7.26 TRAIN
by Stephen Karnaghan

The realization …
confronting …
my journey …
my initiation …
the pain …
the exhaustion …
because now I have …
tree time warrior …
do not worry …
your secret is …
nobody would …
the realization …
the nightmare …
oh the vain will …
and I …
and I …
feel my life slip away …
the understanding …
how could I …
the realization …
too confronting …
people will not …
and the equation floating in nothing …
waiting to activate …
the straightening of time …
imprisoned in our conscious minds …
ever bow tie …
is nothing …
and …
and …
to my horror …
it all makes …
and we …
the entertainment of the Universe …
Oh! Oh! How the vain will suffer …
and I …
with bow tie time …
generations loving lusting …
Oh! …
maybe others will know …
poets …
rejected poets …
given the key …
to the question …
oh we are so stupid …
vain …
and ridiculous …
and the title may …
may be the answer.

WARP MESSENGER, Poetry by Stephen Karnaghan

Genre: Philosophical

WARP MESSENGER
by Stephen Karnaghan

It was as if I were a painting …
abstract splash of colour …
no subject …
a road …
people walking …
over weight …
angry …
jealous …
not hiding their distaste …
they showed a distaste for me …
sneering hatred …
scared …
scared of me …
who …
what …
what had I done …
I could not recognise myself …
one person came …
surrounded by a rainbow …
rainbow of magnificent colours …
music danced around her …
she was walking towards me …
I called to her …
beautiful ambient sounds …
atmospheric …
infiltrating …
giving people colour …
sweeping hatred and anger …
people now sat before me …
spirits open to see …
longing to be free …
free of their conscious minds …
serenading them into happiness …
they grew old …
cascading down a time tunnel …
humans turning to dust before me.

HOW THE HAT?, Poetry by STEPHEN KARNAGHAN

Genre: Society, Life

HOW THE HAT?
by STEPHEN KARNAGHAN

There is the wilderness lay a hat …
in memory of …
of a time when …
but no more …
there were people you know …
there were people and dogs and trees …
yes, yes …
and music and painting …
it was all here …
it was all here …
art was to be the saviour of humanity …
art …
but it didn’t …
everything gone ..
and they knew it …
yet …
arrogant …
thinking they have to …
but no …
they wouldn’t …
oh they wouldn’t …
they would want to be paid …
money …
money …
people prayed to money …
yet it was powerful …
then one minute later …
one minute …
money was worthless …
you …
you …
praying to your phone …
do you not realize …
do you not realize …
cannot you think of your family …
your children …
don’t you want …
and you sir …
you sir …
with your brain in porn …
do you not realize …
there is no time for one last …
all electricity gone ..
in one minute …
gone …
one minute …
this minute …
this minute of history …
in the history of the earth …
other living things …
other intelligent living things ..
will find this minute …
will find this hat minute …
they may ponder …
they may record the ending …
as history …
recording the arrogant species …
destroying everything …
destroying themselves …
thinking they were …
thinking they were magnificent …

Yet I … I write in my book … with pen … unlike the hat … book lost after my death … in a recycled bin … like the human race … biodegradable … then how the hat?
