Across the Table

she smiles gently,

rubs my hands,

turns her ring around on her finger,

 

under the table,

she has slipped off her shoe,

her stocking foot gliding up my leg

No One Wants to

no one wants to be your friend,

 

not since you tipped over in your desk,

spilled out all your happy thoughts on the classroom floor,

you nearly slipped standing up,

 

it wet your socks,

as you walked home from the bus stop,

your shoes made squishing noises,

 

your toes were cold,

and only the sad songs were left

What’s that thing you called it?

what makes more sense,

is that all of our feelings are constantly new,

and that we just give them repeated names because we’re shit at naming things

 

that is why we’re a bunch of fucking lunatics

on a rock floating in space,

with missiles that will inevitably kill us all,

 

and we don’t have an elegant name for any of that either.

Dry Me Out

i’m like a wet sweater,

hanging from the hook on your bed room door,

i smell like soap,

 

i resist the efforts to dry me out,

as my arms stretch loose,

and you out grow me

When She Examines Me Here

she sees these poems a mask,

but here I am with my scarred skull,

so deep in my own flower pot that i can taste the dirt

If

if i had hair,

it’d probably be on fire by now,

i’m so dizzy i could burn holes in

the wood floor just by breathing on it,

what could i know about anything

when i can’t feel my own feet touch the ground?

You’ll Meet a Nice Girl Someday

i hope not,

i’m not really a nice boy,

i sure dress up in ironed shirts,

and shave my face,

i’ll speak softly to her mother and moderate my words,

 

it’s only because i know she’s not wearing underwear
