come and be blinded.

There is more light

than you

can ever see
from your darkened lair.

Chemical Castration(a poem, musing)

Chemical Castration?
Chemical Castration.
Know they put it in my food.
C'mon Mike.
Run the wheels off that thing.

while i died lying.

while I died lying
she stood,
back to the water,
watching the camera,
the camera ever
loving her all over.

I was sinking down,
having come so far,
but further still remained.
Her little white tennis shoes
were before my eyes.
What a thing
to last see-
a lifetime and then this.

I sure thought a lot
in those ultimate moments
and all the while
I was convinced
she was like a brick,
unthinking,
but how wrong!
How ever wrong!

She would make
a picturebook ensconced
in lace and roses
remembering the big water,
while I was gone
and forgotten.

children now play where nightmares once crept.

concentration camp
quaker state oil change
tire and lube express:
realm of nightmares
feelings hostile

now fences,
broken down with age,
the prisoners freed in death,
children creep in,
like the nightmares once crept,
and the children make their game,
in the broken dusky thoroughfare.

my thinking and cranking

When I hit the wall,
my brain, out, plopped.
My thinking
and cranking
for a while
stopped.

Dying in a daydream,
living in a wish,
there on the ground,
my brain,
flop flopping,
like a fish.

Air Pudding: a spit of revenge and vindictation.

Air Pudding
destroyed the roller skating rink
only because
they first laughed at him.

Then he laughed
as they cried
because of their
lonely weekend nights.

No more rental skates.
No more popcorn.
No more cotton candy.
No more Jackson Five on the box.

Air Pudding thought
he who laughed last
you know?

friends forever

you were watching
that grumpy cat
while my soul collapsed

you had a hot date
with a crazy redhead
when I was afraid to leave home

called me crazy
when they run me crazy
said "watch this"

denied it
forgot it

babysweet put bugs on me
made a study of me
an interesting case
see what he can take
before he falls

years lost
