acts of kindness.

Maybe you were meant to be
nothing
more than just a stranger passing on the street -
Kind enough to pick up a bill I dropped,
But who stares through my jeans as I walk away 

An act of kindness,
Kind of ruined by an act

The best of friendships, 
But we ship our best to other friends

Broken Boys and Broken Men

Broken boys,

They wake up.

I like to think that their minds are cracked

But only their skin can.

Bruises burn from my beating fists,

Outlining a dot to dot,

All are clues of miniature protest,

But these they show off,

They rename them.

He says, they say, they sai...

To bring customers in!

I'm talking to you, hey!

Darling! Doll ...

a wily plan of mutual respect
to counteract the hatred in this man.
Let's do everything he won't expect!

We won't let goads and bigotry divide us
- let's evoke what World War II has taught us.
Don't let's patronise - let women guide us
when he slights our mothers, sisters, daughters.

And when he flays the vulnerable with derision 
let's answer bac...

The Plight of the true Snow White

Her lips were red apples,

“Don’t trust lust!”

They called her a hag

Told me she had driven me mad!

“Kiss me” she said

And then I dropped dead

Because I realised my story was wrong,

Erased the ending they taught belonged

And then all I had to do was admit!

Write into the story and say:

actually everyone I am g-

 

“She’s sick, she’s just sick!”

“She needs a doc...
