Me, Me, Me

Why can’t we think about others before thinking about
ourselves, why should it always be Me, Me, Me…it’s a
crying shame people are too self-absorbed these days to
care about anything else, now I’m not saying it’s that
way with all of us, God knows I try to help those I can
and God knows I try to love everybody the way I’d
wanna be loved, still I ain’t no saint I have my moments
too but all in all I still believe there should be more
compassion than always Me, Me, Me…well and in those
dark and chaotic times it seems as though we’d rather
place blame on others than accepting the fact that it’s
us that could be wrong…it’s a sad, sad world we live
in today when it’s constantly Me, Me, Me I wonder how
much longer this world can go on this way…well why
don’t you be somebody’s angel today ‘cuz don’t you know
what goes around comes around so why don’t you put a
smile on somebody’s face when you are feeling down!

It was a freak accident of epithelium under anaesthesia. You place a window on to a hollow brain. The money makes the monkey out of you. A green light blocks the fish, your memory, to swim in black thoughts. The

Yukon Call Me Panic

Yukon Call Me Panic ode

Vane glorious and absolutistic, though I defiantly, cavalierly, and blithely attest Yukon bet your (laugh-in) sweet bippy mine acidic breast houses anarchic, anti-poetic ballistic, barbaric, and bubonic cannibalistic demons within thy safely guarded Pandora chest atomic cesium clock timed to

The Orchestra And Me

The Orchestra And Me prose poem

I had a dream last night. It was very concise but interesting. Rather revelatory, but not prophetic in the usual way. There was a class with a facilitator encouraging input based on a lesson plan provided to the class. I,

Chase Me

Chase Me short poem

Voltage charges power lines’ high wires All honest men die liers Her electric current runs tight by pliers My fires burn, they breathe, ash, and smoke Held so tightly I couldn’t help it my hand broke Shattered into a million
