I want to write something that would make Nikki proud. Something that would make Zora nod, or Maya gleam from the stars above. I want to write something that would make Dorothy laugh or would have made Sylvia stay the course for one more day… Just one more day- But I ain’t got shit good…

Rife w/ SpeeEeeeEeling Errorz or Mr. Geisel made me do it

You want me to be different but not too different that you can’t get the joke… You want me to be unique but not too unique that you can’t mark me as kinfolk.. You want me to write like they write and think like they think with a tiny variance on the same themes and…

Diet Mountain Dew

A Psychiatrist would think that the problem is the fact that I want to squeeze you to death. But I am well aware that the real problem is the fact that you would let me. A Priest would say that I have lost faith in God But actually, I have just lost faith in mankind;…

How to make me cum… a tutorial

Well, if you like Chuck Palahniuk you should see my mega library at home.. I’ve got Chuck, and Vonnegut and I just drink my whiskey and read…believe it or not I am really more into poetry than fiction because it is so intense…so I have a lot of Dorothy Parker and Nikki Giovanni… just amazing…

Selfie

I don’t call myself ,”ThePoet” because I think it’s cute. It doesn’t ring in my mind like Earl or Countess. It’s not a way to flaunt or impress anybody. You name me one person impressed by poetry that is not a poet and I will name you somebody who died in the 1500’s. I call…

Pixie’s Perfect Night

At around 6:30 PM I get a call from Bingo. (This is all in my imagination none of this ever happened)  He is telling me that he wishes that he was available because the carnival is in town and if he were he would come get me and we would ride the rides and laugh…
