Draft Model

mechanical man
in designer shorts, mindless
they give him a heart

what’s a heart
without a life source

it pumps electricity
to a battery in his belly
every shot makes him smile

his partner
she has a mind
but no heart

what’s a mind
without a soul

her belly button
plugs into his belly
for a recharge

they join forces
erupting frequent power surges
right there in plain sight

how some gizmos function
is beyond me
do they have no sense

Clear Sight

 

9c4

Hide and seek

Who knows I’m hiding

Did they run away

Leave me here

Is God watching

.

Imagining my invisibility

Nearsightedness

blurs my view

choking on my fears

of abandonment

.

Child of God

Bare of pretense, masks

Rambunctious stories

Stripped of them all

Will they recognize me

.

Can I be found

Who am I hiding from

Everlasting spirit

Where do I dwell

Can I come out now
