Picayune

And that’s how bad habits start. You’re emotional. Someone notices. Someone pretends to help. Someone makes an offer. You accept. You know better but you’re not practical. You know better but you’re not rational. You know better but you’re not logical. They promise. You don’t believe but you’re willing. You’ve always been willing. Next thing…

Crushing on James Blake

Every time I see him And every time I leave He does something simple and strange To the inside of me First I’m nervous, super anxious, weirded out Then I see him and his face relieves all doubt Then he says something passive aggressive and I react quickly ’cause I’m quietly obsessive And he doesn’t…

Job Description

Perhaps I’m more than just a lover but only slightly less than a wife- Because that irritation that you need to feel with her, with me, exits life.. Perhaps you want me to stay, always, but simply cannot say… Too much bullshit forever wrecklessly at play- Perhaps I’m that awesome space between the two, in…

Membrum virile

My most furious of rages under his control My most painful solace only his to mold But minimal remorse exists between us two… I don’t want what WE don’t want to do- My dangerous ecstasies he commits to without lie (But we both know we lie all the damned time) My lonely bedroom has a…

Plastic Orange Popcicles

Savage Lamentations

The right thing The upstanding thing The proper thing would be to leave you and all of those predictable lovers alone in the past to history’s pages I can’t want you anymore even though I want nothing else- I should do the decent thing But I am weak… I want what the normals have, a person. Their…

898 seconds and counting

And I want you to delete all of your online profiles that you have set up to pick up fish And I want you to send me those have a great day text messages that you used to send And I want you to have clothes at my house and a key to my front…

Deadfall

Nothing goes away until Your mind escapes the mundane And you’re floating on micro waves Nothing stays the same unless Your body hates its place And you’re stuck in a stagnant state So when I am with you Every single thing moves Every single song woos Nothing needs to be the truth Because nothing goes…

Seeing double

He’s close to being good enough, we sing the exact tune He’s very nearly perfectly the kind I’d belong to He’s thoughtful and affectionate and seems to be smart His lips unfurl the sweetest kisses lapping up my heart But when my glass is empty and the smoke can’t keep me high I remember that I…
