Rob Knetsch Poems
'Seeping Through Into The Bubble'
all along i was convinced i always knew at least i thought
crawling the streets clawing stone to move forward stopped by a wall
woke up in the mud with weak limbs crawling toward the water too dirty to drink from
I will the end no not the word but the real thing the real experience
Fought The Battle
as a lone star bright shining in this dark a universe silent he fought the battle
the gate the hall the dot in the distance growing
Okay Yes, he knows He knows
What Will Happen
what will happen after death what will happen after the rapture what will happen after a sweep what will happen after the world ends
i see it but oh no i don't like it
'The Rolling Hand Of Terry Tango'
I must admit, must confess Terry Tango was a real man a real man's man a great personality
'Pawn And Shame'
Making a move but not getting far just one step forward ahead of the backlog
In this desert my footprints into the horizon sunk away deep
to walk the street this street, old street my street, so long from when i was
'About Men With Vision'
They are larger than life They show power They radiate control They discipline
cradle, burned cradle
shattered by rocks
covered with curses
stained by blood
trampled on, crushed
by many feet
