onward to orange

the original odd-ball

outcast by the orthodox

oblivious to opprobrium

and odious orbs of onlookers

obstreperous outsider

overstepping outlines on the outskirts

omits obtunded operations and outdated opinions

obliterates oppressing obstacles and opponents

offsets the obnoxious and obscene

obliged to the Omnipotent and Omnipresent Oneness

in oath, obedience, and obeisance

an omnium-gatherum

of overwhelming opposites

on and off

oscillates in orbit over and over

opinionated and obstinate officer of order

observes, opines, offers to organize

often objected to and overlooked

but ought to overthrow

the overbearing and orgulous

outgoing and openhearted

once an outlaw that outsmarted

occasionally offish

otherwise ok

oozes oomph

obtains occult and otherworldly objects

of outrageous origins

objectifies omens into opportunities

orchestrates outcomes by opting for optimism

overall an ordinary oracle


and that one and only oceanic oyster

is the owner of this oratorical ode to orange

some are colorful and vivid

with good witches and

figures dressed in white;

can you guess who they are?

they always smile and

leave you inclined to

remember what they say –

innate wisdom to guide you

through the day

then, there are nightmares

with their relentless burden;

once they arrive you wonder

if you’ll ever again spend

any time in a place of light;

you wake up with great fright

and run to turn the lamp on

so that they don’t seize you

but they already have;

that’s why you’re seeing

these dark melting faces

then one day those just flee

unless you erroneously

chose to follow their advice

just like the ones that

came from the light;

on that day, you don’t

run to the switch; instead

the light that you kept on

is turned off by your aide

who communicates

don’t be afraid

and you’re finally ok

it’s for communication

why else would skies be blue?


surely, to hide behind grey blinds

is not their goal; though


what they yearn to show simply

with color is not that simple


or maybe only this → the visible range

which both creates this fleshy vehicle


the tune of chakric lyre

carried by a skilled musician


and the exhaust fumes from it

distilling into seven feelings


perceived in varied billions

on a smoke screen, imprinting


their designs on further medium

where networked beings spawn


as architectural  sketches

(blue-prints), and on and on


preserving pattern via different codes

a totem pole of stages grows in length


or maybe even outwards – a strutting peacock

wishing to impress the female


that ponders how good of an idea

will be the plumage

reclusive ragamuffins in repellent rags reek of rot

and recover in ruins of run-down residences

by reveling in rum and rock;

rush from racy rails and reefers at raves

redoubles recovery and recuperation

from relapse, and riles rehabilitation;

regret and rancor recklessly ravage reason;

the randy and raffish of raunchy reputation

are rapidly raped and ravaged by rabid rapscallions

in the red-light region


remorseless rogues reject rectitude

and ratify repulsive regulations;

reptiles, remiss of responsibility,

rob resources for revenue and rank;

restless, ravenous rats!

rugged raiders and ruffians on a rampage

ransack the receptive ranges;

refugees run from relentlessly rigid regimes and rulers;

reliably robotic redundancy rebuffs revelation


right-wing ruses rely on renown religious rituals;

renegades remonstrate

to restraining routines of rapacious retail;

regnant royalty in rehearsed roles of refinement

refuses to relinquish reign and raises rebellion;

recalcitrance is reproached and ridiculed;

radicals are reviled, rid of, and relegated


recreant reductionists

rigidly refuse to rethink

and resent risky research

refuting reality to remain right


ridiculous rubbish is rewritten rhetorically

from random ratiocinations of rattle-heads


rocky relationships replace

raptures of rosy romances

romeos readjust into rasputins

regulating the romanovs


rowdy, roaring rage on a rant

rambles and reacts

rarely reconsiders or retracts

red-hot, rampant rumors and rude remarks

relieve and rejuvenate

revenge is revered

reciprocation recommended

reconciliation refrained from


register the reflections of resolute rappers

that recite and record razor-sharp rhymes

ridiculing racism and related rubbish

recede from this representation of red that rankles

relish the radiant rays and the rainbows
