we were married once

you were my wife

now he is your mistress
so i have found mine

and yet we are still married


to a life of lovers

but our lovers

are never each other.


what are we? what have we become? we're certainly not what we pretend to be.

bring my light back


once you're gone,

you take everything


along with it.

so what's left?

an empty nothingness

a deeper shade of black

than shadows.

so please,

bring my light back.

i love you one

"I love you one, a two, a three shoobee-doo, I love you four, that's more than I can afford, And I can tell some day that I'm gunna' say the truth......I love you five."

and one day, i'll get to say this to you, LIVE.

when searching for a house
in a town as mad as this
bending ass over backwards
in a search of invisibles
and fairy tales
you may as well just send me
to a house for the mad
a house i'm trying to find
yet i don't want to be in
afraid of
yet sought
don't be mad
just angry.

a harmony of sniffs
creates a ghastly tune
of mucus and filth
that will soon
plague me
with swarms
of bees,
sounding their thunderous hum
about me.

ode to calculus

oh how i failed you
failed you so miserably
i know it was my fault,
but i'll still miss you one day.

i'm afraid i'm missing you

i'm afraid you won't be there when i get back

i'm afraid i'm missing you

i'm afraid you'll have forgotten who i am.


gelato clouds below our whited wings,
tracks treaded through it.
scoop scuffs and curls of cream.

enough about me, what about you?

what is this world coming to?

i'm not so sure,
but we'll dance right through.

you know that.

does it rain in heaven?

does it rain in heaven?

if it did

just know

that each rain drop

would be a thousand tears each

cried for you.

i hope you brought an umbrella

cause you'll need it

in this rainstorm.

we'll dance with you,

missed dearly already.

ode to a glamazon

Don't be sad
glamourous girl
your feet may be scrunched
your hair may be pulled
your dress may be tight
your corset confining
your stockings too itchy
your nails much too long
but the cold on your bare skin
won't be cold for too long.
dear miss glamazon
your image is stunning.
the cake on your face
the glue on your eyes
is all worth the attention
for which many would die.
smile dear glamazon
you're headed somewhere,
perhaps to the bathroom
where you'll lay crumpled there.
oh my glamazon
such the sight!
many have lost
such an indesirable fight.
you're the last of your kind.
walk tall dear glamour
you are but a rare lash
in the global man's eye.

and so the scissors make a comeback

i had been growing stale

for quite some time

but a quick fix

with a

snip snip snip

and i'm a whole new person.

re-invent me.
