Socio

‘Couple miles down the road You’ll find a messed up little cabin Where a man made his sin And there’s a story to be told Baby, please don’t cry! Oh baby, please don’t die! Well, it was pretty cold that night. Snow came raining down. Her car’d stopped. No rescue found. ‘Till he found her…

Bella Donna

Sweet sweet poison pours from your lips to mine As life spills from me I find my regrets where they still lie, In your eyes as mine begin to shine. Why, my Bella Donna, Why? Blooming so young is never a wise thing to do, Dear sweet Bella- If you never meant to hurt me…

Time’s a Funny Thing, Part 5

The waiter pukes into a couple of glasses as we enter the bar. Hannah downs the whole thing in one gulp and they both look at me expectantly. She frowns- ‘Doctor, don’t be rude. Save that for later.’

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

This ice cream is the best ice cream in the world. My hungover brain thinks as I shovel the deliciousness in between two bread buns and a wad of ketchup. I shall accept no ice cream before this, and eat no false sorbets. It is at this point, of course, I am confronted with a…

Coffee 130

My mistresses eyes are nothing like my Coffee. (Coffee is far more warm.) Coral is far more red than her lips; Because her lipstick sticks to the warm, pale mug. If her hairs be wires, I am glad there are no wires in my Coffee. I do dream of her blushing like a maiden rose,…

Panic Attack

(Help me) Stop looking at me like that (Help me) I’m fine (Let me out) As you can see (I can’t breathe) Just don’t look at me like that (I’m too far gone) I’m a woman, I’m strong! (I’m far away) Come on, you’ve got it all wrong! (I’m going to die) Don’t give me…

Nothing.

Here I am again- A pebble on the border Of having something interesting to say. I wish I could just write what I think I wish I could just say what I mean I wish my words could have better senses And I wish that all my poems could rhyme But not this time Because…

Marriage

I do, do I? Don’t I? I do, I do, I don’t- I do. DO I?

Time’s a Funny Thing, Part 4

I’m a psychiatrist. I don’t solve problems- I solve people. While the two are remarkably similar, there are just enough differences to make me totally redundant in this type of situation. The tunnel surrounding us is rather nice, as sewers go. The raw waste sloshing around my ankles is almost endearing, though I would prefer…

Like Clockwork

I live in an orange clock Trapped between two hands Being crushed between the cogs. . I live between 9 and 5, The only time I’m allowed to be alive Going around in the seventh circle. . I live in an orange clock. Trapped between two hands. Tick tock.

Traveler

I am a corn husk Gypsy-dancing in the kitchen With bare feet Naked arms armed with bangles and bells Dipping into romances with the smells   I am a marvel World wonders one through eight With bare feet Naked heart and naked soul Where whistling wind has left a hole   I am a ramble…

Monsters

Your advice is polarised And there’s two sides to every story, But you’re just taking the piss And it’s hard to sleep like this When you monsters are whispering in my ear Making be dream what I’d rather not And I can’t keep still The screaming is too shrill And there’s nowhere to hide.
