The Voice of Annihilation

The Voice of Annihilation
For the innocents

Not really like Bird Man..
but the voice is one we all know and fear.
The whisperer of deadly-bad advice, the coaxer to oblivion.
It’s so far in the background weave, we are unsure what we perceive, but we think it.
It’s we who think it and then, for our survival, we fight it.

“Who’s talking? Is it talking to me?
It’s not a chat, a monologue or a soliloquy, not a request,
a
favor nor a memory.
Not really like Bird Man, but it calls to us.
It flaps like a shadow in our shadow
,
tells us to open windows in skyscrapers,
walk like a zombie to the edge of the cliff,
put our feet on the tiles of the roof, while it coaxes,
“Just slide down.”

It has no tone or timber, nothing we even recognize as speech and yet,
if we know it, we fight it,
and stay away from all those places it keeps sending us to.

It’s a black hole of our own universe reclaiming from whence we came.
It’s a stop watch to madness: Times up, and we all are prone to hear it someday.
It’s why I crawl, not walk, over suspension bridges, close the windows on all hotel rooms,
stay off of high balconies with low verandas..
“Oh, jump why don’t you?” It really says things like that!

It’s the anti life..calling you to your guaranteed death.
Acute-collective built-in bad programming, we all know it;
we came with it.
The voice of annihilation, one maybe heard in a locked cockpit, over the alps.
“Oh just get it over with!” Take it down”

The Avi Choice Awards-The Arts 2015

Seems amazing that a year has gone by since I wrote this little post on last year’s Avi Choice Awards, “A Word on the Avi Choice Awards” I didn’t mean to sound ungrateful last year, and I certainly do not want to leave that impression this year either. I want to thank the people who nominated me and tell them that it does mean a lot to me to have been chosen, but I also want to add that no one would have even heard my voice, or my poetry, if it had not been in a machinima directed and edited by my film partner Natascha Randt. Nat is the reason, anyone has even heard me recently, as I have not been doing many readings, or even been very active on the spoken word stage. So many could have been on this list with me, but for just the simple reason of omission, they were not added. I will put the link below here… and if you would like to cast a vote for me, well that would be wonderful. I am just not the type of person who likes to actively campaign for herself, and I have no social media team who can start lighting up twitter, Instagram, and fb in my name. I want to thank you for all the support you have shown me on this blog, reading my posts, seeing every machinima that Randt and Hoisan has produced, and supporting us in the good times and the bad. Your vote will be like a hug for me, and no pressure if you don’t get to it either. Many times these contests don’t reflect quality as much as popularity and social adeptness. If it were about quality, I would see many other names in each category, especially in the categories of machinima production, SL Videographer, Art, and yes the Spoken Word. Here is where you go to vote for your favorites, and you need to scroll way down to find the category I am nominated for (Favorite Spoken Word / Performer / Actor Female) Thank you for considering me for this award:Vote Here for The Avi Choice Awards Your continual support of what I do and what Nat and I do together means much more than any official recognition. That’s just how it is.

At The Exit

ddd

“Exit_Darkness”_by Janorien  http://www.deviantart.com

The thirteenth hour strikes a chord
bells and gongs tears and memories..
tragedy and loss.
It comes like a traffic accident,
the loss of a loved one, a senseless premeditated crime,
no one is ever prepared for that hour to chime.

In my darkest days at the end of humanity,
I sometimes fail to lift the curtain,
to see behind those most human eyes to find the divine.
All looks like murder, decay and calamity, rotting flesh,
madness creeps in tendrils spreading out in vines.
It feels like a final sprint on the last bend,
and Monday begins where
Friday tried to end.
Time is stuck in the fast lane
speeding away with us… with all of it.

It seems so hard to touch the gift, hear the lesson calling,
embrace the trial by fire, picture it as just another baby step,
while we crawl down the road to wisdom.
Even though I don’t see it much, I have compassion.
It was squeezed out of me like paste from Time’s tube,
daily, inviting me to be a witness to so much misery,
mixed into a symphony, with laughter, humor, children’s glee and death.

Too much drama and short on selflessness,
with violence and Nature’s sweet curds all rising to the top,
the bi- product of mixing it up and shaking it roughly.
We are like a rag in a dog’s jaw at the end of time,
and it’s hard to drink this chaotic potion of confusion.

The painfully sweet, the returning loss, the cocktail of humanity,
the sweet ‘n bitter order of mayhem….
The box of chocolates, light and dark, poisoned, and nutritious;
we really are allowed to choose which ones we ingest, you know.
No one stands over us, making us eat Everything!
Some get it right today, then get it wrong tomorrow.

Hard to say which day is better for learning,
or what will be useful to take with us,
as we stand in line at the exit.
