Kenneth has a taste for abstract/prose poetry as well as the comical side of life. 23-years of writing for a newspaper has served him well.
I laugh at darkness, his vile and sight
I vanish through foggy wishes from a child's scary night
I sing when vultures black soar to spy corpse alive
I wink at frogs, bats, and cats while sleeping in a web
Bees buzz amidst his confused brow
Priests see me in a glimpse then sweat a bow
An organ sings one hymn to me fading away
As I seize their pleasures of a thief and his day
Knives and nails with edges assail
His crowns fall swiftly to a beggar's Hell
Who softly walks, whines, and tries a kiss
I watch myself in truthful image shapened amiss
I be a serpent, a lioness, a crow
I be a thought, a vision, a ways to go
I wish to be a love, a dove, a river so wild
A cloud, proud and mother's tear so mild
I can't be tamed
I have no name
I seek where none can be
Try as you might you never can see
The lightning princess living in me
