cold hearted brute
cold hearted brute
haven’t you heard?
there’s no such thing
as a second quarter life crisis.
the worst thing you can do
is act on your fears simply by
failing to act at all
because we ain’t stupid
and we can see right through it
but there’s always that
nagging feeling that reminds
us that we’re the ones who are
in the way.
feel the rumble of time
escaping quickly now
though not yet muted by
the absent whistling of the wind
which rattles the cupboards
off its hinges (ever so)slightly. There was
a soft glow behind her head
before they invented the fluorescent light
beacons of light that you could cup
in your hand till it glowed a rich deep
red from within your palms’s center. Embossed within
were those creases, seeming to state
with more clarity and with definitive
totality your future’s sorry fate.
sonorous or sinuous
is this just a sketch or a dedication?
Embarrassment often lingers longer than we’d like it to.
You know how unhealthy it is
Yet you can’t seem to shake yourself of it.
Replaying these moments passed is how we live.
Operating on the fact that our habits
are ingrained in our memories, muscle and mind,
You have to understand that
We are machines too. And just like machines
We can break.
And we make them how we like it:
Over easy, scrambled, toasted, and shaken
You’re too easy
To get caught
Up in this hype.
And trick yourself to let it go.
shits been done
shits been long done so many times over
over call foul spread them stick up them
holy mother fucker. holy. slowly wholly.
the flowers of evil ain’t got nothing on this shit.
everyones trying to do the same fucking thing, but no one can find the right way to put it
hard put to it. jingle. pickle juice. plum cakes for breakfast
i do not believe that you actually know more than i do.
back-to-back. head-to-head. side-to-side.
living to linger. fucking linger a little longer wont you
just trying to get
laid, inlaid by gloomy
poor old bloom.
catch a tiger by its tail
pin it on the rump. hump
catching air, in passing
hickory artificial smoke
tempting but get just a whiff
rub the little bump. not only
always a bit too soon to tell
heel toe heel toe heel toe heel
fake. fake fake fake fake fake fake fake
slip slip no slip slip slip no slip drip drip
piano piano forte forte pppppffffffffff
