Allow me to capture your soul in a gem

Which would you prefer?

I am not an expert

I know of opal, topaz, obsidian, ruby, beryllium, a few others

But know one and let me know

They’ve shut the entrance to the staircase with bloody wooden planks

They spit in my pickle jar and evacuate the bacteria from my gut

They clean me, inside out, so that I am dry to hang and hang I do

In somnolent days I see between the threads of reality but those are

Those are just the bed sheets above the lawn

Have always found insects in the bed

They get in my way with their sounds

No one wants an explanation, they prefer I be crazy

I don’t kno why people enjoy bad things

But I guess brainpower just isn’t worth it

Some diamond dusk days I shill with my father as he stands by the economy ready for a placebo earning

Who’s ruse?

In time the seems sew shut and I see clearly that I am a victim

Not much changes whether there’s a blanket or not

Warmth, courage, disavowal, in any stance, I’m here, and so are the customers

Hope they drown me too soon so their extra credit expires while I lead my own way to the basement

Or the roof

Either direction translates me

And then people might understand where I am

Wherein the Thought of Food Makes Me Lose My Appetite

Not to say that it shouldn’t, but rather, the direct approach is shunned

The naive approach is scorned

And honesty is a whistling bottle hurled through the air to catch some peace and rays

Well

Still stymied the lust for adventure itself is craven

One wants too much when want is all but too little to have for a forthright sinking feeling in the basin where our last home drained its wishes

Some say

But not one single one knows of it

The voices coincide with elder abuse awareness month

Please tell the elders to stop abusing me

Strength is only respected in an authoritarian regime

Respect is only strengthened in an authoritarian regime

The family kills

Things of red

Often disposed of in the wrong location

Some say to still a lap is to skin the pet

But which species are we today?

Which species are we today…

Global warming caused SARS

No one knows what I’m talking about

But that’s fine, just toss it

I eat healthy too!

From Japan, the heavy elements are indeed my favourite bande

But still, it sits

And some cradle and some stew

I have to fight fight fight all the time

I’m miswired

Call an electrical engineer

I don’t really know why I’m being punished anymore

a bad poem

Void, if fitting, to be loved in a place left anew

Some slew some threw but toodlee-oo

You know the stone cast in the net weighs down the village whole

Why not leave fish oxygen in place of meandering poison?

Indecisive/confusing, as usual

Let us sit, stranger, and hammer out these details

The desire to read into the heart for a little play time makes me quiver and I am stricken with grief

That such natural ferocity would be labeled careful

Mistaken

To say the least

He owns his system, so do I

Never said he’s gonna do it again

The people with the facts are as dangerous as the facts with the people

So sit down, have a cup of coffee, and continue
