Let’s Break Laws and Watch Cops

Blue and red lights spiral outside beyond the trees
While I crouch in front of a television
Resting
Feeling an urge to go seek destruction
Not play any part
But watch from the other side of the street
When a poor drunk schmuck that could me isn’t me
But I can’t get up
All I can do is watch shiny lights
From a distance
With a bent cigarette in hand
Here’s to the future

Everything’s Wavy

And I can’t catch my feet
They just keep moving
Moving
Moving
Gathering callous
Collecting pain
.
This whole worlds electric
Digital
And I’m the analog asshole
Grunting in the background
Of a good time
Spoiling crap already spoiled
.
And the days
Well they come and go
Like ivy forever expanding
Like grapevines forever scaling
And then they get cut
And I can’t remember too much
.
So I get drunk
For nothing
For no one
For no superstition
Knowing exactly what I’m doing
I get drunk
.
So maybe I drank too much of your rum
So maybe I can’t control myself
So maybe I ran through your halls like a mad man
Doesn’t matter much now
But this ringing in my ear
It won’t go away
This pain in my chest
Won’t go away

Scattered

Rain scatters on the street
Streaming no single beat
Drown myself in oblivion
Drown myself in my sheets
.
The song goes on, on, and on
In my head, in my yawns
Flat tired shitty weather
Asking where do I belong
.
In the trees, in the trees
Hooting howling bumblebees
Far away from everyone else
Dreaming silent jumbled peace
.
Pitter patter, pitter patter
Write a poem, make it sadder
Nothing wrong, nothing right
Now a dream begins to scatter
.
Cross some dirt, cross the street
Cross good men’s broken feet
Hear some laugh, hear some wail
Everything bittersweet
.
So write a story, keep it tight
In the distance see a light
Hear a roar, turn around
Walk silently to the night

From

Birth
To
Death
From
Dirt
To
Dirt
From
You
To
Me
Nothing
Sure

Dizzy Quest

Simple plans
Life’s grand
Hit the books
That hit your hands
.
With life lesson
Second guessing
Any battle
Against question
.
Awful child
Cheesy smile
Sell me beer
Make me wild
.
Leave real quick
Back door sick
Walk the street
Fetch a grip
.
Fade fade out
Famous shout
Tells a story
Scream aloud
.
Funny pest
Dizzy Quest
Wakes up early
Without a guess

Ode To My Past

Am I useless
Am I shit
Am I something that makes your gut turn
Do you feel bad
Do you feel bad
Are you useless
Are you shit
Good
So let’s stop talking about it
And run into other people who stopped talking about it
Try again
And everything will be fine
No sarcasm
Everything will be fine
So go find a tumbleweed
And roll around
Make some shit up 
Everything will be fine

To the Sun

Beating my back in the dry desert
I love you
.
To the women
Dazzling me with midnight tricks
Before making my heart disappear before my eyes
Abracadabra
I love you
.
To the rocks
The jagged boulders
Old as dirt
Slicing my shins
Bruising my bones
I love you
.
To the past
Transforming my fragile dreams
Into a novelty haunted house
Designed to frighten
With 10% humor
I love you
.
To the present
Always offering 10,000 possibilities
Forever turning at the drop of a pin
Forever living in the moment
I love you
.
To the future
With all the love
With all the magically intense moments
With all the beauty I could only hope to imagine
With all the shine and gleam
Fear and grunts
To the future
To the promise of ‘you’
Whoever ‘you’ are
I love you
.
To the poems
Always reminding me who I am
Always reminding others we’re not so different after all
Always speaking for me
When my tongue is too traumatized to work
Always keeping record of the highs and lows
Always explaining the purpose of yin and yang
Always rocking me softly to slumber
To the poems
I love you

Butterflies

In my gut
.
They dance
I vomit
They parade down streets
I fall down stairs
They sing beautiful ballads
I accidentally spit on someone trying to talk smooth
They float
I wake up late and can’t find my pants
They dine at the ritz with glitz
I choke on tacos
They write incredible sonnets
I write poems about tacos
They fall in love with steadfast commitment
I blackout and scare the ones I want to love me
They get drunk
I fall asleep on a sidewalk
They promote the better side of life
I promote tacos
.
I could learn something
From these butterflies

People

Don’t want to talk to other people
They just want to do things
Work
Entertainment
And conversation isn’t really talking
Just a filler of space
No one wants to expose their self
And talk unafraid of whatever judgement they receive
Maybe it’s not too beneficial
Maybe everyone’s scared
But they’re all too busy
To sit down and talk

Sway And The Honey Bees - Instinct
126 plays

A quick lil’ diddly I just recorded on my phone called, ‘instinct’

A Dark Slender Night

Wraps it’s arms around me
Muttering secrets
Rambling ramble
Soaking the grass with tears
Rolling mist for blocks on end
.
Painting the tree tops with vomit
She sings a soft lullaby
To all the baby birds dreaming of sunrise and worms
Unconsciously waving through the air
.
She hovers disconnected
Saying something over and over in a muted voice
Something worth listening to
I can almost hear it
I grow silent
.
Pretending I understand
As she hoots to the owls
Cries to the wolves
Reflects to the stars
Calls to the past
Before kissing it goodbye
Leaving Father Time in the doorway with a confused grin
Leaving me in pieces
With the beauty of life
