DeathDeath is a sweet wind
to carry childish thoughts away,
where I assume they remain childish,
Time is a short drink
to disintegrate one sugar cube each day,
and in her belly it is all far too sweet,
too sweet to stay.
$carecrowStand up. Pack your holes with money. Open your arms and purchase an infrastructure to keep you tall. House a thousand tiny lives conducting paperwork, texting one another and wishing they were home. Never wash yourself. Always look North. Always the same direction. One day. Climb yourself. Look off the edge. See the sun set for the first time. Follow it down. A monumental and expensive scarecrow. Smiling sleeping from now on.
Disgusting Queen Earth #1
City lights molest stars
under the mini-skirt of preteen night.
Sky-scraping fallaces reach deeply upward
housing one thousand little men clamoring for 1st place.
It's raining mindless drops of nothing here, and
I'm sitting on the tip of the city trying very hard not to be disposable.
Sheets of pavement lap at my feet.
I guess this is the best it has ever been, or ever will be.
Disliking empty things, I rejected you.
I say hollow, you say goodbye.
We split in three without the will to try.
When I was 12 I severed cords to feel their power,
perhaps less brave than in the room below with father.
He's drilling teeth inside his skull with a phillips head
while I creep up stairs pondering how much he has bled
Despite methanphetamines I still love my dear mother
She's picking shards of glass from the inside of her arm
and I don't have the heart to tell her they aren't.
The tweezers are stuck in her wrist.
The turning of the world persists.
There is no smoke around now that the bullet's sleeping.
Mother's gun has been put to bed so long ago.
I turn around and see the years of my life need weeding,
buried sideways in the air,
a rotted pile just behind me,
reaching for my hand but I don't mind.
Swimming in a FloodI don't see much point in people like you
People like you don't see much in point in eyeing it out
No one likes my poetry until it's already happening
A shitty bouquet of words
It's really neat.
Missing out on so much invisible fun
means someone sucks at the art of non-desire
He chose his colored glasses and
with hipster flair declared "this is who I am"
But if I remove the glasses, he puts on a mask.
and if he puts on a mask, you will literally never see his muscle,
and you will never see his blood,
and you'll keep wondering how someone could move
under so many layers of skin.
Now more than ever nothing happens.
I keep apologizing to my child, saying
"What can I do? I love you."
There was that one time that Suzanne
had been so afraid that she held me, just that once,
against my father's flood. And he busted us up anyway.
I guess I'll never forgive you until you die.
There. It's the most straightforward thing I've said.
Now slowly leave my memory.
Eyes spin like arachnids in the slab of velvet you hide behind.
We got in a terrible car crash and you couldn't help but laugh through the tears
piloting salt through two perfect towers paced in perfect pitch
to crush a fist of glass, you perfect bitch.
Nothing should prepare my queer heart to guard from talented women
June, desperate for control, the sinister lack of control.
I'm stealing your words, hit me as hard as you can.
It's your birthday, we're all your biggest fan.
My stomach is your bitch getting facefucked from behind,
look, what style, what gilded slut to host this frame of mind.
Chances are you're falling backwards through the mud
claiming it's a journey of one thousand miles. Thud.
Adaption of Oscar Wilde's...No need to waste the foolish tear,
Or heave the windy sigh:
The man had killed the thing he loved,
And so he had to die.
And all men kill the thing they love,
By all let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look,
Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword.
So here, my fist upon its shaft,
a saber lifted high,
I exhale your name from out my chest,
and kill you one last time.
One strike for wishing me my death,
a second out of spite,
a third for making my child a threat,
a fourth ensures you die,
Now every strike from here on out
can be counted to the credit,
of men who hold dearly on to love
while women do forget it.

yet standing still, rock-steady at the helm.

much more for sentiment than any practicality-
would rather see beauty than this sorry reality-
would rather build castles than stay on the ground,
cause it's snowing now up in the clouds.
an ode to our unpretty corpseswhen things can't coexist
sometimes the world just qualifies them on its own
with enough pure madness to drown
out the deafening silence
it is the most tenable ones left distilled
flensed and laid ritual
at the feet of Saint Cecelia
for sainted vultures to circle
and pass over in turn
randomgiving me this revelation
i have recieved another chance
at re-entry into this world
why did you ignore me
this reasoning is flawed
perhaps this isn't what
the makers have intended
why did they ignore me
i am here again
despite their wishes
i am willing to release this darkness
only to those who deserve it
there are innocents
among the corrupted
these shall be spared
why did he ignore me
just another instance
in this container of erosion
it all closes eventually
why did we lose each other
dulleda blunt-edged sword

it's not even a sword,
it can't cut anything.
it can't hurt you,
unless you sharpen it,
but some you just can't,
some are just defective...
still, could serve
as a metal walking stick,
but the crude form
might be embarrassing...
though in need
it can be game,
if you get bored
just throw it away...
i'll fall and fall,
tormenting my soul.
only and only for you.

seed inside the soil,
floating in amniotic fluid.
a mixture of flesh and blood,
that's, when time should've stopped...
maybe the momentary comfort
made me go forward,
but now my only regret
is ever being there...
after you leave the womb
there's your common goal:
filling the emptiness,
that lies within your chest...
and the quest:
spread like rats.
make more and more,
seek your happiness
in an empty mess...
tired and sleepy.

holding a stick
in my hand.
dead frogs lay all around
each has a hole in it's heart.
i'm doing it for fun...
such a joy
to kill a toad:
where to touch
my wooden sword,
just like this,
yellow leaves and yellow grass
slowly suck up the gooey blood,
leaving red-orange stained spots
showing the way back home...
Genghis Whenever we were bad my mother used to take us to the mall to see Genghis Kahn. They kept him in a dusty diorama of a Mongolian steppe, all tall grass and yurts. He sat on a throne of bone (well, plastic shaped like bone), scowling in incomprehension at the American kids who flocked around him like startled lemmings. My mother would usually push us toward him, saying things like “Tell him what you did to your father’s stamp collection.” Genghis would give a grunt, spit a wad of phlegm onto the tall grass, and give us a wizened, wrinkled grimace, as if he had to go to the bathroom.
He terrified me.
My brother couldn’t get enough of him.
When my brother got caught in my mother’s evening dress, my mother grabbed us both and dragged us to Genghis. It was a slow day, and we were the only kids crowding him. “Tell him what you did,” my mother hissed a
