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 _____, don’t need _____

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

A drinking day

To drink it away.

Every bone with sharpened metal.

And just spread my skin / Apart / From horns to heart

magnetic retention

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.

hooray, hooray

about the living days / when you were a child / not this ghost / leaving your body behind / away away / into outer space

where the stains still show / the butcher of spri…

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

marshmallow fluff

hanging out / with the orangutans and chimps / discussing ipads and triple penetrations

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

from the fruitbox

so as not to get forgotten / so as to be safe and happy / listening to the inchworms crawling / and becoming moths / is the solution to …

without you, my little boy

with you / i am / everything good / smiling clowns / lions cleaning their cubs / diseases in remission / a heart in submission

with open sores

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


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

Cock vomit nightmares.

That’s fucking for fucks sake / Here on the isle of seagulls.

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

the ghost up the stairs

the ghost up the stairs / sleeping under the unmade covers / has been sleeping there for years / since your body left through the front …

even though you and i are dead

i only dream of you now / even though you and i / are dead / bricks stacked higher until / they all come falling down upon us

my bokeh was drunk

the dog was barking / something about love / being a waste of fucking time / to the inquisitive pink pig / who just took a shit / down …

and piss it all

drown with me baby / open the bottle and pour / it on down

human interactions / too much

and i told my mother to fuck off / right in front of my son / ruining his birthday / like a son of a bitch

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…

gold fishes

yes. that’s it. / open my eyes with laser beams / and your kisses / your wishes / gold fishes / golden

just unlock my front door

he ain’t got much going on / just pissing in the wind / and driving the car off / the backyard cliff

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

i wrote a poem about you tonight

after finally meeting you / in person / and then kissing you / later on / after the movie / at the end of this night / before waving …

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

just lie with me tonight

man / cannot love / but only himself / because we so quickly and / with ghosts and whispers / forget

flies on my foreskin

ready for removal / dissected and / castrated with animal teeth

dating site blues

and now my wine bottles / are emptied / three in a row / and my stomach / is rotting

merry fucking christmas time

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

No longer sleep

and under every empty sheet / on the bed where / you can no longer sleep

a gas oven to rest my weary head in

not breathing / not thinking / for so long / my nipples got hard

for getting sick

the wind blowing / leaving icicles on tailpipes / freezing the puddles

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

She shits in my house / the prettiest girl I know…

For the greed between each other

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

the pain implant

turn it up until the black becomes / white / agitation levels are at a max / the battery is at full charge / your life is spinning out of …

crashing through the atmosphere

i was a falling bird now / a man unable to take flight / i was without wings or safety net

the last roses of fall

this black hole is just pulling me apart / memory is loosened from fact / and sleep is replaced with nightmares of being seasick

the astronauts prison

side by side / whispering lovely words that would / grow into song / moans and growls filling the cathedral walls / with our devotionals…

and burning flames, they burn

this isn’t love / there is no happy ending / no story to be written / just a little bit of being smitten

of the roses and silk panties

the body is dismembered by fading memories / but her loving heart still beats me down / every time i think of her

whispering i once loved you

so the words i would have written / were only fond memories along on the way / to this place i now am tittering from / high above the grou…

dog farts

then i hear the wispy sound / of an escaping emission / from her rear

ringing through faraway cathedrals

i can hear their chants / ringing through faraway cathedrals / the voice of god / ruling distant worlds from afar

it seems the axe was the only gift you left me

that’s where i have left only pieces / shards and gurgling bows upon gifts / tied about the leftover hopes and sorrows / of what the …

the first born from our love affair

hope for you that they do not / turn against you / and devour your eyes / on the way to your heart

my meat cleaver is now free

this bucket of putrid dismemberments / these thoughts left rotting in the outhouse / the location of the mindless millions / the bucket i…

The naked alien

I can still read the saved text messages / And they seemed real enough

The naked alien

I can still read the saved text messages / And they seemed real enough

that fucking waste of protein

my heart / that fucking waste of protein / has nothing left to give you / you who whore the world / for the blessings that fulfill your …

the worn chair floats high above us now

soaring higher and higher / above the flickering northern lights / our eyes were only closed

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

you pretty little sunshine whore

shock me / you pretty little / sunshine whore / your blond hair / turning gray

so alone that the tongue has been chewed off

so alone / standing here in the ravine where / the water buried you under the dirt / where i buried your memory
