DEAD END

The people who live here Man, they really don’t see… Why this Dead End is beautiful, to me. Suspicious sounds abound in the wooded skirts of the streets I creep. Waiting for her. Always happy to wait for her. It’s a charm, and it’s a mystical vibe, but the people who live here, Man, they […]

Why Hide?

Just look at the grief given. Just look at the repugnant face of judgment Bubbling up to meet every well-intentioned decision. Nope nope, look to the mission. A better life. You will have a better life. Just look to the careful crafting Of the future you’re going to live in. It’s okay always, anyway, don’t […]

MORE ABUSE

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 […]

CALAMARI JONES

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 […]

CRYXALYSK

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…┬áHave I crossed the […]

GALAPAGOS

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 […]

L.O.Y.L.

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 […]
