Believe me, I get it I still need to give it. The abuse that moves along Brittle grooves, revealed in the stripping Of the Flaming Roof. Believe me, I get it I still need to give it. Too soon, choking smoke clears the room, And lessons fade like Moon Phases When I’m not made to […]


Earplug pushin’ thug, Yep, I’ma real sound sleeper. And Dr. Calamari Jones is a renowned dream dealer. He creeps into the room with an upskirt mirror Glued to the toe of this Cunverse sneaker. Yeah, he likes to reflect on the beauty of life. Keeping me thirsty… Seems to be his calling. I wake up […]

I just want to find the perfect hive… On an overcast day, let me crawl inside. Bust off the twist-top, pop out the sides… And emerge, to eat you all alive. Overcast evening, let’s crawl inside… Be irradiated by the noxious vibe. Be disintegrated into toxic slime. Tell me when I’m oversharing… Have I crossed the […]


When you burn more bridges than you cross… You might be an island… I mean ethnological-economic, where not everybody should follow… anyway… (But back to Plate Tectonics…) When you toss more lava than you caught, And I’m half asleep, so it makes more sense… You’re playing with fire, but that’s okay. We might learn something […]


Of everything, I never knew How I wanted to be the love of your life. A lesson learned. So painfully. The one thing you never wanted to let yourself believe. Of everything I have to give, I’ll give So worthlessly. It’s a thing about trust. It’s a giveaway. It’s a visceral, stabbing pain, Am I […]

The only good duende

There’s an old, old saying Staining the lips of men, “The only good Duende is a dead one.” They say “The only kind Duende is a fed one.” Through beer-soaked beards, the layman sneers, “The only right Duende is a left one.” But in the corner of their eye, we will always be. We’ll sweat […]

Oil Paints

My heart. A marble in a 55-gallon oil drum. And the rusted bottom is flaking out Chipping shards, and my sharpest regret. Every word having been spoken, Brokenness. BUT BUT BUT. By this new song, the rumbling drum… slick spillage… marble bangin’, I undress Reality; This is an unforeseen curve… She, who until now, was […]

Car Case

I don’t roll the windows down, It feels like cheating. I’d rather feel the heat.  I’d rather do the work. I’d rather live this feeling. I could never scream loud enough To break all the way through. I don’t breathe. I get dizzy from the power. And when I hit that note And carry it […]


Yes, I understand there are Highs and Lows, But why did you send me to face them alone? When you smacked the new, blue rosary to my chest, And said “There lives the lion, now do your best.” Was that carelessness you were wearing, Or was that confidence? When you called me to your Quarter, […]
