Dust Under The Table

It's not just you: Restaurants have gotten too loud. But there are some  fixes. | Popular Science

i’m parked at a back
turned table

where confidence is
tacky while..

self-loathing’s
noble,

dinner guests
unfit,

mainstream cable spewing
life’s sawdust,

so out dances a
broom and
host..

sweeps mess under
back turned
table,

to be done with it..
but steps
in it.

Collage

tearing the small print
out of lifestyle
magazines,

squeezing teabag
stains my
hand,

crumpled page from
book i won’t
miss,

pull head from
hourglass
sands,

patch ripped off
my service
jacket,

a bloody scam
it was

i confess..

carving living stars
from sky’s
quilt

with a laughable
lack of
guilt..

left my life
a gutted mess,

gutless scam
it is

i confess..

stuck the stolen
shards of
light

to my sweaty head
then crashed
to sleep,

time’s clippings strewn
across the
floor,

of showroom
suite.

Split the Difference

Image result for yin yang abstract

all years wash into one,
good guys too
have

empty eyes and
bad boy

cuddles puppy in
a blood bath
bruised,

lord, grab me by
the scruff
of

my dad
suit..

take pot shots
all you
like,

good boys, bad guys-
why can’t
we

shake hands
while locking eyes?

Bird Song

Image result for bird cage abstract painting

what’s this dreamland of
which you sing
with wings

matted flat
to back?

such flapping
for little
flight

too much chirping
out of tune for
lonely bird,
won’t..

you trill along
with me?

even if strange to
my words..

i hear heart lumped
in vocal
box,

muffled under
cooling
rage,

i’d rather float upon a
melody than
drown
in

talk through
bars of a
cage.
