Choices

The chemical peel

Tastes good


A dab of the tongue

On the face


Maybe this hand

Can grope the distance


Of the shade you would

Imbibe after all

One Day Only

Why not buy if it's on sale
Why not kiss when lips are spread
The plastics will only lose their luster
The metals, the sheen of their head

Doesn't matter who you worked for now
As long as they question you not
For the boys are all still watching you
Mortgage the reindeer - to buy up the sleigh

Inauguration Day

Whatever you save

Someone will use

The markets never

Shrug - off their weight


They smoke gallons of tar

You would save in a jar

For to its ruin

All will stack - despite you

January

No - last minute heroics

No - sunset when the work day is done

These are the leaves

That would meet you regardless

The decay of what only was won

Plaster

It doesn't hurt the first day

Only the second and third

It's raw without the rubbing

And with the rubbing, worse

Maybe I'll find space inside

To sleep away the scabs

Or maybe I'll dream

And heal the skein

With my illusions intact

After Christmas sale

This perfumed air

Will kill my brain

Nerves to dumb

Twitching bundles

Or maybe I'll never

Breathe again

Drive the blood

To the depths below

Summer is unbearable

The places to go

The beaches to see

The advices of how to drive and be

And all you haven't done

Give me winter instead

Braced behind the panes of glass

Or outside for a bellyful of air

Among the dead and desolate

Where the snow reaches the branch

You can stay awake forever

And you

Don't have to do a thing

Jetlag

We touched

, afraid of skin

We kissed , with lips

Akimbo

The awkward glance

Cast back around

Stings deep ,

When

Left on its own

Among the Types of Acid

Drain the - acid

- down - my bones

- fill the cavities

That - way


Embrace the - hollows

- of the nerves

- you strung


And - sleep through the

Worst - of the Night

Thursday, December 08, 2016

Optimism

Drain the - acid

 - down  -  my bones

- fill the cavities

this way


Freeze - the joints -

from where - they

Lay


Let all the - hollows

ring

December 6

Motionless is not only

The sum of moving parts

For dragging you back

To the headaches and white light


Better to scrap it tonight

And sit on the winner

Break their stale bread while

Crossing random wires

For maybe they'll sing for you

Boy

And maybe you'll just sleep

Through the fight

Winter

Why care about the day

When all of the day is done

Through the digestions

Frozen

Just to peek through blinds

Counting it back to null

Monday, November 28, 2016

Live forever

Check for wires

Round the back of the house

Flip the coffee table sideways

To gauge the static behind

Maybe they're listening

And maybe they aren't Through

the floor through the floor through

The floor

Might as well live like they are

And whet their gazes beyond

Little things kill

There is nothing worse

Than a packed swim bag

Outside a closed pool

Well actually

There are many worse things, yes

So so many worse

Things

Better Advice to Give

Let a little of the gas go

Try not to hold so tight

For if you strain and stare full circles

You'll be up for all the night

Frost this Morning

It just doesn't taste funny any more

For the ash is a spring for the faithful

Why not fold all your doubts

And grind them through gunpowder

To blanch the tongue,

Or snort back the brain

The Machines and Me

      No -
Deus ex Machina No
Bread and
   Circuses at - Dawn
The -
Pistols you chose
Still
   Work with that outfit
And the
   plastics of the - Space
Left behind

Just have to make past Tuesday, we thought

Some guy over there

Is Talking

to himself

Oh

God my God

It's me

He's muttering

And spurting all

Under his breath

Oh no oh

Well that's me

Why won't he just die

Or close up his eyes

And winnow himself

Back to sleep

Because because

Oh God because

He cannot escape how it

Repeats!

Street crossing

Let her bleed out - and quench the pain

She was coming at you anyway

Careless toe tapping the - trigger pulse

And fingers pasted to accessories


Let her bleed out in the sun and rain

And take her breath with the shade

She was coming for this long away

As hunger sharpens - everything

Anatomy #2

These are my bones my bones

My bones

These are my bones of clay


This is the way to make them break

To bend

All the heat from the day!

hours later

It will still all burn out now

The moon and the stars and the sky

The smugness and defeat

That permeates this steppe

Must roil back to eventuality

Friday, November 11, 2016

70 hours

So now what

If it burns it

Burns it burns

All the way

through the ground

And then

With what can still

take shape

Following

In its place

48 hours

Input in  and Input
Out - the
Source code shows
No signs of breaking

The peaks and the
troughs prove
the static of the
beast

How it listens
to you to
asleep by
Day

24 hours

There can be no consolation now

For the sins they instilled without you

Which in your name

Will reach - the moon

The guilt for the glut of the dust





MORNING AFTERZ



Nothing holds together anymore

The glue in the gut is gone


Spinning around - and away from Center

Burning the ground through the roof
