I Remember Your Delicate Dress

I remember your delicate dress
Lying in a crumpled mess
Waves crashing in crushing blows
Ignoring every painful woe
Casting off from your direct fear
Pushing past deteriorating piers
Hold fast to everything you’ll miss
Tolerating life, such as this

Glassy Eyed Vipers Stand In The Corner

Glassy eyed vipers stand in the corner
Memories of cool water and menthol cigarettes
Manual labor for a couple more summers
Then throw me with the rest of your vets
Counting the days until they are all gone
Cast off into an unknown unforgiving sea
Vacant and alone on a sunny day
The cold winter days at least give reason to be
Memories of forgotten love lost
Those years crash against my soul
Pictures and letters no more than ash
Not enough booze to fill this very hole
