Cluster B

Yeah so, I wish that we were still friends. Honestly, I find myself saying that more and more to everybody that I used to know who suddenly disappeared. I suspect that in all actuality it wasn’t sudden, slowly but surely if I had been paying attention, they were letting me know that being a part…

Taking Stock

They lined up, single file in my mind From most recent to the oldest, waiting patiently for their turn to speak when asked to describe being with me. The monster would say She’s a little crazy, a little gullible but useful. He never loved me though… Old Faithful would say She has no capacity for…

You know how much I love it when you beg. You’re hurting me with this now so pretend to care just a lil… If there is a hell I’m going because of you. You don’t even need me for this anymore so you’re being incredibly cruel. I don’t want to tell you to fuck off…

On the 153rd Juneteenth

He doesn’t know that I picked him because he is beautiful and manipulative like my mother. I picked him because he is brilliant and distant like my father. I picked him because like my parents he ignores me. It doesn’t matter that he’s just your garden variety white boy. For him and for them, I…

Bruce Lee

A broken down Greyhound Stuck in Birmingham Chopsticks for Bobbi pins Nothing but hand me downs Babysitting at 10 Running through the hood In nothing but Underoo’s Mom liked being used Given away, nowhere to stay Molestation attempts fueled by booze God doesn’t see any of this Torture isn’t news Excelling at academics No praise,…

Drowning Fishes

I can’t write about me from your point of view I have no idea why you do what you do This means I’ve never ever really known you How come you can’t just say, “Yeah, we’re through?” It’s not your fault you want to keep the door open I’m obviously the one who should get…

Mop Tops

The Pelirrojo had the gift of gab He didn’t look half bad yet I got a parasite vibe and ignored it He was a bully and annoying And since I was doing him for my own entertainment Instead of engagement I threw his heart into a waste bin And I could blame him but… I’d…

Irrespetuoso or The Shit He Ignored

Everybody in this building is in love with my cosmic cat shirt. Pfft. Because people with my brain workings, when they “get better” they usually get a bunch of friggin cats, so the closest that I will get to that nightmare is this weird ass shirt. I hate cats! 😊 But cosmic cats flying in space are…

Glucose Guardian

I smell my hands after I touch you before your scent fades I wish you all of the luck in the world after I go away They crawl from the woodwork to take your place But no one else tortures me as good as seeing your face Everything I have is yours and he wants…

These are just whims and debilitations… I think you’re the charlatan and I’m the mark too dumb to abstain These are just foibles and exaggerations… I think I’ve had enough of you and then I taste you every now and again These are just vagaries and idolizations… I think that you are just as ridiculous…
