Burnt

My legs are wobbly jellied eels Bones deformed yet heavy-leaded anchors Like when I’m sick from flu, sweating, Reaking sweet cough syrup and Rolling around in blankets. Oh, I’m a pig stuffed at Christmas And I can hear me squealing. Stuck holding a candle Even when it’s burnt my hands Even when the light has […]

Salt looks like sugar

Bad brine spiced alkaline-soaked sodium chloride Beef drippings, bacon racked and savoured serrano Hanging drying in breezeless dog day dead And then, this cur, wretched tramp just schlepps Scraping old leather on grained hardwood so, Letting calefication slip away Through acute open crevice The door lies ajar. Hound growls deep, so deep Dust shakes, peace […]

The Door of Dissonance

My ear is pressed up against the door So that my flesh is sucked in its cold state Gently glued and it does linger.

A memory

Be there in the afternoon You’ll let me you know If you want me that way. When is a good time For me And then Have to stick to a set time And I have to go get through it. I will get back with Her Thanks again Thanks so very, very Sorry. Good. Hope […]

When Eyes Open

When I look into your eyes I.  Indeed. Look.  Look through the eyes of love You look fantastic. At the bottom of everything Lash mascara Eyes open Eyes blinking. Kanye loves Kanye Blunt eyes stare down.  Hopeless. Helpless romantic but blue twisted orange organic free-wheeling ecstasy. And all for the love of you. Easy Sunday […]
