Just a Glass of Burgundy

Just a glass of burgundy
A simple no frills charm
Just a cup of tea please
To initiate the calm

Nothing fancy or illicit
I want only the one
To signal changes coming
So my mind succumbs

Natural age old remedies
Soothing one's own nerves
Needn't be destructive but
Our just deserts.

-Kelly Voelker

illicit - forbidden by law, rules, or custom.
succumb - fail to resist (pressure, temptation, or some other negative force)
just deserts - that which is deserved

Just deserts vs. just desserts

The expression meaning that which is deserved was originally just deserts. The phrase is the last refuge of an obsolete meaning of desert—namely, something that is deserved or merited. But because most modern English speakers are unfamiliar with that old sense of desert, the phrase is often understandably written just desserts.
Using just desserts is not a serious error, and it is much more common than just deserts in 21st-century texts. Some people still consider it wrong, however. Whether to pay this any heed is for each of us to decide for ourselves.

Oxytocin Adoration Fantasy and June

"In Love!" she said
While focusing on
Some dramatic painful end

"In Love!' she said
While feeling low
Ugly and alone
A combination of
admiration dosed
With a hormone

Oxytocin, adoration
Fantasy and June
All combined to
Cauterize rational
Behaviors true

Conduct switched from intellect
To survival games so rough
Twisted into destiny
Concerned only with "Love"

-Kelly Voelker

oxytocin - a powerful hormone produced by the pituitary gland associated with feelings of love or attachment

The Design of the Impossible

The design of the impossible
Right in front of me
Cannot comprehend it
But yet there it be!

Rules and all their systems
Fit nicely in the brain
Reality and splendor
Leak outside of 3D chains

Anomalies of perfection
In certain circumstance
Show us instant glimpses
Past what we thought were chance.

-Kelly Voelker

comprehend - grasp mentally; understand.
Splendor - magnificent features or qualities
3D - three dimensional
anomalies - something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected

Dreams vs Doubt

For instance let it be shown
Forcefulness to ash
Never actually happens
Sincerity does last

Doubt and all its trappings
Foresee failures in
What was just an avenue
Towards what might have been

True and heartfelt wanting of
What you know is yours
Happens quick and painless
When you walk through open doors.

-Kelly Voelker

ash - the remains of something destroyed; ruins
trappings - the outward signs, features, or objects associated with a particular situation, role, or thing.

Be Who Thou Art

       Have you gotten farther?
       Have you gotten there?
       Are you a fulfilled man?
       Been playing it fair?
       Are you a liar?
       Are you a lout?
       Are you a victim?
       Are you left out?
       Reset to default
       Own your own heart
       Be not a slave then
       Be who thou art.

Profound Home Base of Now

Thoughts curve back towards past
Slowly back in time
Linger there for minutes
Decades through you'll climb

Thoughts leverage future
Over thoughts of past
Fulcrum of the present
Ensuring it will last

Reaching to the future
Only moments show
Complete pictures hidden
Mind can't fill the holes

Past is what you know
Future is line cast
Never knowing what you'll
Eventually catch

Return now quickly back here
Cast line wishes sow
Details clear and present in
Profound home base of now.

-Kelly Voelker

fulcrum - the point on which a lever rests or is supported and on which it pivots.
  • a thing that plays a central or essential role in an activity, event, or situation.

Early Gentle Morning

The gentle morning suggests
My senses slowly wake
A hollow song of mourning dove
The next sound softly waits

Truck tires in the distance
Howling down the road
Coffee's scent is barking
Refrigerator moans

The day is patient also
Waiting for the time
When I'll choose to enter
The choice is only mine.

-Kelly Voelker

Equations of Creation

The sap of spring
Is rising up from
Places we can't know
The warblers hunting insects
The finches seeds will sow

Surprises show up everywhere
Outcomes beat all odds
Let nature teach a thing or two
Before our acts would sour
Reason and intuition
Are foolish in this hour

Do not assume you foresee
Caring holds no weight
Equations of Creation
Advise you yield to fate.

-Kelly Voelker

Market Influenced Caution Brain

Brainwashed to placate
Brainwashed to stare
Brainwashed for deficits
Too brainwashed to share

Influenced by images
Repeated as code
Baited by careers which are
Programmed to explode

Convinced by others
What we should see
Everything compared
To what isn't free

Market comparison
To raise basic cost
Above where we're working
Past where we're caught

Cautioned to behave
Be safe and secure
Cautioned to intake
Poisons as cures

Directed to come back
A homing device
Instead of just striking out
For horizons more bright.

-Kelly Voelker

Slowly off the Edge

As bedtime seizes body down
One thought rolls slowly
Like a large water drop
On a dark blue shiny car hood
Rolling into other drops of thought
Joining others changing course
Slowly thought by thought
Without ability to control
Finding direction without sight
The shiny thoughts roll slowly
Off the edge of darkness' night.

-Kelly Voelker
