Symptoms are panicked
Potential is there
Paperwork pending
Forward with care

Light is a fixture
Sent to encase

in time (taste)

In time (taste)

I was sliding down a tube…ink and graphite…color.  The screeching squeaks and cries of my
hands… skin… grasping pushing against the wall. I was awake.  There aren’t dreams…only.
i’m bleeding again.
Too many words or not enough   which is it this time…and what would satisfy finally.  Stay
on course.  Or goes the quips of another adolescent morning staring into the trite. preying to
keep your attention.  Anything is suitable at this hour…stay the course.

What a charmed.
a new species was found out of the trees.
poor the pigtails. and found the ladder…
punching passwords and popping pills…
her hours were worth even more than her moms.
definitive.
no more games for the living only living for the game.
counting higher fast. bottom wages for the bottom line.
Trenches war red for the millennium.
Who has time to watch the clock? though. now.
through. The streams receding bank account.
trapped inside their cells.
inflation for the masses.
Ad-d ons NOW.
children have gotten laid-off by twelve fifteen.
ill defined to people…
meaningless. base. mine

glass (as prism)

This is printed on paper…far removed from where or what it is. Emotion. less. More. Nothing is completely pure is it…give or take.

Swatches of thought glued together by the chemicals of.

Female. Symmetry unsymmetrical soft and hard scents. Hair…lack there of …mind.
Attractive. A (peeling skin-scalpels). Never saw anyone slip out of the skin like that, dirty but
unworn. The muscle tone exquisite. Blood pressing against a non-existent shell now. drip
drip. Perfect glossy. I think I can hear her heart…losing pressure…falling out of love. She
lies waiting for the further. Takes in oxygen, breathes out life.

I think I’m gonna lose it…trash can or shoulder…which ever comes first.

Written In Wax

Histories written in wax melting from conviction
Cooling in the molds of future’s past prediction
We’re wrapped up in the tapestries of our daily race
Covered by the fabric of our time and space
Killers of the gods we knew and the dreams we stole
Sacrificing light into our ancient blackened hole
So now you are what you were sometime yesterday
While memories and tragedies slowly fade away
And there you hung high upon the cold cool white fridge door
Stale entropies, spoiled luxuries, schemes and nothing more

Bleed Like Me

You can cut me deep
Or let me be
Try me on
Sleep with me.

Don’t give me that
“I’ll always be”
I understand
You bleed like me.

Under Urban Skies (Our Fate)

My mind is beyond the cell
Cosmic dreams, a trillion stories tell…
Fire and ice, we’ll build a better hell, oh well
Chromosomes twist and turn live and burn under urban skies our fate
Oh wait, forgot to feed the dog now body’s wasted way
Let’s play,
A game of spin the bottle, naming god, you or I, well who’s the fraud? Not that I care
Saw you standing there, alone, in the sea
Swimming through the family tree of dishonesty and destruction
Mother superior this corruption it’s ok cause I still love you but it’s too late
Let’s sale eight pints of blood to buy our birthday cake
Kill the children that should wake them up
Trapped inside a yellow plastic cup, grey scissors paper thin
Wrapped in skin I found you here
Alone and full of fear, if I’d known I’d have shown you all the colors in a blade of glass
Watch your ass…

The Lord Of The Flies

I look down upon you

But from where do I stand?
On shoulders of giants?
Through eyes of a man?
In empty places forbidden?
Or places you’ve seen?
Perhaps in a memory or maybe a dream…

errant thoughts give you away

Kicked down the street you say
In bottles and stone
Huddled en masse to find you’re alone
Don’t run
You can not
Don’t cry
You will not
For the Devil himself
Has cast you this lot

So pray to the crutch, the pill, the device
While all things beneath you bid on your price
And heed not a warning not a bit of advice
As those that shall have you, shall have you on ice

errant thoughts lead you astray

Know that the Naked dance for but a few eyes
The Under, the Over, and the Lord of the Flies

In Elect

In elect
You were gonna change the world
Disinfect
All the boys and girls
So what happened?
Thought you had a plan
Guess not…
Now take it like a man

Intellect
Is gonna change the world
Reinvent
All the boys and girls
Prop you up and put a smile upon your face
Mop the floors with you…
Tidy up the place

Sun Up Sun Down

Sun up Sun down

The fly walks on
Another number first
Sunday’s for the paper dolls
The children very versed

Underneath this open face
Underneath this net
Not one worthy line was cast
Not one word was spent

Brain Dribble

Brain Dribble

Needle pricks the baby
Baby starts to cry
Baby wants the needle
Baby wants to die

Baby’s just a little girl
Baby knows the news
Baby screwed another life
And baby sings the blues

Baby once believed in God
Baby grew up fast
Baby gave it all away
Left baby in the past

Baby sure is grown up now
Baby’s gonna leave
Baby wants a hero too
Some thing to believe

Baby’s found a friend in me
Baby wants to fly
Baby lost herself inside
So baby says goodbye

Now I’m killing baby
Baby wonders why
Baby wants to kill me too
Baby wants to die
