...that life is a blank canvas
after I've
pawned my paint and
brushes
for a bitter cup of coffee
and a bus pass.
hold on to your dreams
Jeff Lewis Jul 23
I would banish all my ghosts
      banish all pain
            all shame
I would banish the night
      but then
             I might forget my name

Oh,

to

         float free
                               among
    the
               clouds


But the sky
                                    is clear and blue

Thwarted again.

Rortle beans.
You've never had them.
But if you had,
You would know
They make you chortle.
Like a tortle on its back
Would never do
To you.
Poor tortle. (flip 'em over will ya)
Up too late

Something?
Anything?
Nothing.

That's what I have today,
nothing.

But nothing
might be
something,

if seen a certain way.
Nothing is nothing, except room to grow.

5 pm Halloween afternoon
87 degrees outside
I wonder--is that in the shade?
Anyway,
I'm not expecting many snowmen
Looking for Snickers bars.
As a kid i might dress as an artic explorer as a way to stay warm. Different places, different times.

The club was hot.
The music rocking.
On the floor I was dancing for
Joy!
Only to find out she left with
her girlfriends.
