Crisp leaves fall down her spine
Shedding the youthful look Of her once Tangerine-tainted shine Her body shreds but trunk keeps growing Her hungry hands, unwilled, unknowing look for the tang, the sweetness She once held between her thighs Amidst the cruel winter Thoughts invaded her spine But she grew and grew till she Outgrew her mind What a wonderful thing Time.
The sun was dawning on her shoulders
but her spine, worn did not feel the burn Her tears dripped into the sink into the sponge and the soap (lemongrass) burned bruised hands with the sting of lost hope But Maria was a wish amid a crowd of stars and those blissful days of yore beyond the shore Were not as far And after thinking for a while she nodded with a smile and the sun faded away but she felt warm inside her house.
Life does not reward
Disregard Or looking cool smoking a cigar When you look away (Smiling) No one's looking at you (Darling) You act so nonchalant And spend so much time Low-sweet-perfecting (your speech) You've forgotten what you meant To say
On the way home
I saw a giant billboard and it said "being a millionaire is just a few clicks away" And through tainted windows I saw millions clicking away and the drivers angry at the traffic and i wondered if maybe we should teach our kids to count to one million reasons to be alive first
when your eyes start turning green and the dawning sun lays dead upon them You will ask about my dream And I will tell you Later, When words don't suffice to fill the voided skies Between worlds built On separate minds And then I'll try Later, When the rivers run too High And you no longer listen
Take a jab at the sinner
Weeping in the corner, lips pursed in fear and knuckles bruised Cut the skin of the bleeder with the Sounds of broken ribs And **** truths (they were made just for him In your workshop)
He lost his inspiration
Living in the nation Where imagination Survives on starvation And words are silenced With hand-rolled cigarretes And by the loudness of the street And the sounds of family members Passively shaking their head As he told them what he majored in words don't heal the pain (anymore)
