it is like ribbons that later are deposited on the floor and disregarded. I felt a shattering detonating inside my chest; it makes my whole body quiver inside, shaken like an earthquake. I dont even know what this is anymore-- I keep thinking about birdcages, barriers, open up gates! or if it's even worth it? to untangle this ribbon of mess, these silly thoughts that keep plaguing me. ...

I would dance for it like Salomé; The veils are words of God, A Christianity. Once plated, I would adorn it with hyacinths, Photograph its features: Green eyes gone dull, lifeless--- Petrified lips open Defenseless; The skin is colorless. I would kiss it sweetly Like a fresh injury Or an old talisman. I would display it, proud; It would greet visitors As if saying, "Here! ... Continue Reading

Do you see why the candlelight flickers in your eyes? Because there is nothing else there. There is demise in the way that you carry your smile yet it is precious, a slight advantage in offering the sense that you may be an actual human being: a fountain of desires that don't require the glamour, glitzy image, a walking spectacle, smile into the camera, pose with your posse, a deteriorating image, ...

If we move, they’ll draw us smaller and smaller. Lines corresponding with distance, with the stagnancy of space and the contours of guardrails, highway-combed in peripheral sight guiding us, guide the eye geometric lines. One eye lives in anguish trying to trace; the left eye submitting to its own inferiority. Mechanical and misleading into the right direction, from leaf to leaves, hood to ... Continue Reading

In the night, there are fifteen men who crawl out from under your bed real slow with gnarled, putrefying hands that cling to the ridge of the box spring and haul themselves along, inching by terrible inch across the carpet, fingers creeping up and up, tugging at the comforter and the slack cotton folds of your pajamas. You've never seen their faces or even the crowns of their heads. ... Continue Reading

I was frightened by the gunfire When you said you'd be my protector, And so I followed you through The gangland, and into the sewer, And ultimately under arrest. The kiss you left on the side of my head was enough To dispel rats and rivals and all fears. By morning, I'd forgotten why Or for what we were hoping; I'd forgotten our reasons.

It was Saturday, July 5th, A cookout. I had been drinking martinis for breakfast When you invited me to get high.
