carnival

rides that almost make me vomit worse than the sight of pitiful patriotic people. disgustingly unhealthy food. dizzying low-level intelligence. ear harmfully loud music.

i fucking hate carnivals. that’s all i want to say.

butterfly

An old lady once told me, “Butterflies, they are like dream flowers, childhood dreams, which have broken loose from their stalks and escaped into the sunshine. Air and angels.”

walls

Denial screams of its humanity hidden behind walls of helplessness.

Denial admits humanity,
but, one reduced to
helpless infancy
behind the nursery walls of
comforting delusion,
in the hospital
of dispair.

runway

8.5″ by 11″ runways.
My handwriting, skidmarks.

below

I’ll always remember that last big wave…
of your hands off the shallow shores of my sea…
you soon, where a final blue goodbye bellowed deep below.

thorns

Thorns here, thorns there, thorns everywhere. Where’s Jesus when you need him? Like it, Love it, Gotta have it!

temple

As our eyes set,
high on your temples
my fingers prayed
in circles,
making wishes
before those
shooting tears
that fell
across the horizons
or your face.

beckon

I am homesick for lands I’ve been,
missing family I’ve never known.
The distance beckons.

obey

There are nights
I get kissclose,
laying my head
in between her deep,
soft breaths;
collecting her
exhale in my lungs
where I hold them
until I can’t breathe,

hoping my body will
store them away
in my heart.

collecting all of her exhales in my lungs where
I hold them them until I can’t breathe,

slouch

My eyes hung heavy,
stepping down their stare
case into a brewery
of tears, aged in
stubbornness;
not to be opened
until sour shame
ferments into
an honest
sweet sorry.

I’m Sorry.

riots

Our smiles rioted
across our faces.
Silently protesting
the seriousness.

still

My awe climbed its highest branch and sat still on the edge of her last thought that unleashed from out of her mouth like lions from slumber and traced around each body in the crowd weary of defeat, calling each person by the names of the dead people they always wished they could be, calling them to rise like our suns final morning…into a day that would end…but never again fall into darkness.

artistry

To siren lullabies,
grown babies fall gently
crack-rocked to sleep
on cold cement under
a blanket of vomit and vodka.

Babies who were abandoned
by love, or by hope,
or by their dreams
that dare not even return
in their sleep.

comfort

it was the pillow that seemed
to be the one seeking
the comfort from her face
that curved too plush and smooth
have a hard skull underneath…

just endless cheeks good for biting.

radical

“You’ve dived off the deep end.” she said with a trembled tear in her eye, “Society will beat you down & won’t let you stand back up. Why can you not just keep quiet and live a simple life like grandpa did, he took care of his family well?” But I couldn’t give in, not even to my crying grandma. I can’t live in the past, the future comes faster than it once did, & with it, change. To take care of the family we must expand on its definition – family is Humanity. We have to take care of the whole. I don’t fear prison or worse, I fear living & not being able to look in the mirror.

“You’ve dived off the deep end, you’re too radical” she said to me with a tear trembling in her eye, “Society will beat you to your knees and won’t let you stand back up. You can’t change the world, those controlling it have too much power. Can’t you just keep quiet and live a simple life like grandpa did, he took care of his family well?” But I couldn’t give in, not even to my crying grandma. I can’t live in the past, the future comes faster than it once did and to take care of my family i must expand on it definition – my family is humanity. I don’t fear imprisonment or worse, I fear living and being silent with what solutions I know.

castle

A castle is home. It doesn’t have to be grandiose, it doesn’t have to have a room with diamonds. It has to have jesters, kings, and queens. It has to be built of rock. But it doesn’t need an army. It doesn’t need a moat.

the heat off my reddened face a dragon
breathing through the castle ruins of your
hairdo that collapsed on top my treasure chest
holding a heart that has pounded my
walls my whole life, that has pushed my blood
every moment forward to find you,
just, to one day

hold you.

dull

my eyes
lost shape
as this sadness
dragged them
to the place it
was born

warfare

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words are worse, they’re warfare. After seeing how wrong they were their jaws dropped open in an attempt to retreat their remarks back into their mouths, while backup words stuttered out waving a white flag of “i am so sorry”, but the damage was already done to me….you can’t unexplode a bomb.
