    Torso On Podium

    With plastic bag on my head, I filter out all the mistakes that burn my house. Fat, talking heads that float and laugh, keep getting fed. Eye contact is solar stare, I got myself in mental pit and with every reach I reach upwards, further down, the depth of the pit. Upwards is a...

    Stuck Or Barely Moving

    That's how I feel. These past few days have been brutal on my spirit. I feel like a failure. And not because I am but because I went from financial stability and freedom to none of this. I went from having a busy social working life to discovering the truth about people who I...

    So, Moving On...

    So. News?  On what shall I muse?  There’s so much going on that I’m floundering.  Sinking, drowing.  I shouldn’t be!  I’m supposed to be Master of my Fate not some puppet victim ingrate.  I fancy myself in control; a well-oiled machine, getting through, making do...

    Dunked

    The park now is dark and damp; sodden leaves and slugs squelch underfoot. An astringent barb in my nose from all the decay.  Long gone are the post-Olympics runners, the accountants cycling home from work on their new expensive bikes, in their Bradley Wiggins cycle helmets, and...

    I have so many little birds at the feeder out on my deck that the hawks come almost daily and dive and swoop leaving feathers flying. I am not quite sure how to feel about this. On the one hand the Sharp-Shinned Hawk is an endangered species, but on the other hand my property has...

    Yet Another Sublimation

    Examples of small desolations that end up as inconsequential phrasings, or exhalations; exhorting my glory if I disdain the doubt and existential dread I feel gnawing.

    I was hung, By the thumbs.

    It seemed to go on for hours Before I was undone. Festival Halls of people sung And clapped raptures; Roars of approval rang peals and rounds Round rafters. I was stunned. Reasoned begging, Appeals to Heaven – Nothing worked. Nor did my threatening. I’ve been, at times, a...

    Emotional Torque

    It’s easier said than done, and it’s not fun.I’m combatting insomnia with napping. My mood is snappy, and the weeks flash past almost before I’ve begun.  I’m up-front scared with an undercurrent of residual anger; I’m exhibiting bad vibes and my eyes are flashing a...

    Daggers of anxiety tonight.I seem to have grown a new jowl overnight; my slacking is turning to sagging.  I think it’s my smile lines atrophying. I should practice to the mirror in the morning - like a chimp gnawing, all teeth and sparkling eyes, eyebrows surprised – all my...

    I took a sip and I jumped the gun a bit and missed the edge of the glass as I was pulling away, Pinot Noir dripping. I stared at the almost full moon as I licked the glass to catch what I had missed. I am alone. It doesn’t matter. It is somewhat uncouth, but there is no one...

    Mindfulness

    I’ve got a ‘Here and Now’ *Bong!* app on my phone.  So far, thankfully, it’s only gone-off when I’ve been alone.  A singing bowl would be better - more resonant but less convenient - over and after-tones kiss-chasing vibrations in my inner ear.  A calm down tone...

    there are moments when words escape you.

    even feelings become vapor in the cold air. you try to take a breath, but the world moves on, somehow everything becomes a miasmic blur, and you forgot that there is air to breathe. you forgot to see beyond the assembly line of one-dimensional faces, moving pass you, leaving...

    Paranoia

    Trickery is what’s done this to me. Fast hands and imperceptible gestures I’ve missed as I’ve gurned and chuntered, spat and hissed, whilst staring into the middle distance and wondered.  When I refocus everyone goes quiet, checking your phones.  You think you’re so...

    Life As A Stream-of-consciousness Poem

    Almost 4am Here In Original Sin City.

    So I'm sitting outside watching cars go by, listening to Sade and crickets, smokin a 'L. I love being up this late.....being the only one to feel the breeze (at least that's what it feels like). So many thoughts running through me; so deep though, I can't decipher them. All...

    Cream Sherry, cheap hashish and an Epiphone acoustic guitar. Though I like to escape, I don’t like to stray very far. These days. I’ve got two handfuls of tunes to rehearse, get right, and it’s the night. I worked extra hard on the Sabbath but it’s a holiday weekend so...

    Reading Poems

    Crystallizing feelings into words, at its most basic, is like making icicles. Trickles of thought, trapped; the encapsulation of Michael held in graceful statis.  Hope is eternally frozen, expectant, dreaming away the day. Freedom is just a warm-thawingHeartbeat away.

    What Is It That I Missing?

    I have everything a 22 year old could ask for. No kids, single, in college, a job, wonderful parents and small group of genuine friends. But I feel like something's missing. Perhaps a bf? I don't know. I'm not one to be in relationships, can't stand the commitment. Maybe the...
