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 […]

And you don’t even remember the one sacrifice […]

TRILOBITE

Passion, meet Mattress. Face down. Blackness. That’s everything now. Massive. The gavel that pounds Against my dome, with a crashing sound. Musical. A one-track mind. Beautiful. That lost place in time. Memory, please, do dare to leave. Memory. Please, could you be so kind?
