Light Switch

I mean yeah We could go out but If we do, I’m gonna order whiskey neat and a beer back and then I’m going to find the Jukebox and play a bunch of Incubus songs in a row then more than likely, I’m going to be ready for another round before you’ve even gotten halfway…

Eudaimonia

I am a feminist spy. I am an experimental philematologist. I am a backsliding monogamist. I am a freshman seeker. I am a cannabis consumer. But if it all boiled down to who I really am and the face of my soul must be named then I am nothing more than a drunken bard… if…

Me and My Brain

Self Control is masochistic It’s frustrating so I drown it. I’m everything I ever wanted to be but It hurts so bad so I drown it. Misery is prolific Its painful so I drown it. Striving is pathetic It’s killing me because I drown in it. I swallow endlessly I’m drowning… I’m drowning… Its hopeless…

Ace in The Hole

Fascinated by my own reflection No idea who is guilty or insane Sick to the stomach by misconception No concept of using my brain Sexual proclivities an abomination No desire to take a midnight train Nothing left but piles of frustration No arteries open but the main Everything hurts and its all too big Everything on…

Drinking with Jesus

The Middle Man

If I lean a little too far forward And sink deeply into my shoulders My body asks my brain Hey man, is our girl alright? So my brain, puts on his Sherlock hat And flips through its microfiche of images Of the body, my body, searching for the last time I ever looked this way……

Mr.NewCastle

Hey Beer,  I hope things are well. Was it you that has been calling and leaving messages? I’m sorry that  I haven’t spoken to you in a little while. Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner, I’m not technically avoiding you, or anything. It’s not because you did anything wrong, like you think, you…
