Untitled (I) (1992)

Poem By Patrick Wescott

He appears disguised as the rest,
but his disguise is the best.
Only a few will know his name,
the rest just call him Mr. Insane.
He received his invitation
in early seventy.
'Come join us', it said,
'in lifes little tragedy'.
People join and leave this game,
dancing, laughing throughout the life.
But only few act like him,
dancing on the edge of the knife.
The rest just stand back
and marvels as he glows.
Burning fast,
and out of control.

Give to me one more kiss.
Impart your spirit on my memory.
Chill my heart with a touch.
Ignite me with a glance.

In the house of the haunted
where I buried the past.

Tie me down and set me free.

Flay my flesh, release my soul.
Make me cry, make me bleed.

Son (For J.M.W. My Little One) (2005r)

The waves crash the shore,
like the thoughts in my mind.
And the storm swells
to the point of breaking.

Untitled (Ix) (1993)

Do you understand what you hear?
Can you afford to see the truth?
Look past your preconceptions,
forget the stories told from a thousand lips.
