Your Ears May Burn

She was tall
But never close enough
to feel
Pretend is more fun
Forensic timeline pathology
intersected by blooms
and stray insects
French language labs
someone pulled the blinds
and one eye clouds over from behind.
Check your thirst on wine
not yet finished. Plentiful supply.
Good vintage. Regarde. Tu Attende?
Too soon! Why did you stop?
Real is better, son.
Salvaged scorn plans unborn
Get Friday, Friday, Friday!
voir the vore, Tame the whore
Take a backseat a while
your star is in the ascension
You will be reborn.
Into the same but different
A new day. Something like before.
A chance to prove yourself this time.
Before you scorn, the fire in your ear.

Hi!

In My Room

OI’m lonely in my room

listening to the gloom

It’s all so interesting

to me

 

OI’m going into town

to see what’s going down

In the store and on the street

Someone to see

 

OI’m not meeting anyone

this way seems so lame

Everyone seems so tame

In town.

 

OI’m not hungry for your

Thai but I’d share a coke

Bet your wonderin’ why

I’m single.

 

OI’m not in work anymore

I’m on long terms sick

On accounts of my head

not tick

 

OI’m not from round here

either. Come in closer

let me show you a map

of my home.

 

OI’m a steady sort of guy

I like DVD’s and Music too

Like Nerf Herder and

Weezer.

 

OI’m doing nothing now

Do you want to come home

with me and chill

a

while?

That’d be cool
