choral-lizing juba-lizing . . . (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

*choral-lizing juba-lizing       a stultifying dis-synergizing

coffling eyes numbing
in the humm drumm sunging
of clamorous hustlers pluming
in talented tenth–ing clubs
this ancient hubris
still scheming in gangs gangling on
leeching the blood of us all
spilling here looking
it mo’ insidious now
nesting in nefarious vocalizings
anesthetizing synthesizings
of old rhythmating charms
dissolving all of us
denying on in our rusing refusals
to just pause while here inside
and reverently muse
scared   we all stumbling
running ‘round trying to hide
from this colding emptying
swelling torridly inside us
desperately fusing
propagating on out here  all around
aloning is eroding the sands of our beaches
swallowing ourselves on
in our own entangling arms
playing to the blaring sirens
of this persistent dismaying
coffling eyes numbing
in the humm drumm sunging
of clamorous hustlers pluming
in talented tenth–ing clubs
this ancient hubris
still scheming in gangs gangling on
leeching the blood of us all
spilling here looking
it mo’ insidious now
nesting in nefarious vocalizings
anesthetizing synthesizings
of old rhythmating charms
dissolving all of us
denying on in our rusing refusals
to just pause while here inside
and reverently muse
standing up leaning
we feeling around on our knees
snorting vain delusions
of masturbating hands
shuffling our scant aborting ponderings of why
consuming all everything
grabbing way ‘fore it comes
there is no anchoring ground
to which we will bound
hypnotically sucking
our dry brittle bones of renown
and rehearsing
our vaunting howling enthrallings
so you knowing
my face is the one that’s in vogue
just in case it be the case
that we come to be found
coffling eyes numbing
in the humm drumm sunging
of clamorous hustlers pluming
in talented tenth–ing clubs
this ancient hubris
still scheming in gangs gangling on
leeching the blood of us all
spilling here looking
it mo’ insidious now
nesting in nefarious vocalizings
anesthetizing synthesizings
of old rhythmating charms
dissolving all of us
denying on in our rusing refusals
to just pause while here inside
and reverently muse

One thought on “choral-lizing juba-lizing . . . (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

  1. Thanks, Asili. I have saved this version in my Nadhiri folder. Our Thanksgiving weather was wonderful —-cloudless skies and bright sunshine. I really found the peace of listening to birds and squirrels chatter on my grandparent’s land in St. James Parish and the fun of talking with my downhome cousins to be delightful. All best wishes, Jerry
