You Have ONE Shot At Success. EVERY Day.

IF You Can Listen As You Speak

Bad shit tumbled outa his mouth. Words weighed nada as he flailed them about. No more whispers, now they had clout. Flung them so far on his powerful shout. Gonna git you this time. You are gonna be mine. We are gonna be fine. Once you’re with me. Then you will see. How staying free […]

He Didn’t Know What He Wanted And This Was Only Lunch

He Took The Shrooms And Then The Shrooms Took Him

Two big pieces of apple pie! What a guy! So, so fly! Says hello when he means good bye. Never says what he means. So many in-betweens. The space between lines is for reading. If you’re no reader, use feeling. Feel the words you may produce. Feel them up and then reduce Your you print. […]

Constant Peripheral Vision

The corners of his mouth hung high. Some would call it smiling. Course, they’d be defiling Jocularity. For it was plain to see. His knack for fakery. Extended to the faint of heart. Whom took no part in Discerning artwork. And he was a master painter…

Why… Mister Always Promoting?

Something about your pie hole. Continuously flapping. Cupping strange feet way in said hole. Can’t stop it from happening. Braggart for others. Makin’ their mothers So damn proud. Your mother’s head bowed. Hurting for her son. Whose come undone. Can’t even close his pie hole…

Night Terrors

He thought it was the booze When the sun went down But the damn trouble started Once the booze was gone. Nothing now to blame it on. Slowly, it began to dawn It wasn’t the booze. T’was him…

They Cannot Stress Enough

Work so hard. Gotta pay that rent. Nevermind your insides Or how rent makes them bent. Wake up artificially. Alarm, alarm, alarm! Knocking back a hit or two. Can’t do nobody harm. You go with the swarm. In which you have been born. And you don’t touch the fence, y’hear?!

When The Truth Comes Out

People are stupid. That’s what they think. Teatotalers pretending Like they never drink. They will raise a stink. If they’re on the brink. Of someone finding out What they really think. People are stupid. That median below. Where they gonna go? But up.

They Torture

A ten o’clock meeting. And one fifteen. Stick a little lunch meet in between. You record the minutes. Be the president. Authorize a budget, get the money spent. Track your inventory.

Same Circus, Different Town.

He waved and smiled and said He didn’t do it. You ain’t pinnin’ this one on me. He said I have bent backwards. I’ve twisted and tumbled. I am locked, I can never be me! They said this is you, now. This now is you. A lifetime of acting is how you get through This […]

The Minuses

She took away her takeaway Everyway she could. Every day she would. From her filthy neighborhood. Drag dead carcasses where she went. Smelled like hell and ten times bent. All on red, roulette the rent. Fly in an ice cube. Pickle tasting jube jube. Headache in a noob tube. She was bad bizness. Clear a […]

Like Your Opinion Counts

They asked him this. And they asked him that. And then they’d mumble behind his back. He said this And we heard that. That advice is full of crap. Buddy needs a yapper clap. He don’t know just where it’s at. But he freakin’ well waits in line…

The Living Truth

He saw it move. It was alive! He saw it thrash and swoop and dive. It squirmed and moaned. It hid and groaned. Survived disowning. Unwilling cloner. Shhh, he asked for now the task was To find the unseasoned stone.
