On Tragedy

…a haiku by poeticgrin, 8/18/04

 

Weed in a taco

Broken swings, asses, and dreams

Satan’s spawn inside

 

 

Rotting

…not sure if poeticgrin or I wrote this one. It sort of sounds like me, but it’s on Bryan’s b-day, 7/30/96

 

Sinking deeper and deeper

 

The sand fills my mouth

 

Choking my screams

 

But I am not shrieking, screaming for anyone (except you)

No one would bear the bluntness of my harmful blow

 

I’d knock you over (WOP!)

Lecture me of right and wrong

 

What does it matter in the armpits of my hell?

 

So I’m drowning in the dry earth that bore me

 

Seems appropriate, though I’m not sure I agree

 

There is no hope on which I could lay the truth

 

So I shall die and rot with it

 

 

 

Lil Bit of Moonshine

…medicatedlady, 8/27/95 

 

There is no halfway

 

You can’t cheat a dream

 

No way, no more, nothing you can say

 

Work is harder than it seems

 

 

Truth is a wonder

 

There’s all the rhyme and reason in the world

 

No lies, no time to slumber

 

Just you, me, and perhaps little
