Without information
my imagination tends toward
the overly dramatical
theatrical interpretation
of possible scenarios
from nursed rhymes
to psychologically scary prose
I've evolved a bit though
or maybe I've entertained
my share of ghosts
with things to say
songs to play
ravens with quotes
a poor Poe
a hollow man
a platform
and it's fan
a puppet man
another's avatar
an encore
of muses and musicians
gone before
notes I play 
my pen as instrument
or am I the played
my heart the reid
my thoughts the beats
ands and ums
sometimes to walk on feet
stress my urban
accentual alliterations
alluding to my illusions
propheting from my own delusions
ambiguous ballads
about women who prefer salads
making new scars 
if they can't play
my heart's harp
rambling enjambments
ghost storied encampments
hired actors in my wordplay
on this one mid autumn day
in late october
sometimes I write to you
like a goddess monster
as if you could hear my prayers
it doesn't hurt the way it used to
I've even cried a grateful tear or two
for a fairy tale in the middle
of a life now a little less ordinary
her worst chapter
my best seller
with a six dollar bottle of wine
after I write 
every thing feels fine again
fresh oxygen
brisk walks on frost
creating a better man
who is some days my only fan
others the only one I want
dear reader
part of me only exists
in my dialogues with you
maybe at the same time
that is where I am most true
and if I could steal a line
from a friend of mine
I'm no superman
my cape is my caper
in reality I'm
better on paper.

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
