    Once, you were a man and not a mouse, not Cowed into weakness by majority; Whore of Babylon, you called me, spat on My upturned face and mocked my dreams of you. The mind is broken but the flesh is still Willing. Normalcy in its innocence claims to Desire nothing more than a mental spar, An e...

    whenever i see the wishes of those as insomniac, as dully tragic, but not as disenchanted as me, i am inclined to disagree. they cling to their pastel-colored dreams of never waking up. they long to spend their lives in half-sleep, in pillow forts, hugging the back of a body; they think th...

    if i die young tell 'em it was because i didn't eat my greens never fed the hungry, didn't follow any dreams. say it was for the revolution – which one, it doesn't matter. i fought them all, mindlessly, like it was routine soaked with the blood of institutions my hands were clean like by ...

    4 a.m. and I am not dead yet. When I dare to close my eyes I see my tangled limbs; I see myself hiding from a dark that’s never hurt me; I see the rhythmic rise of every breath, but if I am still alive then why do I seem 10 a.m. and I was still talking to her. Her family walked in the...

    a sparrow in a reclining couch the therapist asks when did it first start there’s a pause, contemplative silence, and it says when I realised I was pneumatized and I couldn’t trust my trusses not to give way beneath the strain of this weakened structure. I can’t run or swim or jump or even...

    a voice over the PA: “today is amnesty day” all lost and found items returned for free, you don’t need to pay the paltry fine for your irresponsibility or even make the trek to the back of the office where god knows what’s been done on the copiers and in the gym shorts you have to wear i...

    Let me take you in my hand - maybe I’ll hold you too tightly, maybe you’ll kiss me, maybe you’ll fight me. This is a story far away from the big screen, set in the glow of the exit sign moon, the back of a deserted theater with a poster: coming soon If I hold you too tightly will you s...

    did you have anything else to say? she asked I said no, but oh I did I wanted to tell her of the love I had the way she made me laugh then made me sad how I spent my time in front of a screen ogling her pictures like a groveling teen how last evening we danced in the moonlight fed the swans a...

    I thought the world had ended when the fires started or even before, when the enemy Landed on our shores, and dragons swooped in Overhead, and set the felled forests alight. Violence abounded, Exploded in the streets, along with the bombs and the mines that overnight Yesterday’s ali...

    You think you’re so sensitive you think you’re so cool Well, thanks for screwing me over because you’re just a tool I can smell the air reeking from the crap that you say Boasting of your victory when you haven't yet entered the fray Darling, you’re just a part of the hype You...
