Have you seen my voice?
Somewhere in the desert
carcass for the birds.

Have you seen my voice?
Dropped it in a bubbling pot
turned into white steam.

Have you seen my voice?
chained somewhere far away,
rotten in a morbid cell.

If you find my voice,
pry open its fleshy lips,
stitch it to my face,
never close again…

This one’s here to stay

Blood red petals circle a whorl of stamens,
Luscious breath of opium
I savor
the taste of ecstasy
spellbinding pact,
who made you King?

Sick russet petals and shriveled leaves,
wrinkled towers of plight–
or slumber–
impatient orbit never waits,
turns and turns
die another year.

This town is dead–
puppets on silver strings
masks on for a masquerade–
Eternal wait,      eternal stance
Stalemate till the very end.

I linger for a minute–
pretty little perfect holes
neatly pricked into my back–
Where’s my arm?      Up it goes,
Just another piece of meat.

Delusional souls,
dream little dreams,
the big ones always tend to shrink,
Prick, prick       why won’t it inflate
You’ve parked in someone’s parking lot.

we change like seasons,
Full throttle

a
murderer–
that people
never
change…

That we
are
incapable
because such
is our nature,
untamed,
always wavering
like the seasons
we see
so often.

Outside
my flowers
are in full bloom,
yet they
are
tilted…
no matter the times
my hands held them
straight
up,
they tilt towards
the sun.

Promises made,
broken,
made again.
Forward
backward,
an endless pattern,
another cycle,
wishful thinking
at very
best.
