The God in us. 
I saw God, not in a burning Bush 
But in the acts of evil, too much blood not enough vampires
Two men Killing each other and in between I saw God 
He smiled at me not for the good I have done 
But for the evil within I try to hide. 
I saw God not in the faces of men
A child burning alive and in the flames I saw God 
He spoke to me through the sounds of a wailing mother and a grieving father 
I saw God in the ashes of a burning society 
I saw God not in the kindness of men
A man seated beside a pavement dying of hunger
He showed me the true nature of noblemen 
I died not of disease but of hunger 
I came back not by miracle nor his grace but by survival 
I saw God not in nature but in darkness 
He said to follow him, he showed me the animosity that lies within 
He showed me the heaviest hearts and the darkest souls 
The loneliest of them all and most judgemental of all
But in the midst of all this I saw no one else but myself. ©Dennis Blue

That Frothy Brine by Eli Perez.
•
It’s 3 in the morning, a quarter past despair. I’ve
run into a corner once again. Cats have 9 lives, I’ve
got only one; an empty tank, a semi-loaded gun.
This is when I usually shine, when street grit rises
from the frothy brine. Though even a Glock’s got a
finite set of rounds, the last one in the chamber
might be mine. Let me wake and this be all a
dream. I promise, Lord, to love the morning sun.
But with a head full of dark clouds, all I want is to
scream; to hide and hope that someday I’ll be
found.

VERSIONE INTEGRALE: ⚫⚫⚫ "Caddi, per distrazione
D'un sogno, in un nuovo limbo
E imparai che nulla vale
Di ciò ch'è insegnato

E la poesia, anch'essa
Mia forma d'amor più vera
Si fece beffarda menzognera
Tra mani ruvide e avide
Del compianto che non volli
Mai ad alta voce, e che ottenni
In un giorno di pioggia e d'audacia,
Correndo, viva, verso un niente 
Mascherato da belle parole
E una manciata di ricordi scaduti.

Ma mentre cadevo m'accorsi
Del piacer di centrar le pozzanghere
Dell'innegabile eros dell'acqua gelida
Sul collant sottile e sulle mie cosce
Io che tutte le avevo evitate
Le mie pozzanghere sciagurate
Tutte, in un modo o nell'altro,
M'avevan seguita, passo per passo.

Perché son la bambina dei tuoi timori
E sono la donna adulta dei miei

Coi miei seni turgidi sott'al vestito corto
Il riso umido, una scultura di ghiaccio
- Che io sia dannata, se ho amato a casaccio
Volevo solo correre sotto la pioggia." ⚫⚫⚫ #lisapoetrl #lisapitrolo #poetry #poem #poems #poet #italianpoet #italianauthor #poesia #igpoetry #igpoets #igpoetscommunity #poetidiinstagram #communitypoeti #scritturacreativa #creativewriting #writing #writer #scrittura #scrittore #scrittrice #inedito #poesiacontemporanea #poesiaitaliana #poetic #poemporn #poetryporn #eros #erotic

~~~INSOMNIA ~~~

The curtains sway, the sheets are soft. As I toss and turn, I throw the blanket off and switch the fan on. Maybe now your scent would ebb away.

~~~ CHOICE ~~~
.
If you had to choose
between sun and moon
or the day and night
what would it be?
Between wind and rains
among sunrise and sunset
waves and the shore
the mountains and beaches
the sound of city and
the solace of country
whiskey on rocks and
the pint of beer
mint choco-chip ice-cream
and fresh strawberry froyo
a nip in air and 
sunny afternoons 
what would you choose?

Me? I chose love.

Crawling by Numbers by Eli Perez.
•
I can’t seem to get this dream right. Choked sleep
trying to ignite that swampy getaway that getting
high used to take me on. Built obsession into a
diamond-bit drilling machine; bored holes into the
fabric of things. Set a trapdoor in the sun for the
day when I make my great escape. Said “fuck you”
to fate, put too much on my plate, found out
everything was great so it’s all on me. Of why I’m
driving half asleep, pray not my soul to keep,
maybe I should give it away to someone who’d
make better use. Still dawn is on repeat, always
got shoes for my feet, that’s a hell of a lot more
than some might see even with their eyes closed.
Till death do me part, I’ll keep my thoughts close
to my heart, learn to shut my potty mouth, listen
more than I do shout until I find what it’s about or
die trying. In the meantime shut the light, blow the
candles kill the brightness. Give me clues on how
to fight this, or gift me sleep so I can find
someplace to hide in.

VERSIONE INTEGRALE:
"Ci sto provando,
Con la precarietà
Dei primi passi,
Curiosità tremante
E ambiguo pianto - Sto ricostruendo
Un'infanzia e le ore
Che nessuno mi disse
Di mettermi in tasca.

Ancora in tempo?
Mi guardi e sorridi.
Al collo hai una chiave
Che capovolge il mondo.

Milioni di soli
Ruotarono all'indietro
Quando scegliesti me
- e ancor mi sorprendo.

Che sia sempre stata io
Il mio più antico tormento?
Tu rispondi che alcuni di noi
Furon destinati al vento." ⚫⚫⚫ #lisapoetrl #lisapitrolo #poetry #poem #poems #poet #italianpoet #italianauthor #poesia #igpoetry #igpoets #igpoetscommunity #poetidiinstagram #communitypoeti #scritturacreativa #creativewriting #writing #writer #scrittura #scrittore #scrittrice #inedito #poesiacontemporanea #poesiaitaliana #poetic #poemporn #poetryporn #eros #erotic

Doubt in the Time of Clarity by Eli Perez.
•
If I were to speak/think with absolute clarity, be
genuine with just a smidgen of flash, no one would
understand me. I, of course, would know what I
meant. Painted on canvas, written down on 50
pound parchment paper, sprayed in vivid color on
a side alley brick wall, it would all look something
like this: a miniature wind up toy, chest glowing
orange with heart and rage, waddling through
most days poking people’s misery with good
nature wrapped in a zapper-looking plastic gun,
smile pasted on with self-adhesive charm. Over
time the toy becoming grey, smudged, slow; the
smile peeling off its face at one corner. People the
toy once knew, all grown tall, the toy still a
miniature soul locked up in 1975, getting stepped
on until it becomes so accustomed to being
trampled, it throws itself underfoot for fear of
irregularity. Thoughts become weapons become
judgment become a hangman, a guillotine man, a
dungeon dweller with black hooded face; drops in
a bucket of things that keep the toy finely attuned
to all things demise. It’s practiced gratitude making
it a household favorite until one day it shorts out
and is left to define death in a loop of tireless
revelations. Now that I think about it, having made
myself perfectly clear, maybe I don’t know what
I’m talking about. Maybe I don’t know anything.

Smile by Eli Perez.
•
I have a terrific smile. Soft lips connect glowing
cheeks that frame stout teeth; pearly whites locked
together like an iron gate at the mouth of a
towering castle. I’ve used it in both wartime and
peace. It has beat back legions of self-loathing,
wrestled shame into the ground, broken up moral
squabbles with schoolyard precision, and
negotiated many a truce. It has withstood decades
of mental misuse, shoveling kilos of nonsense at
dire straits, fanning cubic tons of billowing smoke
over the most precarious of events, and clamping
down on inclement emotion. But it is failing.
Hairline fractures line the roots. Cracks are
painting the corners. And where a smile once
greeted every sky, no matter how blue or grey, a
scowl is forming. Like a black marble Gargoyle
surveying a wide expanse of wintery threadbare
trees, my smile is hunched, a claw-footed grip on
some craggy precipice, looking out at a dying land,
wondering if this was home, all along.

~~~~ DECISIONS ~~~
.
If you didn't have anything going according to you, and you bump into the hope of something magical, will you give up on the possibility of good to fix the things that aren't going well? Or will you embrace the good, take that leap of faith, let magic touch you and keep on your path, because things that were falling apart earlier, will eventually come in together?

It amazes me, how people complicate seemingly simple decisions and end up hurting everyone around them. Why make it so hard to welcome love, irrespective of how hard other things are in your life right now? Why is it so easy to confuse practicality with foolhardiness?

I think the reason, why most people make silly choices, is because they don't set their intentions right before performing an action. You could be meeting the woman of your dreams, but if you aren't ready for her, there's no way it would work out. You can have loftiest plans for your fitness this year, but they won't take off until you intend to take your ass off that couch.

So just pause for a moment, think of all that matters, and then grab whatever you can have. Because nothing is mutually exclusive. You can have all of it - all the success, all the money, all the love. Only if you let them come at their own paces.

How many strands are we made of? As if we could
conduct ourselves in the same way an electrical
cord can power up our daily lives. But the question
stands. Are we wrapped around and around,
wound tight, sinewy fiber replacing tethered
copper. If not then explain the splintered mind that
can live in history and the future while toiling in
today. If so then how can we keep ourselves from
becoming frayed. The way we’re pulled around
corners, stretched underneath tables, stepped on,
chewed on, overloaded with needless demand,
how can we not become undone. Today I am
skinned, stripped of protective layers against my
will; exposed to malicious elements that threaten
to sever my connection from any semblance of
who I thought I might want to be. Tell me. How the
fuck do I make it stop.

Time Out by Eli Perez.

I have doubt, a soft wrinkle in my brow, that keeps
me tossing and turning at night. There’s no clarity
in this uncertainty. This is true of most
sleeplessness. There are facts that surround me,
lie next to me, read like hymns in some ancient
book of proverbs. Yet none are as real as the
abyss anchored in the pit of my stomach. There
are behaviorists who’ve explained a great deal to
me about this cognitive emptiness; about its
prophetic falseness and the need for inspirational
quotes. They mean well. But either cognition is
some God who’s fabric is woven from faith and I’m
too used to cotton, or I’ve just drunk too much
chlorinated tap water and believe all sustenance to
be poisoned to see any useable rungs on the
ladder of high hopes. Whatever the case, 1AM has
just slipped deeper into morning, and I am simply
out of time.

Erase all horizons 
Till the seas and skies meet 
Till you can reach the sky with your bare hands 
Till the clouds touch your feet 
Erase all horizons 
Till you can see the boundaries no more
Till you can step over to the other side
Till you are no longer bound to the shore
Erase all horizons 
Erase all inhibitions 
Till you reach those soaring levels
When you are able to make your own damn decisions. -Risa 🌊
A touch of Meraki. 🌸
