tummy tummy, why so mad
I gave you all the food I had

I gave you stuff that's super yummy
you're acting weird and kinda crummy

c'mon tummy this isn't rad
what is making you so sad

could it be the roasted cricket
but I only barely licked it

Jesus tummy, is there a dad
I'm pretty sure there's no such lad

This little lover went on a date
This little lover stayed home
This little lover had a honey to cuddle
This little lover had none

This little lover vowed never to love
ever again
all the way home.

When larynx lays a toxic trap
that words can't help you out of
Palmed inside a cosmic clap
without a way to wiggle out
when flawless lips are watching
whatever you do

This poem was sentenced
by the Gods

to an instant death
at forty-nine

It is now eighteen
now twenty-one

in the blink of an eye

Already time to choose
its last words

what words
should they be

will they ever count

in the Parable of the Sower
Son of God relates
the less-than-fortunate fates
of seeds fallen
by the wayside,
on rocky ground,
in thorny fields

Has nothing much to say
of seeds sowed
in fertile earth
utop an active volcano

Mother heaves
a tortured breath
her lungs on fire
for the first time
in a long time
She falters
we kneel
heads bowed
hands clasped
in typing supplication

to silicon embryos
for signs of life
from the God
in the womb
between our fingers

Tell you what?
Whether you're a mistake
or just a nice idea

Is it degrading to call humanity an idea? asking for a friend

Mirror Mirror, off the wall
Ego shatters at your fall

Feeds a tongue that chews on teeth

Airs to make an ocean cry

Inspired by a.p.

When you run with the wind
and you run out of breath
when you ride on the tide
and the flow knocks you under
when you climb up the earth
and it towers over you
when you dance in the sun
and it sets you on fire
when you reach for the moon
and it flees your desire
when you aim for the stars
and your shots ricochet
when you know all the words
but the spell doesn't say
when you gather your thoughts
and they scatter so soon
when you wave at the day
and it waves over you
When you shake with the devil
and he lends you a gift
when you steal from a thief
and a thief steals from you
when you lie to a friend
who deceived from the start
when you plot for revenge
and your mind looses heart

When you stand on the edge

and vertigo
kills your suicidal spark
