tumble

they break your body
and stream the games
they spit your last name
to cause you pain
they meme the inane
to chase the vain
tumble and fall
we tremble
at the absurdity
of it all
end of the beginning
the start of the new
it’s hard to chose
when we all lose

haunted

i saw you wishing wonder why i can’t go far
i walked right up to you as if this were a bar
you’ve haunted my memories
like a vr simulation of my failures
we woke up too late to pretend we were asleep
we thought our poetry kept an iambic beat
i remember the moments in time
like a friendly frozen smile plastered on a politician’s face
can we relive our greatness or do we masturbate?

similar

i sit in my youth
bathing in a monolithic moment
similar to those we left behind
but never ending smiles
is there a phrase or forgotten accent
to remind us of how it could have been
moment trapped in a breath
sighs that meant more than you pretend
red dwarfed sighs smiles without you
similar smirks smiled in tune

dryer

we did the best we could
when you walk in wet
to aspire to be dryer
so you walked in the dryer
and we turned it on
you were right all along
you can’t dry a person
even if they’re wet
so we got you out
toweled you down
put back on your clothes
and sent you to town.

paramedic

paramedic heal me
my child has stolen my jas da vivre
i there a moment in time
when i’ll get a breath
before i die
no seconds left
children are a stark reminder of the transience of time
you count your days in their moments
their hours in your seconds
their years in your sighs
the moment passes too fast
and they steal your life

artificial

artifice is art
the artificial compares to
reality
the cared out moments of our lives
to smiles so fleeting
the pain too painful
how we reflection a reflection
of what we want to be
scapegoating scapegoat me
envelope me in pain in misery
a smile too little a frown too brown

a broken back sound turn upside-down

adapted

white man white man
can you here me calling
i’m subjected to an objectification
and the ramifications
to the realizations
that we’re all pretty much the same
absorb me
adapted to the family tree
take me in
spit me out
when it gets too real
accept me once again
if you need my mass appeal

premium

i’ve forgotten why
the words aren’t quite
quiet enough
to fill my ears
is there a smile
or a framed frown
a cherished moment
hung upsidedown
are you no better
than a premium
because i’m cheaper
and i’m staying mum

wish not want not
the price of fame
is famine
the change
charged charge card
premium pay for
priceless pretty faced
timeless
a broken break back borderline
personality
whatever it takes
whatever we can do
to make your dreams come true

cinema

turn me
turn me on
spool me in
take me out
run me til i’m cliche
unending fairytale
respite reminder of
times goes by
cinema expose me
play me over again
over expose me
rehash repeat replete
with popcorn

backdrop

the subtext contextualized
refrain remains unchanged
the backdrop
continues to drip
the motionless emotion
ripped to bits
never one for sentiment
the words forgotten
lost to time
at last

controller

the only way you can truly understand them
is when you are no longer scared of them
they’re just like us
controller spoken word
pray to the gods
of division
obsession
like a religion
it’s all the same
now that we’re so different

stats

it’s just another series of numbers
a strictly straight non linear
a cold case
a lost debate
it’s strange
the pain
remains unchanged
no matter how much we analyze it
stats keep coming back
you’re the same

quick

speed it up
make up your mind
isn’t romo for contemplation
condemnation
relaxation
your intuition
is inertia
think quick
quick ish
pace it fast
make it now
things have never been easier
than when they all fall apart

swaying

the words don’t come so easily
a relaxing moment
stretched into eternity
a pause for thought
a life long ambition
swaying back and forth
through the dimly lit
synapses, neurons
a total blank
turns my more on.

little one
eyes unworn
swaying back and forth
in your mother’s arms
a quite quiet calm
a louder than life
first born charm
a love like nothing else
a moment frozen in time
the death of self

muddy

the rain slicked streets
the garden gone
the roses in bloom
footprint echoed in grassy ground
mudslide mushy muddy
half cocked
washed paws
ciggy in hand
exhale smoke
too cold for today
too warm for winter

qualify

am i ready
to move on
adieu ado
too long
ago
i no longer qualify
for anything
because i have given it
all away

cassette

i see you watching me
eyes blue, glazed over
a cough
a sigh
high as fuck
bouncing your head
not sure if to sleep
or to imaginary music
it must sound good
whatever it is
you pop your cassette in
press play
it goes away
nothing comes to stay
the change remains the same
the needle spikes the vein
don’t tell me your answers
when you’re still looking for questions

hey let’s play that song again
it’s full of life and love and hatred and stench
it reeks of all of your bullshit
it smells like hypocrites
it’s nothing more than a micro memory
taped over dozens of times
to make the perfect mixtape for
every time
cassette
play me
again and again

syndrome

every day the stays the same
the repeated repetition
worsening condition
bordem broadening
syndrome situation
lost all sensation
or realization
life is changing

swift

swift smile
gone are moments
blinked and your eye
the youth
the urge to fight
the moments lost in time
very quiet
very quaint
a smile played upon my face
as i lost it all

swift smile
gone are the moments that felt so right
the youth
the urge to fight
the moments lost in time
very quiet
very quaint

ornament

ting a ling
drip drop
ornamental ornaments
dangling from above
a click clack jangly
earrings on a tree
sit quietly for all to see

locker

the close minded marathons march in my mind
the endless days of never-ending same
the darkened synapses of simplicity
domesticity
last locked locker
throw away the key
call me towards this
electricity

wine

drip drop smart lock
a flesh breath broken
in time
fingers flay the flecks of
femininity
aching back breaking
tempted by elasticity
drink drop drip wine
intoxicated by the heat
of contact
by the kisses in contact
by the heterosexual contract

gingerbread

nick knacks pound
on a brown bus
gingerbread gingerhouse
baken browned is their town
little sugar men with their backpacks
screaming
that was not our intent
as they entered the little makeshift ovens
they ain’t never comin around again

ringtone

i gotta woman
she screams my name
downloaded ringtone
she deigns to feign
voicemail left in my ear
red hot higher fire
her circuitry is inspired
whoever i am
she parks in my house
and when she calls me up
it’s sparks for the mooneyed louse

banking

the drip drop of the money
ching change
clink clank
out of the till
unto us all
banking tanking
the more we spend
the fuel we give
the bought brought
bough unknown
we reap what we sew
never more
and always was
forgetting frankly
were we could be.

money makes the man
turn up turn out turn over
reflection of what was once beautiful
a skyscraper screams in yoga pants
echoing tenements tournaments
wrecking ball
semen spilled
broken down
rebuilt
bankers keep on banking
as they move into our histories
cha ching ding ding
goodbye my yesterdays
not so hopeful tomorrows
