I'm from a land where

I'm from a land where,

Two girls on the bus to school is revolutionary,

Where we bury boxes full of our still born children,

'Cos experimental biological weapons more or less killed them.

Plus the starvation, and working on the opium plantation,

Whilst Halibuton gets paid to rebuild my nation,

MPs with hidden interests plan my leader's assasination.

My Opinion of the Christian God is shitty

My opinion of the Christian God is shitty,

I'll put my hand on the Bible and tell any girl she's pretty!

Like a homeless child clinging to a pipe for warmth, steaming

Flithy, but I'll give her a cleaning.

If you think there's a difference between Tories and Labour you're dreaming,

Like two junkies and one crack pipe they're fiending,

Besides all the power's with the cent...

Remember to Float

Remember to Float

They asked me why I do not fly,
I told them it’s not that I don’t know how too,
I just need to be closer to the earth right now.

They asked me why I do not close my eyes
I told them it’s because I see so much better when they are open

They asked me how I move so quickly 

I tell them that I am pure electricity

It’s important to never get too close

Spirit Animal

 

I can feel all of you writhing together

Pooling your heat

You are hot wires running through me

Electric as you cover

Your thin bodies wrapping themselves tightly

racing like  wind to a wildfire

You are covering me in flame

 

Dangerous animals are fleeing these woods

as you turn figure eights

creating paths of orange and red

trails of yellow to b...

Forlorn

 

Bring me someone new fast

 

No wait,

Bring me someone who is fast

and maybe together we can fall 

through these sleepless nights

like stars that burn out,

we will slip awkward, as we dip

fluttering like ash

we will darken the summer sky

filling it with heavy grays and whites

 

 We will become a flash of tumbling embers,

just built to spi...

I am surprised to hear my voice

so bold and sure of it’s self

as if it weren’t my own

 

and for a second there

I have to wonder.

 

I listen again,

 

There is a distant sound

of harmony and balance,

they are bleeding together

the masculine with the feminine

 

It is a song

Krilian Photography

 

The pain is real
I've seen it
In fact it’s scientific
It’s realistic
It’s true
each time you rip a leaf in half it hurts
It leaves an outline
It’s electromagnetic field still glows
It’s forever connected
An aura brightly burning
completing it's path
You can not destroy it

Vertigo # 2

 

Vertigo #2

With each panic attack,

I disassemble,

I break apart,

like glass slivers,

I am falling all around

 

There is a crowded bus ride ahead,

an elevator door closing behind,

5 o’clock traffic and all it’s stillness

waiting

The train with it’s voice letting me know that once again,

“the doors are now closing”

Vertigo #1

 

 

Vertigo #1
 
I find myself gasping for breathe
 
dizzy and pushing at nothing
 
as hard as I can
 
 
Each day
 
I am breathing deeply
 
anxiety attack
 
after anxiety attack
 
 
I have let you take over my days and nights for far too long
 
 
My past has once again backed me into a corner

Coffee,

Qi Gong is your medication

 

Medication makes you come down

Take it at 10am

Take before you go up

Before you notice you’re awake

Don’t forget your medication

Fire

 

I’m on fire

A burning bed ignites me

 

I sleep

so you can dream,

I sleep so we can speak

I do not try when I’m awake

 

What would I say?

 

I’m sorry?

In my sleep

The wishing tree waits

Postcard Perfect

 

Post Card Perfect

 

It was New Years Eve

when you dipped me.

 

 You leaned in for a kiss.

I should have known then that eventually you'd drop me.

 

And

 the snow fell all around

a sailor and a nurse.

 

After the war had ended,

she stopped bandaging his wounds,

he bellied up to a bar

&

the photographed just faded away.

Green Grass

 

Just so You Know

The day you left, 

it rained for three fucking days

and man,

you still wouldn't wash away.


So I prayed out loud to the girls

with more grass

than that green grass

that we used to make love in.


I waited there sea sick,

in sea of emerald green

swaying back and forth

all around me.


Just then, the air p...

Meridian Lines

 

Meridian Lines
 
I have been opening the meridian lines
Gathering knowledge 
Stretching the lines of communication like the marks on my hips
 
Gaining greater understanding,
 of who the hell I may actually be
 
I am collecting all the pieces of myself
Bits from here and there
I am putting them back together again
with tiny much needed kisses...

Underwater Creature

I am an underwater creature

much faster than yourself

 

I am smoothed out

by the waves

your words a thousand dull lead sinkers around my neck

 

 I can not hear you here

 

Here, I belong to no one, 

not even myself

 

In fact, I do not exist

 

There is tranquility in nothingness,

no need for oxygen

or cigarettes

 

Clear

Candy Apple Love

 

I loved you once.

Really, I did.

 

It was a sweet candied apple, kind of love

a legs wide open, love

a love that knew each and every one of my secrets.

Love?

 

Do you remember the night 

that I wrote testaments across your body?

 

You a moonlite canvas pale as washed wool.

Joan of Arc

 


(part 1)
 
Loud, brash, sweet thing
Bring me some water to wet my whistle
For you
Love only lasts ten minutes at a time
 
Only this time
The time is mine
So go on over
Lay it down
 
Cause all your cards ain't showin
And my hands are full
 
I'll drop this heavy load
When words spill soft and free
Meaning what they shoul...

Questions I Never Asked

 

From the hallway,
I am hidden
 
 I watch my father lay in the stillness
 

Eyes open,
he is somewhere farther away than I have ever been

 

 
He is fixed upon the tree limbs 
against the grey sky

and I am fixed upon his expression 
and all those secrects that he does not tell
 
I watch quiety,

Sugar Revolution

 


Be my sugar 
 
My revolution
 
Bring me fruit in the dead of winter
 
 as tears roll from your face.
 
Be sweet rebellion on hot summer nights.
 
Burn messeges onto thick leaves
 
and press them hard against my bedroom window.
 
 
Stand naked under the naked moon
 
Be raw
Be real
Speak true

She Knows

 

 

The angels cum for money
The money comes from sex
The sex is last nights million dollar needle
Baby's bruised arm can't bend to stop the nose bleeds
Or fix the drippy faucet
Or fix 
Or fix enough
to fix the holes in the walls
Or stop this broken shopping cart ride home.

Falling Colors

 


Pretty girl paints colors raw
 
with whole body
 
covered in wet white chalk
 
stinging the canvas with her strokes
 
as she bends in this hot light
 
 
 
On knees
 
you swish color up
 
lighting the room
 
song orange
 
in soft swift movements
 
canary yellow floats freely and  deep red

Some Times I Change My Mind

 


 Sometimes I change my mind,
 
but mostly just the direction.
 
I think I’ll run into the woods, the next time I’m menstruating
 
and devour some wolves.
 
 
Or throw cotton balls at the Willamette river,
 
just to see how truly absorbent they are.
 
I’ll make a contest of it,
 
like the ol' school one's of "how many jelly beans...

with their last forever kisses

Movement growing steadily within me

Just so you know, I've secretly been watching your stories.

It is then that my research begins.
 
Late at night with a pair of head phones and a flickering TV
...... I've come to some conclusions.

A Ribbon Cut As Red As my Heart

 


The California warmth has left my bones.
Now,
 old memories hang as heavy as these winter clouds,
  Again,
I am consumed by thoughts of you.
 
 Familiar smells,
 bring visions of your apocalyptic smile.
And I remember why I left.
 
 My bones feel that familiar ache
 as does my heart.
 
 Call me Phinnius, your trusted friend

Stand back
and let me rise.

Or each glance I throw
will burn through you
like grapefruit acid
spit in both eyes.

I can no longer take the heat,
I am dissipating like the clouds that form each morning
above the Willamette River.

Each morning they are torn apart
and left to there own foolishness.

Soon I too will be an apparition
and you will be pawing at the ea...
