fireworks in the sunrise,

birdsong in the dark morning.

trash is foreign once it’s trash;

how alien like our dirt becomes.

the left tipped wing of an eagle;

gone forever, and here no more.

vibrant purples and brilliant blues.

oh, the masses of squirrels.

saturday night,


at the lake.

more smiles

than substance

using yours, ours

his, hers;

music to

heal and influence.

believing we could

never run

out of laughter.

believing we should,

never leave;

until the storm

of lightning

moved in.

goodnight friends.

She was on the plane to La Paz
When she told me she loved me and she’d
See me later

I asked if she was crazy
I hadn’t spoken to her in weeks
And now she was just going to up and leave

She asked me not to be mad

I told her I wasn’t, just lonely and to
Have a good time

She said I’ll bring you back a little
Indigenous Latin boy or girl

I said that’ll do and I love you too

We’re dying
We lay still, but the room is spinning
With smiles on our faces, our tears fill the room
In our tight embrace lit by the moon
This is our first hello
This is our last goodbye
This wasn’t love
Cause neither of us tried

I went to a wedding with a good friend of mine
It was the second wedding I’d ever been to
The first when I was nine

It went how weddings usually go
Boringly lovey dovey
Luckily it didn’t last too long

Before I had time to object to the marriage
We were already at the reception hall
An ear to ear smile on my face
When I heard the words open bar

My friend and I, as well as some of the family
Began to take bets on how long these two would last
Will someone cheat
Will money be an issue
She hates kids, but he wants a family

The food was good though nowhere near enough
So I made good friends with the bartender
And tipped him probably way too much
That’s all I remember the night was a blur
