The Washing State    1999 -    
I was asked to tell
Just one word that describes me
So I said, 'façade'

I'm not who you think I am
No matter the poems I bleed within these virtual pages
No matter the secrets I spill onto your niave thoughts
No matter the emotions I cut out of my beating heart
I'm not who you think I am
I was asked to tell
Just one word that describes me
So I said, 'façade'

I'm not who you think I am
No matter the poems I bleed within these virtual pages
No matter the secrets I spill onto your niave thoughts
No matter the emotions I cut out of my beating heart
I'm not who you think I am

Snared upon a rusted hook
A hook that's known as Doubt
Deep in my skin
It stays within
As blood slowly seeps out

Thrashing against it's tangled hold
Is how I used to fight
But now I lay
In disarray
Sinking deeper into my plight

Closing my eyes I hear them well
The words they screeched and sang
Fatty, Floozy
Liar, Doozy
Deep in my mind these rang

I'm tired of my empty shell
Their opinions are quite right
I'm finally done
My demons won
I'll forever be out of your sight

Tick Tock
You look at the clock.

5, 4…
till your at my door.

3, 2…
you know what to do

When you get to 1…
the damage's been done

No, stop
Please don’t talk
No, more
I am so bored
No, emotion
Don’t even try
No, tears
My eyes are dry
No, worry
I will not feel
No, smoothness
I will not heal
No, perfection
My skin impaired
No, sounds
Everything is clear

Yes, blade
Red drops flow down
With each bloody raindrop
This darkness shall drown

Im okay, Im okay, Im okay

As a girl I prayed
Each night for twinkling stars
To grant me a home

I feel like I've lost all my toes
and smell has run from my nose.
Pink lips turned blue,
Which is what lips do,
When I've fallen deep into snow!

that moment when you fall into snow and all you were wearing were some shorts, a tank, and flip flops.

A swarm of baby snowflakes
Paraded merrily into my backyard today.
I flew outside at the sight of their arrival, barefoot
To enjoy their cool company
Before they decided to travel elsewhere.
They nibbled and tickled me
Upon my bare arms and pink cheeks
Causing me to spin in place
twirling, laughing at the shimmery grey sky
That they call home.
And it could have been the fever
that gave me those euphoric feelings,
But more likely than not
I had found a sliver of my heart again.

Giggling Giraffe
Speaking down on womankind
Now rules my country

Giggling Giraffe
Speaking down to colored skin
Now rules my country

Giggling Giraffe
Speaking down to those impaired
Now rules my country

Giggling Giraffe
Speaking down to warriors
Now rules my country

Giggling Giraffe
Speaking down about gay life
Now rules my country

Giggling Giraffe
Speaking down to other lands
Now rules my country

Giggling Giraffe
Promising to build a wall
To make us all great

This silly Giraffe
With his silly head held high
Needs luck to survive

For even all them
Who once helped this giraffe win
Will stop the giggles

giraffe- man
