the original fragments
of continuity
become magnets
you dread to pull apart

how to speak the truth
with a language of lies
is a labor and an art

it took decades for me to learn
how little people see
being acutely aware of my own transparency

I was on what was called the right track
but I had an arguement with myself
that I lost and
every word was erased with every step

I will never make it back to shore!
some words are warm blooded
others cold
I remember that sweltering day swimming
dragged out with
the undertow
and no longer seeing anything but ocean
the Atlantic in every direction
swelling its dirty greeness into
into the adjective
which suddenly had meaning
when I finally made it back
I was someone else
for sure

I find myself questioning evolution
during holiday gatherings
I find it hard to answer questions
that require cliches
to meet others’ expectations

it takes 3 baby
you & me

I call you hellcat
and you know why
I smile when I say that

what I see first
is negative space
what I constantly desire
is a similar background
to occupy

is a renewable resource
there will always be
enough to go around
and around and

the day is about to begin
it has plans for me
another day about to be spent
on idiocy for money
with junk food for breakfast
lunch and dinner
drowning in fat
my spirit couldn’t get much

in moderation
has nothing to do with
the extremity of the life
and death
of what is between your buns
or hidden
under some miracle sauce

after decades without eating
anyone’s flesh and blood
I impulsively take a bite of
and all I can taste
is flesh and blood

time that does not equate to money
must be purchased
at the highest price
