Overflow Abatement

I noticed the bird flying around my garden singing ever so sweetly about how nice it was to be free I knew as soon as I saw him that he belonged to me I loved him so much I cut a board into 7 pieces just for him I drilled holes for assembly and applied…

Taupe

He said I’m irritated. I expected someone to do something and they didn’t. So now I’m in limbo, hoping the thing happens soon so that I can handle another issue. I didn’t care I was just glad that he was talking to me so I asked for details to keep the conversation going for once…

Raw Emotional Chronic Relapse State

He promises me something. I fall for it every single time. He tells me that I’m the one. I want to believe his lies. He says that I win that I can leave knowing that no one else had conquered him but me. He tells me only because I’m leaving, I’m sure. And this must…

Jean-Paul Sartre

The wind was sweet and cold. I was leaving my job and heading toward my car, thankful that the day wasn’t worrisome. My phone was too hot because I’d left it in the car all day and just looking at it, you crossed my mind. I wondered where you were and how nice it would…

DSM VI

People like me, like us, often have no choice but to talk to themselves because there really isn’t anyone else to talk to. I must tell myself to calm down. And a lot of times the reason that there isn’t anyone else around is because people like me, like us, have systematically pushed anyone who…

For the Folk in The Cheap Seats

If I always looked to see if my hands were shaking first If I always took a full deep breath through the nose exhaling through the mouth first If I always considered the collateral damage of my actions first then I wouldn’t have ever learned a fucking thing in this life or had a damn…

Ressentiment

  I very nearly told you…   About where I’m headed How leaving you was dreaded About how much gloating I’d done In front of everyone About how I felt about you And why I can’t continue And why I’m not going to connect About how I hate when you deflect About my heart’s suture…
