I Pulled over on the side of a highway to right this, it’s the first time I’ve been able to put you into words and it still feels wrong
I Pulled over on the side of a highway to right this, it’s the first time I’ve been able to put you into words and it still feels wrong
Where are you going?
Why are you in such a hurry?
Why do you want to fly
away? From what? Where?

Do you see another side?
Do you perceive an outside?
Can’t you see that there is only one,
beating within the heart of everyone?

The edge that calls your name,
where does it lead?
The limits of everything,
does it really exist?

Why are you using your Imagination 
when the universe if far more interesting?
Why do you insist that the grass is greener
while you persist to neglect yourself and this?

This piece was inspired by the beating death of an Ottawa woman.
"A co-worker found Salm beaten, unconscious and half-naked inside the reading room around 12:30 p.m. Thursday. She died in hospital Friday." -The National Post

Don't help me when I know it's my own doing. A natural feeling. A need to get out.
Reap what you sew

I used to run
from the dawn,
crouched low and 
darting from 
shadow to shadow.

As if the night before,
like the old monsters
under the bed,
couldn’t get me 
if it didn’t see me.

My first Instagram post! I'm planning on sending out a new couplet each week.
My first Instagram post! I'm planning on sending out a new couplet each week.
Who am I
with the hubris to think
I’ve left it all behind
me with a legacy 
of ones who succumbed,
who took a swan dive
past their captors
past all the outstretched hands
into something 
finally 
belonging to them.

Wolf at my ankle, 
always
that will not die
until I do
I can only starve it
into a weakened
state, and go 
about my life,
best I can.
Dragging
a sleeping predator 
around with me.

and I am bound by
things reptilian, and
old, and will
wander 
away from the table
when I’m your dinner date,
with the other girlfriends 
sitting still, 
and cordial.

Marking National Poetry Day on the inaugural Arc Poetry Walk #ottawapoetry #ottawapoets #history #613poetry #nationalpoetryday #centretown @arcpoetrymagazine
Last night’s show was at House of Targ. Across the street from Quinn’s. And all proceeds went to Overdose CSCS Ottawa: the Campaign for Safer Consumption Sites (http://cscsottawa.ca/). It’s a good thing I stopped believing in coincidences a long time ago.

I hoped I’d never have to learn my beautiful Quinn was gone. But I can find comfort in there must be a rhyme and reason for it all. Though this is less rhyme and more a melody echoing back from the empty space of a life too soon ended. #addiction #opiatecrisis #endstigma #butforthegraceofgod #livewhileyourealive #ottawamusic #theamalgamation #ottawamusicscene #ottmusic #yowmusic #recoverypoetry #ottawapoetry #ottawapoets #bradleymartel

I can’t be your

the lunar light changes

you’ll see I never belonged

My guru #swamivishnudevananda used to say "don't bleep like a sheep, roar like a lion." This week's episode with @kingkimbit a local Ottawa artist on speaking her truth even when it's messy. Thank you for being brave and sharing with the world, Kim.

she had the crazy eyes

categorization so far.

And I raise a glass
to the common delusion
that we have ordered the chaos
to suit our needs
and with a sip
I stumble widely and I slip
right into the periphery
a stark and lonely place to be.
And if you make it back
the zeitgeist will sound 
made-up,
an empty orchestra
against the city-numbered sky.

I take this picture of myself
and with my sewing scissors
cut out the face.

Now it is more accurate.

and a layer of white
covers the dirt
and the frozen tree
no longer shelters
the innocent
but beneath the ice
an ancient seed
patiently waits
for the sun
and the spring
to one day bring hope
to those who lost
their way in winter #poetry #poems #poem #poemsporn #poetrycommunity #ottawapoetry #ottawapoets #canada #iranian #iran #persian #montreal #toronto #nyc #losangeles #seattle #tehran #london #uk #usa

Don't worry so much, 
this life is but a dream
with no memorable beginning 
and no foreseeable end, 
just the middle 
full of false memories 
pretend importance 
and self inflicted ailments 
unworthy cruel malice,
headaches and heartaches.

I won't tell you to mind your future, 
or forget your past, 
because you well know by now
that now is all that you have
and now you are alive,
albeit with a thousand problems;
so live well, with past and the future,
with life itself at play for your pleasure.

This is not the end my friend, 
you will be here now forever last. #ottawa #ottawapoetry #ottawapoets #poetry #poems #poem #poemsporn #poemaday #canada #england #english #uk #usa #nyc #iranian #iran #persian #tokyo #tehran #paris #life #poet #poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #toronto #vancouver #montreal

Muhammad was Jesus 
Jesus was Buddha 
Buddha was Inanna
you fell in and out
and love carried on
paving the path. 
No matter who you are
or to which scene you belong,
you know what is good
even though you pretend,
because Inanna became Buddha,
and Buddha became Jesus,
Jesus became Muhammad,
and after all that came you. #poem #poet #poetry #poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #resist #resistance #poetsunite #poetsunited #iran #iranian #iranianpoems #persian #tokyo #tehran #toronto #vancouver #nyc #love #london #losangeles #newyork #ottawa #ottawapoets #ottawapoetry #montreal
