The Temple of Osiris at Abydos

It’s because the cut is right and because the cut is right the whole of the universe exists on the very end of my emotional string, my happening, my being is nothing and within that nothing lies everything. It’s because its easy enough and doesn’t require much fuss and is a reflection of us and…

Les Demoiselles d’Avignon

I thought it was because I wasn’t well versed and I was unrehearsed or because I couldn’t get loving them quite right then I thought it must be because of the way I appear and their own preferential fear or because I couldn’t love the things that they loved quite right And as I continued…

Dickrider

I wanna go to the casino I wanna go to the art museum I want to go to a fancy luxury theater I want to take pictures of my experiences to share with the world on social media so that they think I’ve been happy at some point and that I’ve done fun and important…

Museum Parking for Bitches

Tapping into me at age 7 and I was spectacular I was the only child in the house then And although my mom didn’t pay me much attention I had three doting aunts and a cool ass uncle and they let me do whatever I wanted which was mostly read books and sing and pretend…

High Noon at The Tropic of Capricorn

Flakes of flattery near the onset of winter

Portishead and Jim Beam

I’m weird because I can barely see and my┬ámind makes up the deficit by making me over feel… I’m hypersensitive as hell. Over here, over feeling. Everything is painful. Beauty. Hope. Love. Is there a such thing as better anymore if there ever was? I don’t know anything much if I ever did or if…

The way the villain chills

Caught all up on it by brushing down invisible webs Dusted and swept up any bunnies clinging to coat tails Scratching out to do lists with new to do lists and getting everything done Thankful some was had and counting memories of fun Kicking it off to the side behind ajar Venetian blinds Scared to…

Smells Like Sage

I need to do what? Pull my bootstraps up? It’s not even 8 am yet and I’m stressed. Oh please, oh please don’t give me that bootstrap speech. My grandmother, rest her, child of the great depression used to run me that fucking line constantly. It’s probably one of the reasons that I’m in therapy…

Bonus and commission eligibility

If I give you some and you don’t get all weird about it and you don’t try to hurt me with it and you don’t tell your friends about it and you don’t immediately regret it and you don’t lose your mind behind it and you don’t start lying to have more of it and…
