Forever or A Day

My life is forever juxtaposed
By the splinter of a
Man Made America

My sheep skin
Banana peels off my body,
As it dries like a raisin in the sun of a cotton field

My innocent impending tragic life dangles
On the balls of my poptart yearning body

Lollipop stolen by the dog next door
From the mouth of a teenager relaxing on the phone

My life is forever
Just one penis away
From being sweet and sour, as a pineapple,
Rabbit fucked by a “supposed to be seemingly harmless man”

A vigorous struggle
Of looking over my shoulder
And knowing the world steadily gets colder

My life will never be forever

Hello Kind Policeman

I don’t want to be token
Because then I am taken for granted
I don’t want to the majority
Because then I am a major threat
I want to live
Because I can’t breathe

Red white and blue sirens
Strangle me
Multiplying my fears
Subtracting my brothers and sisters
Dividing us by means of approach
Adding on brutality

You do the math
What’s the problem for us both?

Happy New Year

Cheers,
let us toast to another year of brutality
where the weather is bi-polar
and the law is wrongfully enforced

Cheers to another year of hidden, not-so-subtle racism slithering into our next year
Can’t you hear the voice from the graves?
They’re shouting “I can’t breathe”
in lustful harmonies

Cheers,
let us toast to all the moments of silence
Where everyone is waiting for the apocalypse
and no one is picking up the bodies

Cheers to another year of Amurica

I’d Like You To Know

I would like you to know
that I almost hate you
almost-as in
“You’ve got approximately 42 seconds to respond
to my text”
As in, you’ve got 1/2 a strike left
As in, I wish you weren’t such a fucking mess

I would like you to know
that the door is over yonder
Over yonder- as in
I’m over and under wandering and wondering
of you
As in, I will hold the door open for you
As in, you walk through anytime you please to

I would like you to know
that I would like you
but  I almost hate you…

Save My Soul

“Feed my heart
Save my soul
Turn my falling tears
to gold.”

Feed my heart
entice my passions
eliminate my fears
fill me up, baby

Save my soul
from the depths of non-forgiving
from the heights of constant precipitation
sell my insecurities to the fire below

Turn my falling tears
into puffy clouds to adorn the sun
into the almighty essence of happiness-
to gold.

Save. My. Soul

Deja Vu

O’ History O’History
You’re such a mystery
Who’s timeline continues
to circulate
and reiterate itself

History, I told you
“I am done with this!”
“Yeah, I know I know but…”
History smiles a wide
toothy grin

And there you are
back on my screen
calling me
O’ History O’History
You’re such a grave mystery
