"Graffiti Dharma" by Scott Wozniak
 

Pictures

and words

get stenciled

and sprayed

on walls

across

the world.

 

Passion

destined

to morph

into another

incarnation

of impermanence.

 

The world

is an exercise

in futility.

 

Why would I

think

these words

exempt?


"Horned Angels" by Scott Wozniak
 

We learn

to live with

and tolerate

our demons

when we think

someday

an angel

will arrive

to save us.

 

Once it’s clear

the angels

want nothing

to do with you,

it’s only

a matter of time

before all hell

breaks loose

and you settle

for the demon

who pays you

the most

attention.

 

Over time

you learn

to forgive

the pain

it brings

and start

to cherish

this dark angel

as your

redemption.
