Literature
Free Will or Nah?
I'm not sure if I believe
Free will actually exist.
But I once did the moon walk
On the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.
If I ever have to give a power point presentation
On why free will might exist
I will use that moment as evidence.

Literature
Orange Driver
I think there is a market out there for
Self-loathing poetry
And like any aspiring young capitalist
Of course I want to tap into that.
I mean they type of poetry where the author talks about
Drinking too much cough syrup
and crashing their car into a gas station.
Then as the smoke clears you see him
Running down the street.
His pants bulging with
Mad dogs, Orange Drivers, and cigarette cartons.
Yes
If I could harness that type of self depreciating
Gobbledygook
I'm sure people would eat it up.

Literature
First Star of the Night, a Child's Mind
Eating apple pie,
I could see you from across the street,
under the rosy hum of the city.
You looked just like a daytime version of a night hawk Jesus,
With your burlap loathing and electric halo suspended.
I was mistaken.
I thought about the time I brought flowers to your father in prison.
We talked for an hour about Picasso and drank milk.
He never told me why he hated you so much.
I thought I could become that bridge between love and dead love.
I was wrong.
Was it because he never saw your bedtime Buddha face afterglow?
I said I would be there if you ever got sick of wading through that
Chrysanthemum kaleidoscope of disappointment.
I was a liar.

Epistle to the Lost
I don't Care
If anyone sees this
I'm putting this here for the nobody's
The no ones
The Loners
The Outsiders
The desert dwellers
The wine drinkers
The Junkies
The poets
The mad men
And the vintage alarm clock collectors
I'm putting this here for you.

Literature
Fuckfuckfuckfuckkkk
Smashsmashsmashsmash
Beat it bend it wreck twist it
Stomp it in with my foot
It still doesn't fit
It use to look like a square
Or was it a trapezoid?
I can't remember anymore
Whack it with a hammer
Bash it with a rock
No
No
No
No
It will never fit
We are trapped with this
Horrible thing forever

Literature
When I Lost You
I lost a part of myself
Someone died
I held your hand at Angkor Wat
I kissed you in Petit Champlain
I lost you at Schönbrunn Palace.
Who were you?

Literature
House
There use to be a house here
But now it's gone
The former owners are
probably dead
The only way you can tell
That there use to be a house here
Is because every year
The daffodils they planted
Still bloom

Literature
Ugly
I bought a couch today
Colored a hideous split-pea soup green
Probably from the 70s
With a giant coffee stain on the armrest
Ten dollars
and it has a pull out bed too
I sat on it
It was uncomfortable
I like that
Because I hate having company over
Hopefully
When people sit on my ugly uncomfortable couch
It will hurt their back and they will leave quickly
It's unsightly really
But I like ugly things
Pretty things are over-rated
I feel like I was put on this Earth
To appreciate ugly things
And make people uncomfortable

Literature
Six Miles to Providence
Part One
In a mid-day metallic dreamscape
We came upon crosswind battered
Dust bowl shanty town mystics in gold and purple shrouds
Bartering poker chips for herbs, spices, fine silks, silver and cotton
In warm dark places even Fremont feared to tread
Waiting for the ships to burn
They cheered a joyful shrill
As the destitute were baptized in the Grand Prismatic Spring
Beneath crystalline blue skies, bison and aspen
While buttering their toast
Waiting for the ships to burn
We watched minimum wage junkies
Turn towards the static empire Mecca of midnight infomercials and televangelist
With clean palms pressed against the moist Earth
Radiating hope
Waiting for the ships to burn  
We listened to oral epics of
Modern day pilgrims chasing vice between
Bright white roadside reflectors and liquor bottles
Beaconing them towards paradise and pay-as-you-go morality
Waiting for the ships to burn
I observed doubtfully
The commercial meditation of roadside monks donning Sanbenito
Amongst the neo

Literature
#1 of 100 sunsets
The canvas was blue.
A shivering milky way
Of swirling whites and purple applied.
A darkening phantasmagoria
Was closing in from beneath;
Melancholy rivulets
Dancing on the back of a winter afternoon.

Literature
Fragments Collected #0001
Balkanization of morality.
Pay as you go philosophy.
Vats of Tar.
We work into the night.
Monetize everything.
Waiting for the ships to burn.
StupidStupidStupidStupidStupid.
Superconductivity in iron compounds.
Slowly now.
Ravens overhead.

Literature
Affirmation
Nothing is declared anymore
Not even war
So we reside in a haze of ambiguity
Our doors locked and curtains drawn
Horizontal lines shifting slowly
like snowdrifts across the television screen

Literature
Echolalia
It came to me in a dream
It left me in a nightmare;
Disappearing on the horizon
Between static sheets of white
In the mid-summer heat
