Gray Matters


Parallel souls surface.

Tepid, rusty oven doors…critical, tired and old.

Again, the scattering of orphans…nothing but out dated candy for the eye.

Disfigured misfits falling from the austere sky.

Harvested crusted cuticles,

just surrogates from the wrong side of the tracks.

There is a sisterhood to what lies beyond the facts.

Broken Down Lexus

Regular size, unscented, fantastical.

Sexuality, plus.

Condemnation verses enlightenment.

A box full of multi sized self contained stagnation.

Harems of midgets dancing to bubble gum rock.

The plight of the politically correct…

A bus of friendly ogres to tall for the short bus.

Everyone who isn’t anyone…

disrobe your claim.

Leave your adornments to the van of the vain.

Soul train send the norm right back to once it came.

Faux fur furriers for the mundane.

‘You cannot capture me.  I am only a photo for free.

Prepare the subject matter, offer fashion tips to the mad hatters!’

The really grotesque harbor freewill as though it were plain.

A real freak eats scrambled stars for breakfast.

A real freak drinks monochrome shakes in a broken down Lexus.

Carnival of Eccentricity

carnival 1


Shagged, dragged,

tar and feathered.

Talking myself into a jail.

Bad mouthing bail.

carnival 2

The king and I…perhaps not.


Queen of perverse heart.

Heroine in stolen shopping carts.




Though I dwell in the house of anonymity,

there is no universal fit for me.

Solo, I may seem.

However, a band of jokers disperse like a globe trotting team.

Together, searching the forest for the trees.

We pledge allegiance to a freaky university.

Nothing namesake,

non pedigree,

anti synchronicity.

carnival 3

Part and parcel,

full fledged,

member of the carnival crew.

Coming to a soapbox…near you.

Hippie, Hippie, Shake

abby hoffman

Freak: a person who is strange or different. A term of derision, typically used to dismiss someone outside of one’s social clique. Also used as a playful tease.

“When we heard about the hippies, the barely more than boys and girls who decided to try something different… we laughed at them. We condemned them, our children, for seeking a different future. We hated them for their flowers, for their love, and for their unmistakable rejection of every hideous, mistaken compromise that we had made throughout our hollow, money-bitten, frightened, adult lives.”
Author: June Jordan

It is unfortunate that those who follow a certain pattern of behavior, particularly, millennials, do not grasp the true meaning of Hippie Freak.

Just the other day, while working as a Bernie lead during the New Hampshire primary…I politely, and with honor in mind, referred to a new found friend as…

Hippie Freak.

Course, that was taken out of context.

Stand proud young man, wake confident, young women,  to be considered a modern day,

unique, inquisitive and free spirit.  It is nothing more than an old hippies of way of saying,

‘Your shit is pretty cool.  Keep the peace!’

Highly Inappropriate

These tricks of the heart…

no different from the fine lines of winter’s turbulent season.

and, what of,

the squalls of change that come and go for no reason.

The battle will rage on with seasons influx…

highly inappropriate 2lust for the infinite state of conformity’s trust.

Though, far off,

extreme wooden sanctum…

beat the savage beat of a different drum.

A rare certain ambiguous solace can fall from stormy skies.

A distinct weathered pattern…

relinquished onto a particular kind.

“Boredom doesn’t come from lack of activities but rather from your own limitations and ideas of fun. Appropriate behavior, normalcy and perfection is what you make of it. But just in case you’re bored with perfect, come over to the dark side. Us circus freaks know a thing or two about thorough entertainment.”
