there are no promises that can be kept
by gift we live by right we die
grace is optional
except when it’s not
the grace to bear grief
is sometimes always never
the only prayer there is
in these hot, breathless last days, it’d do us to get on with the praying
sooner than later
I do not let tears well
That will come later
After the worst
Whatever it is
Always goes one way or the other
There will be a ring
Strangers will answer
I said it’s time for tragedy
And one is here
a return to form says the review in the paper
as if today has a bearing on some yesterday long forgotten
the form is beside the point
the return a curse rewritten
something tired and already said
a curse rewritten and best left unread
I stand on my feet all day hard on my luck I walk to the perimeter of my existence sometimes to get away from it all the long days stretch out like the green fields beyond the wire
But the wire wins every time.
who would choose the fate of fire
the apathy of plunge
blade for blood
in the face of death
some of us shine
as if destruction was our calling
A word, self-righteous angel
If you write the Anthology of You
There are consequences
It’s time to drink down the medicine:
If you play with Ouija
Don’t complain about the smell of dead people
college professor that he was
It’s called climate change, not global warming
Some places get colder
I’m getting colder
My seas are rising
and my summers are shortening
The end of summer came a month earlier each year, 2008-2010
August -> July -> June
2008 -> 2009 -> 2010
Next year, there might not be a summer at all
In Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now,” one of the lyrics goes, “oh I’d rather feel something than nothing at all.” Well, then. Clearly, they’ve never felt the peace of feeling nothing at all because although not a pleasant experience, if you can get that numb, it’s something that one really would prefer at times, especially during breakups.
They need to get a little dead inside.
Nails down to the quick
I’ve made them weak
with my neglect
I should have listened to the wives’ tales
I’m without talon to pick or perch
and it will take more time than I’ve got
to make them right again
I am consistent.
I at least have that going for me.
I have a thing for buying high heels that are too tall for me.
I have a thing for inappropriateness.
I tell myself that I will wear them in my house to break them in, learn how to walk in them, and firm my ass.
I buy them in unreasonable colors.
I do not have grape anywhere in my wardrobe.
I still felt compelled to buy the beige and grape high heels yesterday.
I noticed too late the right shoe was a size 6.5 and the left was a 6.
I figured this figured.
