Home rips open my exo-skeleton

When I abandon my home spirit
things start to grow weary.
As painful memories consume me
how will I know to never look back at anger?
The morning smell begs
creativity wants its place it calls haven.
New areas & new faces
adjusting to spark for inspiration,
but as time goes by,
the years bring me to decay.

My real home is where I belong –
If I don’t return, then I might as well drive myself
into complete madness.

  1. CHARLIE, WE HAVE TAKEN SO MANY SNAPSHOTS OF EACH OTHER
    A WAREHOUSE OF PHOTOS OF OUR EXTERIORS
    SUPERSTITIOUS FEARS AND SAVAGE RITUALS
    ALL THOSE AVANT-GARDE BOOKS PUBLISHED IN EUROPE
    FLARF IS LIKE LAZARUS BACK FROM THE DEAD
    I UNDERSTAND YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR TEETH
    LITTLE WHITE PROSTITUTES IN YOUR MOUTH

  2. home definitely has a call..and i imagine never being able to return to it would drive one crazy…
    this one feels a bit different than your typical faire my friend…its much more contemplative
    and straight forward…

  3. CHARLIE, REMEMBER WHEN YOU SAID THAT THE PEOPLE
    CLOSEST TO YOU SMELLED LIKE ANTS ?
    I NEVER COMMENTED AT THE TIME
    BUT I WAS THINKING
    WHAT THE HELL DO ANTS SMELL LIKE ?
    STRANGE HOW AT THE AGE OF 160 YEARS
    LIFE HAS BECOME A NOSTALGIC COMEDY OF RECOLLECTION
    YOUR FLING WITH ADOLESCENCE HAS FADED
    YOU MAY NEVER RETURN HOME
    YOU MAY NEVER BELONG
    YOU MAY HAVE TO SAIL AWAY
    *puritanical constraints in boxes packed

  4. Charlie, a fine departure from pure Flarf, a terrific poem about the soul aspects of our homing instinct; like the line /the morning smell brings creativity/ You are too kind for your comments on my site; I like & admire your talent as well.

  5. Home is where the soul finds comfort… no matter what, if you don’t have a place to call home, something always feels off… btw, this is a nice change of pace for you Charlie! I appreciate all your styles tho; never change to satisfy others buddy 🙂

  6. I’ve learned this by now: Nothing is more important to creativity than a good, well-chosen home environment with all its, maybe corny, personal properties of your own choice.

  7. I HAVE HEARD TALK THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DISCARDED
    IF YOU GIVE UP THE SHIP, PLEASE DONATE YOUR BODY TO SCIENCE
    YOUR TORTURE CHAMBER PRISON CAN BE A LABORATORY TO ANOTHER
    YOU CAN BECOME A REFERENCE POINT
    FAR FROM THE WORLD OF DISCIPLINE AND SADO-MASOCHISTIC FLARF
    I WILL ALWAYS THINK OF YOU HANDCUFFED TO WORDS
    POSSIBLY NAKED ALTHOUGH IT IS OFTEN DIFFICULT TO SEE YOUR NUDITY
    A LIFE OF ALTER EGOS AND HABITUAL POETIC RITUALS
    ALL THOSE INSATIABLE WOMENFOLK SURROUNDING YOU
    CINDERELLA AND ANNE SEXTON AND OTHER ODD RECTAL SMELLS
    WAVE BYE-BYE, CHARLIE—-YOU WILL BE A RESOURCE ON THE OTHER SIDE

      1. SORRY, DIDN’T HEAR A WORD YOU SAID
        BUSY COUNTING—DOWN BEAT, SECOND BEAT
        TRYING TO KNOW WHERE EVERYONE IS AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT
        FLARF IS LIKE JAZZ—ENTHUSIASTIC AND OFTEN OUT OF CONTROL
        HAVE YOU TRIED THOSE ADULT DIAPERS WITH THE FLARF POUCH ?
        A CONSCIOUS ARTIFICE WHICH ALLOWS THE POET TO MANUFACTURE
        THE HERE AND NOW OF MANURE—NO MORE CONFLICT
        WITH THE DISRUPTIVE MOVEMENTS—JUST DROP AND GO
        I KNOW YOU WERE EDUCATED TO SUPPRESS YOUR POOP
        BUT IN 2014 FREUD AND OBAMA ARE OUT THE WINDOW
        YOU ARE NO LONGER JUST A POWERLESS PIECE ON THE CHESSBOARD

          1. I SAW A CAN OF INSTANT FLARF AT THE SUPERMARKET IN DARK TOWN
            A PHOTO OF YOU ON THE FRONT LABEL GIVING A STAR TREK HAND SIGNAL
            THERE WAS A TRUCKLOAD OF LABIA MAJORA IN THE INGEDIENTS
            HEAVY SALT SO PRIMORDIAL FORCES COULD HOLD SWAY
            I STILL CHUCKLE AT HOW YOU USE FLARF AS A MEANS
            TO STRIKE OUT AGAINST ANNOYANCES AND MISFORTUNES
            FLARF IS SO INDIFFERENT TO CHRISTIAN VALUES
            FLARF IS SODOMY TIMES TWO
            TEARING A NEW HOLE
            POETRY OPENS THE NEW DOOR
            BEING RESHAPED AT ANY COST

              1. CHARLIE, I WANTED TO CUT THE CHILDREN FREE
                THAT DANGLED FROM YOUR BRIM LIKE THREADS
                I WANTED YOU TO BE FREE IN THE ADULT WORLD
                FREE OF SIN AND ERROR—TO NEVER KNOW HOW
                COMPLICATED THE WORLD IS
                TO NEVER BE SMIRCHED
                BY THE WORD OF THE LIVING GOD
                THERE SEEMS TO BE A TOUCH OF FANATICISM
                IN THE MOST INNOCENT OF FLARF
                FLARF WITH ITS ROYAL JELLY
                AND CATERPILLAR EGGS
                FLARF IS FULL OF INTRIGUING COMPLEXITY
                YOU GAVE EVERYONE A VALENTINE ON FLARF DAY
                EVEN PEOPLE WHO WERE DIRECTING YOU
                TOWARDS A COURSE OF DESTRUCTION
                THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU
                YOU WERE PINK IN A STATE OF PRE-EXISTENCE

    I KNOW YOU HAD A NOODLE FOR JOAN RIVERS
    BUT YOU HAVEN’T WRITTEN ANYTHING SINCE
    AUGUST 12——————-GOOD LORD !!!
    TAKE YOUR HANDS OUT OF THE ELASTIC SPACE
    THE BACKDOOR FUNNEL, ORGANIC OR NOT
    SHOOT OUT SOME WORDS, BE JOHN WAYNE
    LIFE IS BURLESQUE, CIRCUS, A NEW MISTRESS
    FIND A LOVE BUTTON ON ALICE TOKLAS
    FIND A GINGER MAN AND COUNT THE HAIRS
    FLARF UP SOME LEWD JUXTAPOSITIONS
    YOU ARE LOSING THE CURVE
    ON YOUR MANHOOD

        I MAILED YOU A BOX OF CANTANKEROUS CHILDREN
        THEY WILL REQUIRE A LOT OF MAINTENANCE
        AT BEST, HUMOR THEM—GIVE THEM YOUR BEST
        THEY ARE PARASITES BUT IN A COVERT FASHION
        BED AND BOARD FOR LIFE PARASITES
        TIME AND MONEY LEGITIMIZES THEIR EXISTENCE
        THEY WILL HAVE GREAT SKILL IN CONSUMING YOU
        SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR ARTISTIC TANTRUMS
        AND YOUR STREAM OF FLARF
        ANY EXCURSIONS INTO THE POETRY WORLD
        WILL BECOME SURVIVAL EXPEDITIONS
