Contemptible You

You tattooed
my affections
with all the
delicacy
of a meth addicted sadist
with daddy issues & a jackhammer

your ink
a mixture
of nightshade & cyanide
seeped from your lips
& into my pores
in [toxic] ating me…..

nicotine scented swirls
& ethanol procured smiles
lead to ecstasy induced spasms

little deaths
of my soul


WAY WAY BACK

 

I hadn’t thought of her

in a very long time

and

she probably hasn’t

thought of me

in a very long time

and

I can’t think why

she would think of me

for I hurt her terribly;

I’ve long since forgiven

myself

for the teenage

asshole I was

but I still carry this

with me today

and

I hope that she doesn’t

and

that I’m as good as dead

as far as her

memory is concerned;

I deserve to be.

Cherry Pie Love

 

you are

 

tragically

 

beautiful

 

sitting there

 

doused in hunger

 

burdened by despair

 

hidden there

 

in the

 

darkened corner

 

of this

 

bakery

 

bar

 

café

 

nursing vino

 

smoking a camel

 

and

 

eating cherry pie

 

and

 

for the love of

 

GOD,

 

I ache to

 

wonder

 

who did you

 

wrong?

 

 


“No Hard Feelings, Just My Hard Dick”
I wanna fuck
the world
without a condom
Shove it inside
from Pittsburgh
to California
Fire a load
that could
cover a continent
To let everyone
know it’s cool
Now since you’ve felt
what I felt
Although I’ve been
mistreated and
overlooked
I’m over it
Here’s my proof
you self serving
bastards
It’s still pulsing
Here I am
I fucking exist
No hard feelings
Just my hard dick
“Infertile Ground”
I knew she was
a cunt, a bitch
a sexy asshole
I had a premonition
of an occupied
bathroom
Wilted roses and
bloody toilet paper
A feeling in my pants
that had to be let out
We went down
that turbulent road
All the way down
until the zipper broke
We made love
which turned
into hate
We spent wasted time
on infertile grounds
Felicity was uninvited
The only fond memories
I have retained
From all this grief
and perpetual sorrow
Is the sound
of your giggles
after I let you have it
You always thought
it was hilarious
when I made you
bleed from your
delicate asshole

she left

 

 

she left

ridin’

that midnight train

to Georgia

 

and she left

like a man ~

 

with only the clothes

on her back

 

I could’ve never loved her

as a woman, though

 

especially when she left [behind]

a twelve pack

in the fridge

and

the toilet seat up

 

 

 

 


all messed up in blue

Her landscape
was a beach lined tapestry
of overgrown ashtrays
and liquor bottle seashells
that echoed of depressionpills like birdseed littered her floor
and dandelion needles mar kentucky blue

in the corner a pile
of unused phone numbers
from men she never
meant to meet

and as the days fade
to darkness
she walks the tracks of no train
to the station
and waits


UNTITLED

If

love

didn’t

exist

we’d

find

something

else

to

fuck

our

lives

up

with.

NIGHT AND DAY

I dropped her off at

6AM 2 streets away

from her home. She

told me her husband

and kids would still

be asleep. She’d just

get a shower and

change her clothes

and panties and

everything would

be good. ‘ Do you

love him?’ I said.

‘ I will give you a

call tonight,’ she

said. And I watched

her beautiful ass

disappear into the

harsh morning light.


Moment

 
 
It was easier for you to fall in love then
than it is now
being a product of commodity
and society.
 
Then it was only a matter of
lifting a pen
inking out the words that didn’t fit
to reveal the ones that did.
 
A matter of conjuring to the surface
some small effect.
 
You now,
waiting in the wasteland
between birth and death.
 
You, wondering where has it all changed
in the seconds before now
in the seconds after then
 
You, wondering why
know that I too love you
but only for this moment.
