Random Poem:

further i slide, more i stay put

three days passed, i still thought about razors, pills,
hanged rope.
so tonight i sleep for no one.
pointless nightmares stuck in a willow Charlie's
k   i  t e cannot get high enough
to vomit police pigs on their witched limbs.
guitar string admiration, e string strangulation.
society's desperation.
these 4 beat measures bullet my heart,
erupts veins.
'squeeze that trigger, boy'
grandma weeps over my body heap.
mound of flesh, stretched over centuries of buried lies.
mauled dress tie mobs.
i look better in mahogany.
