Jax Muse

By Charles Cicirella

Jax Muse

Waiting at the door of my mind for another poem to advance like Sherman's March to the Sea
"Something there is about you that strikes a match in me" that's what Bob wrote, while for me it's more like a light at the end of a tunnel that I never believed I'd see
I'm a fool when it comes to people because even though I've always known what to say in my poetry, it's never been the case face to face as I oftentimes ruin a good thing by being too pushy or too dependent on conspiracies of illogic

Jax Muse a silver lining crashing through the pounding, cranial waves by presenting a new direction through the thundering of paranoia and the lightning of anxiety constantly purging my soul
There's a right and a wrong way and then there's my way which guarantees failure because not many people can handle a lava monster artist as I impede any strengthening bonds by asking too many fireproof questions
I watched her as the tears began falling and I knew someone was going to lose a finger or eye as two chameleons on a mirror have a conversation in poem form

I borrowed some of that last line from Jax because her words stoke my inner lion
I don't believe Jax quite gets just how much power she possesses as her genuine, gentle nature supersedes all the bullshit too many egomaniacs pass off as art
I haven't tuned into anyone's wavelength like this in a long time because all the radio stations have been co-opted by rope- a-dope salesmen hell-bent on breaking our spirits by brick walling the music and throwing it into our ears like poisoned darts.
