Gold Leaf Tea

turned in the killer n’ all
his money just before
it made me

ugly and greed paid me to be
the kind of man who’s skin
glows green when talkin’
down all that’s light
and sunny,

from so many trapdoor skies
above me, for they all drop
now so golden bricks
n’ heavy

its harps and heavens
still avoid me.

well i’m here if they ever wanna
knock on bark and join me
in my tree knot for a
warm-up cup o’
gold leaf
tea.

Insomni-animal

this deprived
no sleep

thought i’d be more
neck deep than
weak

hoped i’d meet more fine
blokes and fewer cracks
in old house creeps
,

knew i’d choke on many
crackhouse feasts with
those old blokes
six deep feet,

ok, now back
to this no
sleep
..

off leashed

gum drops, bottle rocket
throttles flat

i smashed my BB Gun to bits with
billy’s now broken bat
,

then we went to the stupid human
store and brought ya back
a vampire cat

rung the gong, left pussy at
your door, right near
the step-back,
thumbtack
welcome
mat,

and i think that by now, it’s fair
to say we shan’t be
welcome back.
