Acid Poem

By Lucas Herrera

Far from now

Anywhere to ever be spoken of

My contrary calls

Gleaming back through the spectacles

Hold up light truth it shines in its utmost robust and hoping never know for words hit the page

it is grounding so much more than any quick serenade.

Radiant the night time shouts at me

The screaming of the taxi lights

The burning of the apple bee

Steep there and sip your tea

For god

Who is it

Wheres the world of wisdom

A book

A monologue

A carpentry fatality

With these disheveled

Just take to the page some son

For all we know?

Ferris wheel of your memory remember?

Back and forth up and down and all upside down with the most you looked onto me with gooey brown eyes,

where your feet have been have never touched the ground.

You skip through the never ending celestial is you gaze back you feed me across planet earth.

 

Acid Poem

A Trash Eating Seagull Crossed My Path

By Lucas Herrera

He looked back and squawked a lot

Then he told me he missed it here

And the only time he ever felt like a person

Was when he was near

I tried to understand

It was hard

The sharp air and aggressive cars

The diamonds scattered across the road

But in this world nobody wants them

The trash-eating seagull took flight

I was left alone here

I went to see for him I saw him up there

Where will the harsh wind take him

And what will he encounter when he gets to it

He was sad to go

But before he left I could tell he tried to smile

A twitch showed on his yellow beak

Then a tear rolled town his cheek

I hope he finds out what went wrong

He squawks and squawks, always the same song

A trash-eating seagull crossed my path

A Trash Eating Seagull Crossed My Path
