This Fucking Sucks!

staring at the bathroom mirror,

washing my face over and over,

i step out the door and apologize to the line,

 

sit down at my beer,

looking to my right,

can i buy you a drink?

Smell Blind

my room probably stinks of scented candles and smoke,

but when i talk through the haze,

i can’t see the patterns, i don’t know the themes, i don’t see my own habits

 

am i consistent at the least?

i can’t remember anything i talk about,

and i don’t see my personality looking back in the mirror

Unable to See It

the future becomes a matter of character,

i walk this world like a stranger on the surface of a massive monster,

and some day it’s hand will rise up from beneath the ocean to crush me,

 

an insect on it’s back

Turned On My Side

spiders crawl out my ears,

like water from the pool

Imagine Me Happy

imagining the furious biography of urbanites,

sleeping with my lips pressed to her bare shoulder,

buttoning up a collared shirt every Thursday morning,

 

for the rest of my life,

pushing the boulder up the hill again

What a Drag

ocean tide on my brain,

cigarette dangling from rosy lips,

hand leading me to the car

Heavy Lifting

fresh out of tragedies,

i manufacture more,

 

i hesitate the heavy lifting

of my own dreams,

until my arms go numb beneath them,

 

i take my medication,

i shake when i wonder how to introduce myself at a bar,

 

and i panic about the alignment of my fake teeth

in the bathroom mirror,

in the reflection on my screen

 

tonight, i will nightmare

about my teeth falling out

again
