Dead are the daisies in their
bodies withered –
He of all that milksop dew
how feckless plays his drifters tune.
I wait, how bitter thin I am bitten
as low blows my lovers prodigy.
Left redundant, sea beach stranded
scuttles the storm, on brown paper folded
Dreams are not dealers trinkets
traded to soothe the belief of hungers bite.
I sat you down high tide ebbing
glass bones, inconsequential thoughts
melding to rise –
now hurled upon some other shore.

He drinks heavily
gaining body over soul –
She has long witnessed his rejection
her tramlines narrowing daily.
Fear is such a time old parasite
studied keenly on how to lead the weak astray.
Always, he offers up his words of incantation
then flips the bottle closer
to aid his way back home.
Her crowded mind –
no longer lodges his indistinct words.
She turned down his tedious apologies
long before, their bed became cold.
The space he laid, his once sober head
now belongs to someone new.
Oh, there is no other lover
to decant his taste away.
She has, at long last just
finally found herself…

I am obsessed crucified
on the ravages of my wrongs.
No longer balanced or sane
inside this retreating body.
I was always impartial – ask anyone.
Yet there is something exceptional about
the addiction of pure untainted powder
left dressed, in virginal white lines.
My nose has long been foreshortened
resembling a muzzle –
clipped back, to keep the debris hunters away.
I am corroding on my own intoxication,
as dead as the worm in this bottle of tequila.

Just to make it clear this is not about me – I have never taken drugs.
I shouldn’t complain
yet I know I will.
It makes one feel alive
in it’s puerile attempt
at kicking back at the establishment:
Like punching poor Judy
when the fault isn’t hers.It was always something to let him go
to stand, and stare without speech.
All those deformities of the body,
now railroaded into sidecars
of no desire.
How a woman’s devaluation of her own mind
is always outweighed – besides
a mans conceited outburst, of his own
