The Setting Sun Looked on with Pity and Disgust at such a Horrendous Sight

FREE WRITING

Tombstone monsters 
Manifest gloaming requiems
Charcoal flesh stirs, restless
Crystal urns are prone to 
Shatter, glass shards 
Decant into an inebriated 
Sky, gaping drunkenly,
Savors each ashen drop.

I have no idea what to write

FREE WRITING

My mind is a blank
shot from an empty gun you
flare in the night like a stop
sign for the stars I
detest circles because they have no beginning, no 
end, immortal and six feet under at the 
same time - Schrodinger's cat in a shape.
They asked for the world, so I gave them 
My heart because I love to disappoint.

A blank piece of notebook paper is more poetic than all the greats combined

FREE WRITING

I tried to write a love letter
to myself once.

I fell asleep two hours later,
my pale face buried in a tear-
stained pillowcase, a blank sheet of
notebook paper crumpled in my hand.

Pitiful Boy

FREE WRITING

Pitiful boy

carries gold-leaf misfortune with 
a self-destructive lust
for crimson bullets he clutches
cardboard medals forged 
in this one sided war with no 
victor merely because
he loves the way that
white flag looks around his 
neck.

The Bitter Truth

FREE WRITING

I chip my teeth on shattered dreams that
lay like tombstones on my olive tongue, immobile -  
granite pills are too tough to swallow.

The type of poem you would find at the bottom of a public trash can in New York City

FREE WRITING

She tore her diamond body from pyrite hands 
Her ruby lips craved no iron master 
They chained your Fauvism ashes to the clouds
Tamed the ivory sun with your feral dust
He turned his striped umbrella upside down
Drank the moon’s sorrows to a camel cricket concerto

I tried to run from dandelion madness, 
A paperback fool -insanity is a cartoon spiral.
