The color fades from the sky, and

the hardest part is

letting go. Letting the sun set-completely-

I can’t do this.


There is an edge to the blade that makes it all the more appealing.


We’re disturbed by the quietness of the blood/the way in which it flows.

All these nights bury themselves against our pain.


The bitterness in my heart throbs every once in a while.


The sun is coming out-and the

body bathes in the light till

there is no light left.

And what do I do? To survive?

What do I do? For you, how is

that possible?

Am I cold, dislodged and

fallen apart?

I’m not sure.


Listening to the Robert Johnson record I got today.

“Best of” record. I am surprised by how much I know

His voice

The emotion behind it.

He doesn’t need a band/never did need one. He’s got it all with his


-So Slick

(Delta Blues)


And these thoughts bubble in

my head. all that comes around,

you fade and follow me-into

the disillusioned mind.


The Knife that CUTS

the words that cling to

my dying body.

Mouth opens completely.
