“Don’t Try”

person-451709_960_720.png

They’ll bludgeon you for trying
rape your persistence

the only thing

to hold us down
with their nostalgia
tripping from grave to grave
watching my old friends
my lost love,
lie
waiting for death.

*The title is a quote from Charles Bukowski’s gravestone.

Pushing Passion

Fascinating Finds

From frail to fruition

From fracture

To SPACE

And the opportunity of white lines

Consciousness is a leech

Bulging, benign

And every sober word

Rhymes with lost time

Thyme and sage, Rosemary

Lines the foot of my bed

With a bouquet of flowers

Because I won’t be resting

When I’m dead
