Sugar No Honey No Problem

HALLOWEEN 2017

Bad news
shaking
trembling
like a
leaf
let loose
from its
branch
She was
dying
She is
dead
I have
heard

“Sugar
no honey
no problem
dear
There’s
no pill
for this
ultimate
end
so drink
this
instead
Have a
cuppa
like Brits”
and
I do
as he
says

There are
no more
words
The subject
is dead
Contradiction
so clear
just like
my head

Bad news
shaking
trembling
like a
leaf
let loose
from its
branch
She was
dying
She is
dead and
everyone
heard

“Sugar
No honey
No problem
dear
There’s
no pill
for this
ultimate
end
so drink
this
instead
Have a
cuppa
like Brits”
and
I do
as he
says

There are
no more
words
The subject
is dead
Contradiction
so clear
like my
heart
and my
head
My mother
is finally
dead
I rejoice
ring the
bell
the Witch
breathes
never more
Goodbye Death
hello world

Turquoise Sky

TURQUOISE SKY

When you
show him
exactly what
life
looks like
if you
were erased
from it

The
hurt
The
pain
The
death
of
two
perhaps
Memory
imprint
Molded
and formed
Never to
forget
or forgive
perceived
slights

When he
feels
exactly
what
his life
would
look like
after he
erased me
from his
There was
death
to be
had here

The
heartache
The
knife blade
A stabbing
true
Memory
imprint
Message
so clear
Written on
turquoise sky
from afar
We died
together inside
as we bled

When you
show him
exactly what
life
looks like
if you
were erased
from it
Message received
We now paint
the sky
with
truer actions
and words

Twitter Chick

CHICK IS A FLAKE BLUES

Your labels
you can
shove up
your asses
I refuse
to wear
any of
them
on
most days

Twitter
chicks
and
snowflakes
We have
won the
war
that you
started

Time to
go home
Pack trash
and split
Book in
hand
Get out
of this
place
Fucking split

Twitter
chicks
and snowflakes
We are
the responsible
party
and more
every day
I absorb
truths
and tuck in

Time to
go home
Pack trash
and split
Book in
hand
Get out
of this
place
Fucking split
before
it’s too
late

You reduced
me
to this

Left Of Center

FRIEDA LEFT OF CENTER

Buses and
traffic
stop lights
and vehicles
I look
both ways
but it
doesn’t matter

Struck
stricken
Knocked over
and down
I scream
for relief
There is none

Red book
in hand
The impact
is evident
The books
broken spine
I broke
as well
and this
is what’s
left

Struck
stricken
Knocked over
and down
I scream
for relief
There is none
He ran
me down

Suffer
the same
fate
We were
both
crushed
The book
The vehicle
The man
We were
struck
Spines broken
and
crushed

Connection
never made
until today
We suffered
accidents
Our fates
were both
Left of
center
as they
say here
in the East

Struck
stricken
Knocked over
and down
I scream
for relief
There is none
He ran
us down
breaking
our spines

Red book
in hand
The impact
is evident
The books
broken spine
I broke
as well
and this
is what’s
left

Ghosted

SPACE GHOST SERIES

No message
Not one
visual call
Not a word
There’s nothing
at all
I missed
our conversations
at first
as we
became
past tense
to each
A mere reference
between thoughts
A footnote
at best
I’m dead
white noise
to him now

Blank nothingness
Listless hours
on end
Reduced to
pixels
and
screen grabs
I’m ghosted
Now severed
clean halves

No balls
in the air
that concern
me
I float
out here
observing
my lonely
planetary
singular
existence
starker
than ever
before

I blot
this stain
out
Don’t see
his face
anymore
as I
encountered
the spine
of a jellyfish
It didn’t
exist
We faded
and became
only dew
on grass blades

Skip the
answers
None given
I forgot the
question
What was it?
No matter
We were
only pixels
screen grabs
and headshots
on screens

Blank nothingness
Listless hours
on end
Reduced to
pixels and
screen grabs
I’m ghosted
forever
perhaps
Now severed
clean halves

His fear
turned me
off
An odor
detected
from the
distance
of L2
A switch
flipped inside
my head
I turned
him off
to see
clearly
all flaws
in
us both

No balls
in the air
that concern
me
I float
out here
observing
my lonely
planetary
singular
existence
starker
than ever
before
I am alone
without him

My existence
is nil
Once ghosted
you’re gone
Ascension is
Hell above
Planet X
We are not
one plus one
The equation
was
linear distance
The problem
is solved

RATHER BE

RATHER BE

I’D RATHER
BE HIGH
AS A KITE
THAN
LIVE WITH
YOUR LIES
AND
YOUR HATE

CHECK IN
GET A ROOM
PLEASE
CHECK OUT
DON’T
SAY
ONE WORD
TV SWITCHED
OFF
WHY AM
I HERE?

I’D RATHER
BE HIGH
AS A KITE
THAN
LIVE AND
BE PUNISHED
BY
YOUR WORDS
OF HATE
THAT
CONQUER
AND DIVIDE
US LIKE
CELLS IN
A DISH

CALL ME
AGAIN
AND I’LL
SCREAM
STOP
TRACKING
ME DOWN
YOU CANNOT
WIN
THIS ONE
A FACT
YOU’LL TAKE
TO YOUR
GRAVE
I COUNT
ON IT

YOU’LL NEVER
HEAR
MY VOICE
AGAIN
LIVE WITH
THIS
IF
YOU CAN
WELL
YOU MUST
EVERYONE
KNOWS
WHAT YOU’VE
DONE

I’D RATHER
BE HIGH
AS A KITE
YOU MAKE
MY SKIN
CRAWL
YOU WON’T
TOUCH ME
AGAIN
DON’T EVEN
TRY
FINALLY
THERE IS
BLUE SKY
AND
NEW LIFE
NOW THAT
YOU’RE GONE

Zombie So Wrong

SO WRONG THIS ZOMBIE

I am
life
reborn
I pray
to the
God’s
I am
alive
I hear
only sound
Kneel, get
on the ground

Earth has
a new hue
Sepia tones
three
The color
has
drained
from the
world

We are
life
reborn
We pray
to the
God’s above
We are
alive
We hear
only sound
The color
is gone
Our stomach’s
growl

Earth has
a new hue
Sepia tones
three
The color
has
drained
from the
world
Everything’s
wrong
and I’m
sure you
feel it
hear it
see it
Assume
the position

Get down
on your knees
and pray
hard
We have arisen
We are alive
and yet
not
Are you
hungry like
I am?

How long
have we
been
starving?
Did you
pray to God?

Earth has
a new hue
Sepia tones
three
The color
has
drained
from the
world and
we eat
