finger dance

one over the over
crossed legged
dances slowly, traced trails etched bleary eyed tears
fall
rain
roofless cistern pit
dust sparkles in moonlight
poison little diamonds
as her fingers dance
crossed legged
one over the other
mesmerized by darkened delights
pathogenic nights

I sat. Stunned.

Sullen

Lost in a vapor vapop kind of haze
I stopped long enough to see you leave the room
now its time and time enough to leave
its time we got along long
and kiss by the sea

why wont you hear me
why are you so far away?
why are the screams from under the floor boards
driving us insane?

drop the lingo and scratch scratch your knees
we cant get along long enough
bird and bees

sit down round in that yellow chair
and see me smile smile a long and toothy smile

fear is something deep inside
deep leap inside of here
the window shatters spatters down below
and your heart is broke broke
and you leave the room.

Mobius Black

 She drives it away
and into the night
she drives it away
into the black
 dark winter hair cool
summer sweat
and the beat in her hips
makes me forget.
 dances and she dances
to an unknown song
she dances and she dances
she strings me along
 along the mirror
lines of China White
she looks like a newborn
tucked in for the night
 She drives it away with a brush of her hand
she drives it away
the song it clatters
the song grows dim
blinking on the nod
she drives it away
she drives it under her skin

Pickin it up

Picking it up and

snort

its time to go
picking it up and its time to go
water running to the side
the needle in the slide

hit her home and
you’re gonna die
hit her home and you’re gonna die
and the needle sinks the yellowed pink
and your eyes begin to roll

yes your eyes begin to roll

picking it up its time to go
and the trees slant to the Eastern sky
and the street comes alive
and you dance and you dance
but the song is in your mind
and the silver run slows
and the silver it turns slow

picking it up and its time to go
picking it up and its time to go
the candle burns the spoon and your eyes, your eyes they begin to go
your eyes, your eyes, they begin to glow.

Empress of the Red Carpet

Come stand with me

Empress of the Red Carpet
Empress of the Red Carpet

my Empress of the red carpet
looking for a red room black

walking down an avenue
with no one to see
walking down an avenue
only me
and we’re walking down the carpet
for the world to see
walking down the carpet and there is only me

come my Empress and set us free
come to the red room black
it is all there in a marker red
its all here
all in here
all in here in a marker red.

Slipping a sideways devil

Oakland Police Memorial Service Draws Thousand...

Sleet covers the black
light shaded drink in hand
falls slowly

red light go man go
red light don’t stop until you have had
it enough

slipping a sideways devil
catches you
releases you
with a burning kiss
hot, tempered steel

drink a shot of amber
nod to the lighted sky
walk through the doorway

realities soft existence

red light go man go
red light don’t stop until you have had
it enough

All I see

When I close my eyes
this is all I see
snow covered field
you in my yard
sitting on a throne made of snow

When I close my eyes
this is all I see
a shadowed memory of you next to me.

When I close my eyes
this is all I see
an empty long neck
amber gone

When I open my eyes
this is all I see

an empty room.
