Logo Goes Here ™

no logo,
another level?

how you figure,
same orange, same label,
same inflated
price
,

same sodium GMO, same plug
repeated ad nauseam
but yup, no logo,
it’s another
level,

now level with me, pal
think we’re as dumb as the
ad so patronized?

and why are these dumb
ads gettin’ me so
damn riled?

Bobbin’ Bird

when 8pm scratches
at midnight

a worry whispers its breath
cross darkest ditch, dragged over my
lips ‘gaint the vein, curls
the hurt, curls of dirt,
recoils our earth,
to end all pain,
make things
work and

it’s the end,
and it still hurts for
parts n’ toil shed
in search,

now fly on,
bobbin’
bird.

Enmeshed n’ Messy

it’s a thin membrane
that divides us,

it’s a well oiled mess
keepin’ we so
separate

and it’s same mesh that
keeps the stingers at
desired length
distance,

or lets flavors thru to
brew those steamed
sups of comfort,

when they come for
me, don’t expect
resistance,

just a cloud burst
in the distance
.

The Placebo Effect

scent holds a slipping
memory and it’s
contorted
image

never fails to
thrill me,

though i know you’re
mostly childish
fantasy,

but that’s ok too,
cause a feeling’s
a feeling
,

when memory
seems the better
company
,

and when fantasy feels
like only real
thing.
