he stays up to count the cavalry that is her hair
    hoping that the four walls have not battered the ranks
and that she is not burdened by the causalities.

there are holes in those walls and false marrow
    in the floorboards of this union. he knows it as his eyes
begin to slip into the covers. 

even the barking phone of responsibility begins to dull
    as the night develops its negatives into memorized practices
and habits of old hobbies.

she will ask him to smile more  for the pictures
    and she will tell him he is helpful, the way he works
and the way he worries. he will

become a carcass of goodwill for her, a sacrifice
    to her enemy; to her. the four walls are blacker than before
she will tell him as he brushes new colors on.

he stays up to hear the soft mumbling of her army
    as they are flanked by the four walls. hoping that she will
wake up and ask him to smile for a new negative [them].
the boom
barks mad

at dead pens. 

etched requiems, 
gazelles - sonnets

/poems/

cut from clocks
serving scraps

from dead hands
    (with dead pens)

that bark mad
at the boom.

the requiem dream
    /defined/

in loose bricks
and dead sonnets,

in the boom
the dog sleeps

to the clock. 
Loud Pens/Mad Barks
A poem about poems and dogs and people and bones and clocks and madness and something about society with a hint of the apocalypse and subtle tones of a run-on sentence.

Hey guys,

How are the literary waters of DeviantArt these days? I've missed the poetry and poets of this site. Sorry I've been gone, guys.

This last year has been a huge blessing to me. The Jawline Review is developing at a rapid pace. We are about to launch our first ever print edition which includes Harvard Master Degrees, Poet Laureates, DeviantArt Literary Masters (Jade-Pandora, RussianTim, gliitchlord) and some phenomenal scribblers from around the world. This is the craziness of my currently evolving existence and I love it! I have read over 12,000 submissions in one year, seen the poetic talents of people in Ireland, China, London, Africa and the United States - even had the blessing of receiving free books from aspiring authors. I mean - how in the world did I get so lucky!? OMG watch that o_O -right- 

I'm a thriftstore poet turned editor of a literary endeavor that reflects the baseline of my own punk rock song and I couldn't be happier about it.

If any of you scribblers (or your friends) want a chance to submit to the Jawline, please go ahead and send in your works. I would be more than honored to give them a look over.

Besides that, I'd love to have some of your favorite poems on DeviantArt in the comments below so I can catch up on all the talent this site has.

To fuller notebooks and moving cursors,

I have been given the greatest gift of reading dozens of poems by different authors over the last year of the Jawline.

You poets make my day better.
I sleep next to America's kicking dog.

Wake up and make your bed!
You will rest again. 

Tie the laces and fix the holes
left in your soles. 

Outside
the sagebrush grows into pale green tails
that wag against the wind
and beat the thin drums of their sister weeds. 

I look to them for an original thought.
Something revolutionary with the pulse
of the rabbit and the dog.

The top of a cherry tree filters natural light
into splinters. The water sleeps, hungover
in this California stream. 

The machine, my pay  - roars,
the sagebrush; cut
with fresh sweat on the forearm.

A raven, neck-deep in seed
looks up to see spinning against his beak. 
All wings escape a natural call. 

An open book burns the sun set
with the scent of oil
and tuition.  
A Student's Sympathy for Nature
Well, hello there! Long time, no see! 

I wrote this piece (well, I started it) back in late May. I ran a small-scale landscaping company to help pay for my school. Nature, tuition, money - all of these overlapped in my life and I realized that life is without toil, but a natural understanding about where we want to be in life will create a natural desire to get there and that will breed a necessity. Necessity breeds change. 

I do hope you enjoy this little poem I wrote. 

If you're interested, my literary magazine - The Jawline Review - is about to release its first print run. There is still plenty of room if you would like to submit: www.thejawlinereview.com
