Playing with Food

What do I want to eat? Some vegetables or some meat? If I were a nudist, what would I want for food? Whatever it may be, I would surely eat it in the nude. And if I were a conscientious vampire thirsting for blood, I would drain a hog that I wrestled in the mud. […]

Little Red Dots

Little red dots Show up on my sight Little red dots For my attention, they fight Little red dots Never give me peace Little red dots Take my time, piece by piece Little red dots Stir up excitement Little red dots Boil up my lament Little red dots Have so much to say Little red […]

How Romanticization of Schizophrenia Tainted My Art Project

Have you ever felt like a fraud? All throughout my work with my art project, Curious Markings, I’ve felt like a big ‘ol snake oil salesman. I felt this way because I listened to other peoples’ opinions about what they think it is or what it should be rather than taking some sorely needed time by […]

The Dreamer’s Fate

Nothing is as it seems In the waking dreamer’s dreams One moment, they’re walking the street The next, they’re traversing giants’ feet Trying not to get crushed One moment stopping, the next rushed Back in reality, drawing near That which he should truly fear A careless driver, a speeding car An intoxicated body, fresh from […]

Descendant

Oh, how lucky you will be To see the death of me To finally be on your own To carry on what I’ve known To add to the library more floors To make the library yours To open its doors to many more To make space for more books to store Oh, how lucky we […]

Afterlife

One day I will decide To take a ride To the highest peaks Where everyone seeks Peaceful solitude For mental fortitude Then descend to the steeple To reach out to the people To tell them the lie That I learned from the sky That the dead are in crowds Floating in the clouds

Patience

If I could have bolstered talent I would be more patient To take time with my thoughts To find all of my blind spots To listen to experts Even when it hurts To know when we are all wrong To know when to sing humanity’s song

Brute

I’m a big, burly brute From me stompers, to me clompers I’m also bloody cute All the ladies, big, burly rompers When the sun shines I’m smashing skulls At night, there’s wines The size of ship’s hulls I’m a big, hairy beast Sniffing out your puny flesh Soon you’ll be my feast With the hogs […]
