Hard Wired Worry

Image result for raining needles

spit your forest
needles on
this

dirty old
bed.

i dream too
sharp
in

clouds
tumbling..

teary, rolling hot
and naked on
every habit
forming

in heart hard
wired for
worry.

2020-12-07 – Better’s Perch

the ace stays tucked
under my
sleeve,

but with stealth
mastery of
match’s

moment to moments, it
remains the secret
sheathed,

as does the game’s
hard knock
truths,

time to fold and split
from this table,
while i’m..

still able
to.

..to know i’m stable, too.

2020-10-01 – Quitter’s Cup

it’s time to pour
a cupful of
anxiety,

tired from the fleeting
buzz i catch off
flavoured
coffees,

i’ll brew 2 bags,
3 bags, 4 bags
..more?

let’s up, up
the anti!

dial up to max
intensity!

maybe just a
little sip?

++++

it does the job
but tastes
like..

2020-09-17 – Bulletproof Suit

siren’s muffled
lullaby plays
on a loop,

and now our sky’s
gone black
from

shootin’ off
those

gold-tip bullets
as i drop in
just in
time

for that belated
drink on the
roof,

i sigh in rings
of smoke

++++

as i cozy into my finest
honey glass suit
labeled 80
proof.
