The windows in soap bubbles

A nip in the air that pinches my skin wrapped up in swaddling to keep the warmth in I grow old with the memory of once being young not believing that this time has finally come. This is fun or ii could be if it wasn’t me but it is and it’s not. Wednesday is…

Nineteen hours later

I am tired and I said it no one because they wouldn’t understand this feeling that my life is running on nitrous oxide burning me inside my eyes are flash red feet made of lead I am dead tired. I’m laughing about it, this gas is the bang which is slang but I am still…

On a scale of one to three

It’s not so complicated, one man’s method is another man’s madness take it from me when you’re as blind as the management can be there’s nothing to see maybe ‘the one drop’ but that’s an ocean to amoeba and other miniscule things. Not complicated at all if you don’t take your eyes off and want…

11 carat roughcut

I have heard it comes to those that wait, well I’ve waited and seen reinstated and been disappointed. There’s a wind blowing in I would say and it’s already well on the way, that take, take, take, can take that as read. It interests me, the duplicity but not that much because they’re amateurs. I…

Fifteen percent

The thing is one never knows what’s around the next bend in the road. I kissed a frog once and it turned into a toad, but that’s beside the point. If I had second sight in my third eye I’d at least try to see around each corner before I got to it. I got…
