Circus

forget this fucking
circus
even the animals
want out as they
run free
watching clowns
try to fuck each other


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


from my wretched eyes

 

a quick

glance

from my

wretched

eyes

 

an angelic

face that

seems to

be defying

age and

time

man told

the same

god

woman in the

grocery store

today

 

probably still

in her church

clothes

 

but those long

legs and that ass

bouncing with

each step

 

i could definitely

see her causing

someone to say

the words god

damn at some

point in the

service

 

the depraved

part of my

brain wanted

to go sniff her

panties while

she was over

looking at the

tomatoes

 

but the clever

fuck in me was

busy over at

the bananas

 

hoping to find

one long enough
