i took what he humbly offered
and flushed them down the toilet.
all of them, down and down.
i didn’t care for him at all, or maybe
too much. i bet
he was nothing to me and he
was using me, too. that's fine.
but i should have gone with the
good Sweaty Hours 'stead of
not bulging from these
perforated sweatless caskets peaking, peeking.
i wonder if the clock checks on me, too,
and all that we despise about ourselves.
doth it keep notes of early ruin?
will it count down or calm back
to days i apologized to his knuckles
and the knuckles of his friends?
his mistake was sleeping s ...Read more
I think I forgot.
I am a writer weak without a good editor,
But let me tour you through out
My mansion of storms.
Don't get yourselves lost,
The shelves are pretty much
All sirens here.
They will eat you up here, gnaw you up,
Spit you up, and, here
Never trust what you remember.
'Member all that are lost are all that are deserving of it.
Child, are there merits to your meritocracy?
Isn't that the way we dreamt about, fixing the world?
How foolish were the sardines judged by the anglers and angels for their fins?
I have learned to make empty threats from my parents.
They are ...Read more

no answer, there is
just me and the barkeep
and he's busy, polishing
some old bottle
to the new pub
i guess he looked kind of
good, i may have had
fifty or five, but he looked
good and all
tall, and penguin-like,
busy as a man should be busy
built as a man
the tables behind me already have
names on them already
who would reserve them this early?
i never understood how
people point at their days, say which time is for

I once conversed with a woman so difficultly soulful, that even
Her breath smelled like incense. (The kind that monks use to honor
Their deceased gods, calling them back in endless
Effects and seamless attempts.)
That, too, is how she mourned at her dorm room, all alone,
With nothing but fog for company, some times the moon-glow,
Nothing but sorrow to share, and sorrow to impart.
When she sings, she puts all the world's divides to rest.
All the frostbites burning her insides calm by simple
Clawing at the audience. Closes her tunes into the restless,
Subjugates with a kind of devilish ...Read more
Glory be to gods at their highest– I am most high when on top of you.
I have doubts, too– millions of them, more than I can count in three lifetimes. I couldn't.
Struggled 'gainst the wall and the paintings hung– they seem to bleach the world with their visage.
Mark the iron where works combust, and battleships, they
Sailed right throughout– quite quietly magnifico, taking breaths 'n talkative fuss.
I wish I were as expensive as these scrapped works of our auteurs,
Even dolls, they are auctioned at higher rates,
Even memoirs, even vass– even decorative plates.
Do we all equal ...Read more
a reply to Kei's 6 A.M. Dusk, which you can read via this link. Yes, #Keithan, rise. RIIIISE. 🙌🏾
but you feel like a headache
Jesus Christ! Ease down on them seasonal metaphors, man!
You put me down like I'm some sort of forecast, but I am swollen, legged, encased and embalmed,
feet concrete and metric of spades.
We're all just semi-adults trying to fucking function
but I can't stop thinking about you and I don't know what to do with it.
I imagine your days more eventful than they actually are, while I
I danced with the dragons, and mighty we s ...Read more
The everards and statuettes are shorter and the blackness bright
Being this cozy made me think everything in the worlds again was right, even sight
As I whine on wine by the hot tub, the anatomy of flight
Ne'r been confident in relationships, sure, am just fearing what you'll find
Tell the beach all the sorrows, tell the beach all your kind
–Ness and nest next by the terrace with printed shorts and shirts on the fly
The dust settles 'yond the crevice, pref'rring chairs and tuxes dry
As lavenders filth the room like gas'line, moss and kite ignite
As I I beg to be wrong, as I beg in th ...Read more
Talking is futile 'cause talking is cornering.
We reward petty behaviors with claps, showy 'nd steady.
We like the good things but we like the bads as well.
Act as rebels, as modern day bohemians, and dandyists on Wednesdays.
We make our own caricatures because now we know ourselves and how can we not?
Stress-obsessed on the plink tobaccuzzi, and it bubbles at the hoops of our trunks.
If only we could love ourselves like we love our talkie box and our voyeur veneers.
Loving ourselves is cool but hating ourselves is cool, too. It's normal now.
Because we are all aware about it, yes?
Lo ...Read more
He's mature for my age,
With intensity he can dial up
And back on a whim.
The ease you can smell
A thinking doily by
He never overextends his
Smiles to seconds, he
Could waste into darkness.
Dankness, glum, like goth-like, moth-like, om-like
Spitting at the toilet lights and caught
Up with the world I don't want
To have to carry the name of a family
That hovered 'bove me like citadel of self-appointed
Characteristically uncaring gods, I'd rather
Pour molters onto scabs insidious, I'm serious
I want a life lived inconsequential.
I want one less reminder of fa ...Read more
In middle school, we learned of
We hung around, fragile as we are
Ate our lunches loud and
Often we heard the blow
Off the chalk dust right back into chalkboards
As we deemed ourselves giants
In the making, the O'-so sillies
I hardly thought about the times when I couldn't fall asleep as a youngling
For as an adult, things weren't very
We lumbered into foursomes, into tiny groups, into
Did we do our parents justice by becoming what we are now? I wonder
And during the high days of the water,
And during the cold caress of the Fe ...Read more
