A Collection of Cliff Notes.

A Collection of Cliff Notes.



They mar
the parchment
of my flesh,
in a daredevil diary
that chronicles
my failures at
tempting fate.

A razor slash,
a puckered
bullet wound

surgical scars
and battered knees
that bear testimony
to the sports of pain
I often worshipped.

Departures....Gate 11.




My lips held
her last goodbye,
long after what was plane
became a speck in my empty skies,
Her heart chose a one-way ticket
that left me an afterthought,
between her vodka on the rocks,
and some cheese and crackers.

 

 

When Love Is At Minus Zero.



Surrounded by

cold shoulders

at every turn,
I am a charred stick

in the middle of a Popsicle
stuck firmly in my

frigid lemon of a life.


I am the smouldering

fire beneath the starry hole,
polarized endlessly in

an eskimo's icy dwelling.


Loneliness is an ache

that can be hot and bothersome
deep in one's soul even

in the worst of blizzards.


Only external warmth can

penetrate its freon flesh,
warm hands locked with mine,

lips melding as one,
Until two hearts generate

a thaw and then blissful warmth.
