Lost Verses

Three, Two, One… Thoughts run together–hear the roar of a crowd Wake, inhale influences, reach for coffee in that chipped cup Must run when dreams run long 8:29 is here, then gone. Moments jolt like random jets sprinkling the lawn when no one’s home. Stand at the door keep checking a watch How many years […]

Poetic, Photo-etic Rant #1

(Above: Playing dress-up for Hallow’s Eve)   Amusement Ride She keeps dates with old haunts. Curious, questionable! Not to mention strange… When recognition comes only with ever-constant change. Acquaintances slip little nickels into its empty slots.   (Above: An inherited potpourri holder)   Backtracked I want a chance to tell you how I really feel. […]

Childhood Media Influence Mash-Up Alice in Wonderland with NIN and Other Classic Videos From BG

This is a mash up of clips that influenced me as a kid. I loved Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas and many other strange stories and films. Below is a poem I wrote and set to a short film of myself hanging out in my old apartment with Ginger who is no longer […]

Spotlight [Poem revision]

Our hums collect, sour-smelling like dripping limes under dull a orb in the static sky. Shadows remind me of something sweet, puddles in your bed that felt the static cling to mingle with sweat, impatience and cool sucking lips. We become burning cinders, darting cherry bulbs that smolder. Lick a deadly smoking gun, the match […]

Distilled Dreams [Prose Poem]

Echoes of things forgotten in childhood cast from a mountain are microscopic stones thrown against winter winds. Life flourishing at the bottom. Consciousness freezing at the summit. Iron holds us at the wrists and ’round the waists. Sinking but unable to struggle! Like the nightmare I had on the hard basement apartment floor after mom […]

Poetry Shorts

Words on her face she can’t erase (fading lies) smoothed over time. Take a second look in every single book you’ve ever read. REAFFIRM EVERY THOUGHT THAT’S IN THAT HEAD! … What’s below the horizon? Why does it go on forever? Stretched out–gripping rainbows it is unable of letting go? Never reaching for silver linings, […]

Reenactment [Poem]

I was sipping sweet sorrow right through his broken arrow. Silly thoughts of sometime last January: We proclaimed our willingness to leave our lovers in padded karaoke kissing booths– Then, shared more than a glass or two behind frosted windows. I still see him whenever I please, but his pillow hair is made of dreams. […]

Vicariousness [Poem]

Vicious circles– living for moments between collection calls, envelopes marked: Urgent! Living in attics of ourselves, inhabiting tiny spaces in reality. Domains of potential in projections, plans and dreams are abandoned in the middle of long waits in the wrong lines. Fundamentalism robs old myths of their enduring, universal truth.
