the notes the sky left behind

were just there to distract me


I stopped reading them

like I stopped reading the news


sugar & memory     I burned

the shopping carts of youth


have I ever told you that everything

I keep on my shelf is an excuse?


how I built this whole house on denial

and desire never fulfilled


how little I care for so many

things I used to die for


I sold my guitar & filled

its case with night



Broken Glass



the plants & the water

the glass & the hammer

the way we relate

champagne & celebration

celebration & sadness

vintage muscle car

with the top down

remembering a birthday

broken glass on the street

ugly animatronics

everybody knowing

everybody but me

christmas lights

wrapped around my body

so I can bring a spectacle

with me     wherever I go
