced toaster over break-beatfast.
Even free jazz costs a penny more than loosing a nickel. When women open jars of
tears they say sickly poison in self-defense. How wondrous the site when
provided with a ninety-eight cent popcorn bucket filled with the salt of last
year?s thanksgiving dinner family. The only beast that clucks is the axe and a
chopping board. V8 bloodstained hand-me-down cellos play the world for what they
are. Roasting in its own spicy juices they come to board a sinking ship. Ugly
and rusted as it sinks into the holographic pornography we call discovery of a
new world. To love it, is to want it for your very own. To own it, is to wilt
the pedals of an everlasting beauty, un-recreational and abused.

Does this fit? Or by free form do you mean something else. I have quite a few poems written in the style above. I dunno though if it counts?

I'm fantastic
my words are like elastic
i wrap words abound nouns
stretch sentences into plastic
like em to the phatic
acro to the batic
like frictions produces heat
bad diction causes static
i break my rhymes into fractions and into particles
my articles precede my adjectives
i had to give a vowel away and i ain't got none left...

i'm at a loss for words

i must report this theft
cuz i'm not hardly even partly interested in your grammar
pull the rug, release the plug
snatch the film from out the camera

i go through phases
write my lines in phrases
put tropes around quotes
bust narratives out of cages

i beat wack poems
then stack cracked clones into concrete
riddle holes in syll--les
think up thoughts on the downbeat

the prose that i compose controls my foes and my flows
fuck your woes

Santa Claus ain't legal-- and he's around.

Viola, sing and I'll be your drum machine.
We're noise and experiment and always struggling to be
something like free.
Acoustic juxtaposition and rattle.
I'm a sine wave plus partials and harmonics
(physical noise)
We'll sing our bodies into being and remember what
Formlessness feels like. I need to leave.
I need to be.

There's a kind of silence more desireable than any grand ecstatic volume. Shift. Tongues and teeth claim momentum.

Sometimes silence seems so ridiculous and I can't help but laugh and shatter such barriers. Let's sing. Let's be sparrows or crows and disregard monotony. We'll scavenge experience from wastebings and never be afraid to collide with tommorrow. Weather separates indifference as I wait. You're travelling as I'm sitting. Patience can be thrilling.

You pressed the edge of your voice
Against my throat Nakedly trembling
Steadying only the tip
Steady while I clutched,
drew in,
severed and turned my back
How sheer and hinged a question
Like an oily red streak
From the lips of a whore I
Cry bastion to the wind
Of a poisoned gut, swirling angel cut songbox
flesh striped
hip ridden and left the curb.


the bent strum equaling only your will
Consider fathers broken love, touch
White lipped blue finger
nailed youth
Imagine if

Wanted, and fending
Chasing the denial of your own burning blood
Became a sunrise to the sightless
Thunder clapping on useless ears

Replace hungry thought
With so many pounds of fat
Stir in accolades given by only her (The Goddess)
Giant and pristine to new opened eyes
Juxtaposed by those who hold her form to
Hate and lecherous abuse in the halls, walls, and bathrooms
Of this modern life

Then speak you sympathetic painfilled Guilt ridden tone
wanting confessiton see
Red life make rivers in the corners of your ears Feel
chill touch paused heart waiting to pawn
inadequacies of assurance on me
back turned and quickly becoming
a Liar.

Sitting on my roof I Jitter and hesitate.
Waiting for salvation to come on his bike.
Minutes seem like hours, hours like days.
And in turn those days mere seconds.
Flash...Boom, My eyes turn to dust.
Living this lie is my only choice
I can't stop now,
for I've lost myself long ago.

Wandering through the woods
My mind an unsettling blizzard
Of feelings and emotions
Pouring through the spectrum
Meandering from one thought to the next
All my memories, one collective element
Searching for a purpose, a meaning, an answer
But who poses the question?
Is it me, or some external force?
Guiding me blindly through my waking life
Each minute, each hour, each day
Another scratch on the surface

This life isn?t mine
I don?t belong here
Is anyone watching
Does anyone care
The same story persists
Shifting with times and settings
The simplicity of it all
Almost makes me laugh
Who are these faces
And what do they want
The possibilities are endless
And the answer is pointless
When we all return to dust
Let our minds roam the emptiness
Without desire without worry
Until the end becomes the beginning

Have a Cigar, you're gonna go far
