Going Out With Some Poetry

I have the same fucking resolutions so tuck them in, pull the sheet up to that warm space under chin, kiss foreheads and take a mallet and wallop until you need to clean the walls.  

I just want to be a better version of myself in 2018. I want to level up.  I want to shed as much bullshit that does not serve me as possible.  I want to put my money where my mouth is. I want to write another book. I want to sell a fucking book.  I want to hit my Goodreads reading challenge for once. I want to eat all the unused gluten and buy recreational marijuana. I want to be what the picture of this lion is:



In an attempt to remember who I used to be, here are two poems.  




You Are The Morning Quiet


Where there are pots and pans
hands,
you are not.
The loud frightens.
Its ugly,
a thorn.

Between the clangs and
bangs
your soft slips in.

Your still,
a reckoning of
peace

of
home

Brown flashes tendriled
bright

I wait for
each
one



High Hopes

There is a shuffle in my heart
it skips warm then chokes
a snake mid eat
on a thing
it thought it
could
conquer

The snake of me
eats
eyes bulging
jaw
unhinged
I’m trying but

-->
this water buffalo, man…







Happy New Year fuckers I mean, everyone.

I want to read more from you. Always. I go back and re-read stuff in PANK. It`s time travelling and it makes me feel sad and alone. Your writing is mind expanding :)
