saying goodbye in smoke

on this open sea / kissing me / so violently now

That makes me a man.

a special kind of man / a killing man / gun in my hand / rulin’ this god damned land

removing your face

you see / i miss feeling you / under my knife / in the summertime / removing your face / from my memory

I wanted to leave this behind

Stepping out / I remembered summer rain / as the dog licked / my wet legs / free of water and cleanliness

that meaningful sin

take cover, my lover / this book is bleeding / it’s the raping season

and i played it again

i turned the machine / off but the song / kept on playing / in my mudded-up head

from a million fallen birds

but that’s something / i guess / we can suppress each sing-song / breath / as we take our last one

watchin’ your soul depart

was watchin’ your / soul depart / from the earth / and it didn’t even stop / to pay the handling fees / as you slipped away

the perfect faces / resting with delicate abandon / on the t.v. screens and / condom boxes, / they are above you / with your ugly though…

landfills of desires

you have arrived / to the human world / let us bury the bones / of our forefathers / in the landfills of desires

a goodnight and spasms of joy

sleep dreamer / you are no longer / awake / a vision / a ghost / lingering lost / in this shared / good night

boots dirty with salt

leaning into my shoulder / and my right hand / squeezing your thigh / my dear / i miss you being near / to me all the time

night lingers forward

descend with me / for just a little / while longer / as we half-close / our drunken / eyes / to block-out / the burning night / from our…

you don’t need / to hold my ___ in your / sweet and soft touchers / anymore

on the carpets / there’s piss / stains / we only hope / is from / the dog

bury it in silk and dirty poems

just deep enough / where / the worms / can get / to it

“i want to die thinking of you”

but i just can’t / get past your echoin’ / whispers, / and the hint of / your perfume / that disables my mind / in our cold / bed…

i want to die thinking of you

just come on over, / darlin’, / my dreams are empty / and in need of / a new song.

where the stains still show / the butcher of spri…

buried there / in the garden / are pretty faces / rotten with / silvery decay

lordy lordy

heaven / is a great cloud to visit / when your summer is free / of constructed spaces

the proper place to sink

but i find my heart is sterile / and my cock limp, / both adverse reactions to living / for too long

just carbon dating

oh well, / it’s swell / to be alone doing nothing instead, / then being in love and living / a life worth more then decaying parti…

look how low those testicles go

take any piece of me you please / the happy toes or diseased / carcass and atonements / the flourishes dressed in skin / whatever your p…

that old devil didn’t even say goodbye

the bed this morning / was as empty as my / broken clock / just used rubbers / and empty medicine bottles / littering the soiled floor

with open sores

don’t forget me / regret me / fret me / let me be the sea / and cover your shores / with open sores

nononsense

my socks have / nononsense / proudly stitched across / my toes / at least those lucky bastards / don’t take shit / from anyone

the metamorphic enchanter

lying to everyone you / married / kissing everyone you / denied / fucking the aphids / on the side

in my shed you will find the shovel

in my shed / you will find the shovel / bury my rotten pieces / as far from each other / as you / can

that good old fashioned reason to keep going on

what fun / what sinister fun / grab the sunshine sitting on the shelf / and take a few too many so as to relapse

it’s only a line of blood

please make sure my burial ground / is free of common earthworms / don’t fret if there’s slugs / on my mourning grounds

i would rather just sleep or drown

feathers floating like feathers do / downwards and more down / until they can’t float no more / onto the brown earth / resting wit…

then death hit the brakes

and death was driving / while in the back / i was fucking tranquility / double-crossed style

i’ll be taking the easy way out

i am taking a vacation / but i won’t be going anywhere / i won’t be home / i’ll be taking the easy way out

to bury the bones of too many victims

to rip the clothes / off like island beasts / to spoil the virgins / to bleed the sinners / to bury the bones / of too many victims

merry fucking christmas time

in the history of mopey bastards / since jesus christ was born

bulging beyond belief

you have forgotten out of / nonuse / of your gut / of your cock / your manhood

as i sat in the shower

as i opened the shower curtain / i heard a ghost whisper / welcome to a new day

i can’t tell you apart from me

like all the rest / the million others who’ve been / caught in a valley of / remorse / for so long / so long / with no goodbyes

let me gnaw on your soul

let me gnaw on your / soul / some more / suckle on your / dreams / and casually / remove your / freedom / from your future

laced with poison and betrayal

the digging of your grave / was the making of my bed / the lines we took unlocked / the sequence that fled / out from the holes

endless fields of recorded answers

remove all the / dreamers / as they are useless / and skim off the sweetest / of after thoughts

together we are the weather

when we walk together / and i speak about the pains / of the changing weather / your ears are always ready / for more

i give up and it’s okay (the latex glove)

i give up / wanting your love baby / just give me a taste / of your latex / glove

the bones are still in the grave

worms and squawking orgies / crows with broken wires and / hateful dispositions

your favorite laundry cleaner

put them on gentle cycle / clean up those dirty / undies / and put a smile on your lips / cause that’s a gun in your / mouth

a thud on the floor

there are times i can hear the soft voice / whispering just around the corner / as if you were just walking away / to avoid my sight

when you walked away

in those nightmares / or maybe just forgotten dreams / you used to turn your head / when you walked away

ride that horse until the shoes are worn

this lonesome winter evening / i find myself / tired of riding this boney horse / as frozen gushes of air / are pushed through his blac…

but the words left no harm

the lines connecting our actions / got tangled and tripped us up / leaving bloody scuffs on our possible outcomes

peaceful and pink with lust

i want to cut your / face off and apply / it by super glue to a / horses ass / and call it make believe

radiating particularized / unifying earthly bodies / molding the air / into seas of / electricity

i’ve mistaken a few of the prettier ones

sold secrets / for the “joy of sex” / and unwrapped peaceful harbors / for dividends of illicit pain

wandering mental illness

memories laced with poisons, / ether and formaldehyde, / to keep them pretty much / alive,

when the creeping/the new wave

your hair trails behind / as the rope tightens too fast
