UNDERGROUND VOICES: POETRY - 07/2004

S.A. GRIFFIN

god, a night light in eternity

there from the
beginning
at last
the tease of
infinity
grins


Everything Is All Right
In Time
Even Death


100 miles per hour to nowhere
point blank verse
pain heaped upon pain
thru addiction
or just simply being
available
to the process

the march & mulch of war

burgers & fries
obsessive sex
the opiates of
religion

whatever it is
it will get us all
in the end

pick your poison well
live for it

blossom & burn
inside the sacred unfolding of the
laughing rose

even the sun will lose
its hair & go blind
