    The world beats slow as eyes turn to you, God-like in your half-struck pose Turned over head first in my inspiration. You exist less than a figment, A half-dreamed love, A half-bitten quick, A half-born image, An icon – half half half. I remind myself that I am only half here: Left behi...

    “In this day and age” They rant, Mouths spewing like sewage. Oh god, Not again; The hypocrisy of it all! Rolled eyes and bitten tongues compare naught With bitten lip and rolled joints Because “in this day and age” Serotonin springs like a sniper in some, And in others, oh others...

    And she with beetle eyes squinted at 24 font words blown into infinity, betrayed the poem by laughing in irony of her actions and asked me to beat a confession but she didn’t know that I was the poet, burdened by inability to comply because these words beg a friend and she was a chal...

    Words echo in empty mind: Silence – there is nothing to be told of. She swings back: head, Hips, lips parted – teeth bared At blank pages filled with blank thoughts Glaring back with blank stares. Chicken scratch piles in the trash and Oh! Hell: she trips off those parted lips – Sh...

    The world beats slow as eyes turn to you; Feet weight heavy – bottomless bricks. My mind is a spiral neither down nor up, A cloud of contentment buried in the greenery Of your pills, broken down into two Of right-brained me’s. My thoughts are slow: I catch them Like criminals, like fish....

    The year has passed with sardonic eyes. Don’t you stare back at me, Glassed over like a sand spit, a mouthful to regret. I am always always always; This has never come. Now is the time to clench hands Around each other because We will be gone and you will be gone And I will be where I’...

    Titillating tingles turn tempers to terrors, Looming limbs leer length-wise longingly: You yearn for your yesterday. Footsteps free-fall finely; fighting for fear In intrepid idiocy I invade into isolation, Ducked down, damned and dappled in darkness No nicotine night-light knocks (never know...

    Let time be the slip from one edge to the next A watched timekeeper, Lids heavy with a thousand years under brow, Corrosion the broken bits from fingertips Stroke a past coral deep, passion driven to no end Endless rebirth from your wombless mind stared down As pearls do drip Ornate in gold ...

    Connect to me by your hipbones and hollow slopes. I will rest in the curve of your throat And find your heart where mine has gone, Where mine has drifted, where yours will come. Sync to the thrum of my routine and you, You will be between the beads of blood That you saw swollen when winter r...

    She of lucid eyes She of perilous mind Cannot see through cross-fired thoughts When sleep driven, amber coated throats Drown words in writing and writing In half-realized cries through the walls. Hidden lines smeared with ink stain pillows With regretful renditions of times when Help was dr...

    you, sadistic summer, poisoned the handwriting, the impatient pleasantries hold the innocent in fingertips of swine. untwist, dive, against the webbed bricks that line like untangled words, imperfected strings of letters that swelter in summer’s heat. hands have paused motion, minds ...

    I would like to be the spaces in your thoughts So that I may catch your silence between my teeth Like a moon-white virginity. The parentheses of your mouth is the punctuation Of my poetry, and mine does not exist. I am a lack of all that is necessary And it would be easy to beg that I am not...

    let wide eyes curl over half strewn lips the hollow curve of a neck sworn over skin, tight as the air that pricks in your chest, white as the blood shown sides from before. a scream is what curdles in your collarbones, a pierced echo like ears rung with discord. twisted in intestines is the m...

    The future rings clear as emptied spring in ears muddied with sins and vice. What cures have reached fingertips into our past? We are nothing but dust; we are nothing but the scraped up, coal black, pill pumped remains of a life lived in luxury and lust. Who will recognize us when they scr...

    I have had a taste of the soil Six feet under and I came back for more. I suppose I liked the feel of groundwater Beneath my tongue, the way I was A leech that sucked life from your thick-veined root. If it were up to me, I would have drained you in full until I Broke my neck through the ea...

    my body is a scab that we should peel to uncover ripe life from our cores. Pink skin is what echoes in white empty: the resounding plummets of rain in my ear, a heartbeat of constricting nerves. Kissing spines, swollen lips that touch and electrify with the pain of tomorrow is our past, ou...

    Test all you want but these shakes Are just my luck that sings between my veins. I would bleed out a song as I go, Somber and slow and willing as wish, Silver as a fish and gilled to breathe Among the cries that resound From the tunnels of your lips. I cannot swim, and I have been submerged ...

    Frozen fingers that seize your soul and I do feel the pierce of ice in my lungs. I am hungry for what lives no more. Can you smell what bakes beneath this earth? Seasons have changed. You could hear the echo in the sky under the hawk's call and between my ears is the ringing of win...

    And I wish for a love like yours sweet words exchanged through the hands like passing glances. I can have nothing but my own: my silence and my solitude and I cannot reach out to you, worlds away, and you are the ship that floats in the sea of me when all other have sunk, been consume...

    Between today and tomorrow I will have drawn crow's feet into my Eyes, lines of age carved from My dusted thoughts. Fly away, They tell me. Let the black feathers Take flight from my face, wisdom That nests against the curve of my cheeks, That inhabit the nights between my darks And my ...

    Push and shove Each hand lays more than bruises On the body of each that passes the doors They bleed their shrieks and shouts They leak their hopes and humanity They lose their selves in sorrows In deaths, in endings, in nothing Restless eyes line their lives Ever-moving and stained with m...
