 solve for when. swept by the artifacts of expectation. stained in the color of common thieves.  we consent to these minor apocalypses. unmoved by the collapse.  the world keeps counting. the shattered dolls. as we collect their severed limbs.  the distance chokes. on our stubbornness. slips of skin like blank paper. wait for the ink to tell.  we spend the coins that remain. after time has abandoned us.  listening to the rain fall. from behind the broken glass.  Copyright 2005-2016 by alcoholic poet ..read more

The Names We Give Them

she chased the receding folds. endemic conspirators of lust and ache. her fingers soft as she struggled to hold. the heavy corpses that filled her memory.  the beginning is supple. a lush drizzle of tastes. addictive whispers daring us to hear.  how obvious we are. simple primates in an endless war with conceit.  blunt knives stalking barren landscapes.  the middle is dense. all heavy bones and cracked faces. stumbling predators chasing barbed wire and candy.  she counted the remains of her identities. uncertain which, if any, were still relevant.  the end ..read more

Sad Poetry: Fickle Predators

 stolen names fail the surge. we wear the storm. travelers on candy bridges.  suffocating in our quiet epiphanies.  skin like knives.  screaming because our words are missing.  the chaos flaunts its colors. an explosion of choices.  the pieces quiver. caught in gravity's noose.  the obvious monsters polish their horns.  touch is a strict accountant. counting every penny.  as the price of devotion continues to increase.   Copyright 2005-2016 by alcoholic poet ..read more

where we are. tunnels in the throat of time.  who we are. spiders spinning solitude's web.  we stand at the end of the world. tempted by the precipice.  we kneel at gravity's feet.  primates strangled by evolution's threads. .  it's the world we know that undoes us.  touch's wilted flowers left to rot.  it's a pebble in an open fist.  a lie that lingers.  even as we confront the edge.  we can only know.  how high we are.   not how deep the bottom is.  Copyright 2005-2016 by alcoholic poet ..read more

Sad Poems: Gravity's Contrition

something furtive resembling how.  obtuse corners in long corridors sing out loud.  the kitten's claws are sharp, but easily broken.  the king's crown sparkles only when the sun shines.  something presumed lost. abruptly found.  the monsters have their mayhem.  the heroes have their blades.  but time is still that cotton in our lungs.  tomorrow fetches its pennies from stale wishing wells.  the maiden loosens her corset. desperate to breathe.  forgetting too easily how fragile every choice is.  the victims have their grief.  ..read more

Sad Poems: A Very Particular Arithmetic

how quickly our choices expire.  our story told mostly by strangers.  spun by the colors of expectation.  we fumble in time's empty pockets. searching for purchase on this slippery stage.  actors in the sickly skins of love. carelessly naming every stray.  daggers worn by touch.  dulled by years of friction.  little dogs in an oligarchy of skin.  chasing phantom scents.  time yawns. our lives a series of open graves.   waiting for corpses.  Copyright 2005-2016 by alcoholic poet ..read more

life emerges through a shallow cut in the skin of time.  bodies conflate into a puzzle unsolved.  the machine is awoken. coaxed by bone and blood.  the dead throw their matches. into vacant rooms. the hounds chew on their leashes. as their prey discovers its fangs.  we fumble over our maps.  caught in the creases.  Copyright 2005-2016 by alcoholic poet ..read more

swiftly time penetrates. burrowing deeply into existing wounds.  choice the reluctant narrator. as our lives confound us.  blood a stubborn piston. that drives the engine.  we stumble. our voices swallowed up in its relentless gears.  humbled by its power.  we calculate life in cuts and scrapes. and the frail arithmetic of love's timeless anarchy.  we know that the world ended long before we started counting.  yet we still keep multiplying.  Copyright 2005-2016 by alcoholic poet ..read more

 shame the darkness. it knows too much of our desires.  we are compelled by trundles of loss. uneven gods groping at the cold confectionaries of time.  the sugar melts. a sweet purgatory  tear the corner. scrape the edge. those choices race through us. collision after collision.  we're tender. all covered in lies.  we're students. awash in all these pieces. all our lessons forgotten.  strays adrift in the petulance of skin.  merchants of touch marooned in a disconnected world.  Copyright 2005-2016 by alcoholic poet ..read more

Sad Poetry: Fouling Metaphors

 every breath is a betrayal. her embrace. all its fragile monsters. like unsweetened chocolate and forgotten bee stings. casual gods. carving paradise from stale coffee and cigarette butts. we are an abundance of spaces. with no way inside them. we are a dry cough on the lips of eternity. no cure. only the sharp salinity of collapsing silence. the choke of time. all used condoms and barking dogs. the pot is always at a simmer, but rarely comes to a boil. she bargains with the soldiers. though she knows the war doesn't belong to them. she marks the path with tears. though she's certain it ..read more
