"To you I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the Loyal Opposition."
-Woody Allen

You are so much more than
They're looking for.
If only you knew
What it meant
To be

"I bought a cactus. A week later it died.
And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn.
I am less nurturing than a desert."
-Demetri Martin

Evil and brilliant,
We breed vaporous faces below their merits
And suck marrow from old bones where
Marrow shouldn't exist.

Hold close, because we're always too far away
Can two bodies meld into one?
We'll try, we'll try
To be one

"Do what you love, love what you do,
leave the world a better place and don't pick your nose."

-Jeff Mallett

A rose, wrapped in bows,
invading your space.
Virtually acceptable
Minorly offensive
Freshly chopped cilantro
A burrito of memory.

"It is difficult to produce a television documentary that is both incisive and probing when every twelve minutes one is interrupted by twelve dancing rabbits singing about toilet paper."
-Rod Serling

Darling, darling! Your face is thinning,
Your hair is falling
right out of your scalp.
Your skin is wrinkling
Your eyes are sinking
Your bones are twisting
You age quite well.

"Difficulties strengthen the mind, as labor does the body."

Squeaky shoes,
on plate-shattering tile
Walk across with books
falling from your head
You've lost your poise.

Learning through osmosis
Falling through osmosis
Dreaming through osmosis
Being through osmosis.

"Our bodies communicate to us clearly and specifically,
if we are willing to listen to them."

Delicious young ladies dance through the dark and the dreary, dreaming of dandelions and dashing dickheads.

"A sailor without a destination cannot hope for a favorable wind."
-Leon Tec

your mouth is a faucet
like my nose
your words
are like mucus.
and this is why
we never listen.

"Call on God, but row away from the rocks."
-Indian Proverb

My nose is so sour,
came the complaint from the corner.
It's always something.
The music's too loud,
My drink is too weak,
My dress is too long,
It's too dark to see.
Just tune it out, tune it out,
They'll have to shut up eventually,

"I love my past. I love my present.
I'm not ashamed of what I've had,
and I'm not sad because I have it no longer."


They were drinking
milk and honey sitting
under a willow
the wind was hot
in their hair.

They were daisy murderers,
sun worshipers.
Their lives were like a faerie tale
And it was beautiful.

"If the point is sharp, and the arrow is swift, it can pierce through the dust no matter how thick."
-Bob Dylan

Crab apple heart
Making way for a
Honesty lost
somewhere in your core.

"Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say and not giving a damn."
-Gore Vidal

Play you like ivory.
Up and down, side to side
Top open, baby grand
Your notes are planned,
push a key to make a sound.
and in that sound, we've drowned.
