barflypoet & author of dark fiction

‘static channels’

speak in crimson tones;
i listen in black and white

a blessing we tune in on
static channels.

‘her girlfriends won’t talk’

she dances
limbs blur
husband home
questions nothing.

‘only fuck me, she said’

she loved my linguistic ability
the way i slowly exhaled my f’s
but she packed her bags the moment
i screwed her something good.

From my book ‘A Distilled Spirit

‘look at you’

look at you;
so smug in a chiseled suit
dagger tie
you speak of perry ellis
in a raised hush
as if this tone will cast
your nobility across the walls
bask in the admiration of
commoners
behind your dark rimmed
frames;
little know you that to the ferryman
i have already paid my dues;
you can shed your designer fabrics
but i remain clad always—
bone and sweat and fire.

‘new conversation’

charlatans shimmer with light
held captive in their palms.

‘collapsing’

it requires no touch
just our bodies collapsing
into each other’s space.

‘accounting for dummies’

you keep a system
of checks and balances
in place for everyone
but yourself.
