A Mute Canary.

a mute canary/a phony fairy
a light switched on/with no power
a glass of milk/that goes down sour
I write to waste time, waste me.
I like that you like to taste me.
I love that you love to face me.
please god, please don’t disgrace me.
brutality, barbarism, death. nothing seems to phase me.
I’ve seen it all, except curiosity erased me.
an empty ocean/a hatred potion
a watch worn/with broken hands
a kid with potential/without any plans.
I like to try and write to waste time.
Maybe I’m just wasting myself.
Time will soon tell what I consider a hobby, a necessity, or wealth.

love (body?) mind (body?)

so swanky, so revered
so cultured, so feared
brush strokes the beard
she’s feeling graceful
she’s always weird
but I like it
if her love (body?) was a mountain, I’d hike it.
so buzzed, so silly
so careless, willy nilly
pen draws the heart
she’s feeling tired
she’s always sleepy
lemon drops in vanilla honey tea with lavender tidings, in her clutch is my soul ever residing.
is my mind (body?) the real one doing all of my deciding?
you + me = us. flying.
me – you = us. dying.
lie back.. let me move your hair and kiss you, there.. candle wax dripping from the clouds way up, we dance in mid air. a burning desire with a dead stare, come die. all I do is care, do you? all I want is love, forever. shouldn’t you?
