Cosplay (Poem)

There are pills that…

Make you higher
Make you lower
Make you so fast and slower

Bring you laughter
Make you snap to
Realize you did something

Make you happy
Give you side play
Make you sit when you can’t stand

eL LiZARD (Poem)

Look how you talk to me
See what you do

‘They know not’ is not an option
I see better days without the sight of you

“You did this, You did that”
Is all I get from day to day

Everything is an argument
The contradictions blow my riddled mind away

Sometimes I sit and ponder on my ponderer’s thinking fist

Why can’t you see my Wonderbare?
My heavyheartedness?

Make Life Shine (Poem)

Count the ways
Count the words

Count the wrongs
Count the times

Oh how I count the things that gave my life a little less shine

The words I said but didn’t mean
The words I meant but never said

The times I fell and fell again
Then got back up
Made no amends

Harlem Get Up (Poem)

What’s that smell?
I just ate my vomit

Don’t look now
Here comes Harlem

“Excuse me Mrs.
Can you spare some change?

“Excuse me Mrs.
Can you spare some change?

Coffee?
A donut?
Some soup from the Chinese?

I’m hungry
And tired
And living in hell

Please pay the toll when you come where I dwell…”

A Little Dab Will Do (Poem)

A little dab will do

That’s what we all say
Til that little dab is through

No time for horse play

As we go off to the races
Which one will come first?

The high I desire?
Or my face in the dirt?

I Am Woman (Poem)

I am not a hole to hide your infamous penis
I am not a pillow to rest your lying head
I am not a pawn in your pursuit of dominance
I am not obliged to play your game of war

On Sabbatical (Journal Entry)

I hate the feeling of let down. It sends a post-traumatic sensation through my mind. Even the slightest hint that something has gone wrong is like the worst thing that could happen in my space and time. I’ve gotten better at separating feelings from facts. But the facts don’t hide the feelings, just like my right hand never knows what’s going on with my left.

My Kaleidoscope (Poem)

I found my silver lining tucked away in sharded glass Stacks on stacks of broken dreams, unfinished goals, uncharted maps They said that I could find it If only I could breathe If only I could hold my breath Fall on bended knees ‘It works if you work it’ The slogan of the day So […]

The Masquerade (Poem)

This system has failed us.
Why are the highs so low?

Just look at all the stars above
Flashing shiny things at the world they loathe

Slavery is so fascinating
It’s the price we pay to fill a bottomless void

The tale of the scared little pigs (Poem)

Once upon a time There were three little pigs The eldest of brothers was the picker of figs The second in line was the heir to the throne The herder of sheep and the bearer of gold The third little piggy was swarthy in kind… He shed dark that cast all way to the light […]
