All Over Again

the jobs will drag me over the down towns,

we are teachers,

but i walk back into the hell hole

and forget the things i learned when i left,

i learned to keep my chin up,

not to take you seriously,

but i am curious enough to ask

the kids your name

this is a bad move,

and if i can just say that over and over,

i will try to make better ones,

and if i can just say that over and over

under my breathe for the rest of my life,

then i will have the high ground

and it will replace the genuine thing in subtitutes

“Money Talks”

the shitty thing about declaring money was speech,

is that it let them silence the poor

a Hurricane Levels a Home

your lover crushed under the

broken structure’s bones,

what kind of broken hearts are we?

that we ask

“What have I done to earn this?”

what kind of broken hearts are we?

that we worry

what the Hurricane had in mind?

that we were so evil inside, we deserved to see our work shattered?

we are not so deserving as all that

Bitter Medicine

radio fuzz,

driving to the bay

without getting out of the car,

driving home,

hours on the night roads,

lying awake until 4,

sleeping until noon,

waking up as the past

comes home just to hurt you,

every minute your

future takes a step back,

you see yourself on the horizon,

just before you disappear over the edge,

waking up as the past

comes home just to hurt you,

she used to say “love”,

and call you beautiful names,

now she can’t stand to look at your face,

you wonder just how much you’ve changed,

it’s scary if you did, or if you couldn’t,

but you can’t be sure

you were anyone at all before

the past comes home just to hurt you,

when you met me i had holes in my sneakers,

now you’ll never meet me again

we had such pretty words for each other,

we had limber knees and we danced,

we smiled,

we saw things in each other

that the world turned it’s eyes away from,

now you can’t bare to look my way,

the past comes home just to hurt you

the next moment from now says “not yet”,

and we lose sight of who we wanted to be

the Sitcom is Over

return to the original set,

narrating wrap up,

hugging,

cue toned down theme song (karaoke version),

snapping/clapping,

credits with extended “thank you” sections,

 

cut to black

 

the buzzer goes off,

character is broken

immediately,

and leaves to wardrobe,

then to their cars,

back to their families,

back to their friends,

i am still on set,

“Go home Roger.

I’ll shut them off myself,

I just need a minute.”

 

my duck tape X,

scene 1, take 1,

“From the top?”
