some where in my damn office

He calls them

 “the pretty little words that come out of your  mouth”.

 I must correct him.

They do not come out of my mouth.

They spill out of my pen,

via the finger tips and the sharp edges of my mind.

 The words

are lost.

Because I write them down on napkins and

unworthy  blank Forms of the 1040 series.   

They are raw scribbles I cannot control.

I have to write them.

I am compelled by the sounds of the…

Breathe

Breathe

Now.

1, 2, 3

To show you,

to convince myself,

I am not lost

to uncontrollable pain.

I get more done,

I get it all done.

Re directing the super nova

right beneath my skin.

A solar storm.

Notice the smile,

I utter please and thank you

through ground down  teeth .

The smiles awkwardly find their way to my lips.

 I catch you flinching,

as I take a step in.

My body…

I'm making a book! Yay!

well everyone I have decided that since I work a lot with kids that it was high time for a children's book. I have so many stories in my head that its time I get one out . It dose have fairies, unicorns, jelly fish, dragons, a bit of magic and a whole lot of my imagination. I got the idea after doing a few water color pencil drawings . It inspired me to do a picture book. each picture having about a paragraph accompanying it. Hopefully in a few months I will have the art finished . each work…

de mi devocion

Gushing is good.

I denied it every time I did it.

Tripping all over your feet and mine

Trying to find the common ground

Between the slippery edge and

That lost place where we can see eye to eye.

 

I want to ask, “What are you looking up at?”

Where do those dark eyes rest their gaze?

I use these and other criminal thoughts that wander into my sea salted brain

to see you running on the sand.

Mr. Magic

There isn’t a voodoo stronger than the One I put on myself.

 Concocting  heady potions, in shallow caldrons.

 glimpses of memories,

 your pictures and this song.

 How I love to fool myself

 into thinking

you know these fragile heated words…

elusive

I hear the brass notes soaring and the blues singer humming the melody hidden in your name.

No worries, there is

No need

to warn me baby.

I’m all grown up

No need to tell me you don’t have room in your heart.

I’m not the kind that asks for permission,…

grandmothers

grandmothers are

to be enjoyed in the quiet shade

of a rainy afternoon

surrounded by the memories

of vaguely familiar smiles

posing on walls

and peeking out

from behind

an army of…

When pictures of the ocean make you feel desperate to get to the sea

Poem #1973

She held my hand lightly and led me along the dunes

 The winds whipped our hair up and around our faces

We followed a pack of noisy people dressed in too much denim

for the beach.

 

She walked me closer to the water and picked me up to avoid the white foam…

you aren't anti-social.

it's not that you hate people, you hate the people you've met. maybe you hate yourself for meeting them or "letting" them do whatever they did to make you hate them.

Setting myself on fire

when I have said

one too many times the things that are screaming in my head .

When he does not say anything.

and I cannot draw back the blood spilled on the floor.

When my skin has worn paper thin from…

Intimacy

There are dreams we share while walking

eyes lucid

minds clear.

The words that spill from my hand

compelled into existence,

The new born songs only your soul can hear.

It is

a

Secret language,

uncomplicated to our kind.

We make the invisible plain to the naked eye.…

into these unreal situations.

a thought on hygenie and soul mates.

while washing my hands it occured to me there are small vaginas for small penises. also it occured to me yeah sure there’s soul mates, and there’s people who are your perfect match for the rest of your life but there’s also people who are perfect matches for your life right now, and after now, and after that too. it might be a horrible thought of letting someone you care for so much go, but it’s just apart of everything right? another thing about the being perfect for right now is that i’ve…
