Southern California Made Us Promises

Southern California made us promises
That no one could possibly make
The beach & the beauty
All revealed to be restlessly fake
But I know of a callow truth
Of heritage & the shore of Bodega Bay
Of family & the love we can’t forget
Perhaps I’ll make it back some sunny day

I’m Gonna Bust Out With The Tortoiseshell Frames

file-nov-19-06-37-53

I’m gonna bust out with the tortoiseshell frames

I can take a sensual selfie if you please

Come in for a closer look, Lady

Grab my hair while I’m down on my knees

Let me taste your sweet serenity

Forget the boys who don’t know how

It’s not your job to make them men

You’re here, within my clutches now

I Didn’t Mean To Get Too Personal

I didn’t mean to get too personal
I merely noticed your exposed slip
My thoughts took me to uncharted waters
Thinking of us – alone- a subtle skinny dip
An abandoned wedding gown crumpled
The satin too white against your lace
I didn’t know what I was supposed to feel
Though I could see the muted joy in your face
You kicked off your heels & removed your gloves
Walking too close you whispered ‘yes’ to my surprise
I loosened my tie before you took charge
I’ll never forget how you looked with your laughing eyes

You Know The Type

You know the type

Running off to sail the oceans

Claiming to be a dread pirate

Wishing for some sort of motion

A stagnant life killing the soul

Truth is, he only ever wanted to be with you

This is the life chosen, so time to live

Easy to forget the water’s real hue

Feed My Soul With Rock & Roll

Feed my soul with rock & roll
I need you to turn up the noise
The raw & dirty guitar licks
You tried to seduce little rich boys
My heart broke in the shadows
Don’t tell me to relax, I’m out of proportion
You’re a cruel woman, ya know
I’m gonna need to turn up the distortion
I feel ridiculous for trusting you
Gimme that dial, I want it loud
Let me forget my woes tonight
& that I’ve been before this soulless crowd

Where Is My Absurd Little Coffee This Morn

Where is my absurd little coffee this morn
Claiming to be something or other
I rise slower, wiping Pixie Dust from my eyes
Never forget the dreams they try to smother
My gorgeous blonde lady sleeping peacefully
Our love burnt brightly into a passionate fire
I stretch my legs & smile at a job well done
She’ll slumber for a while, for she’s kind of tired

I’ll Send You Love Notes

cell-phone-791365

I’ll send you love notes throughout the day

Explaining how much you mean to me

Instructions for the coming nightfall

Details & negotiations for once you’re free

We need to get rid of all the day’s stress

Let us forget about tomorrow’s obligations

I’ll start by removing my clothes first

It’ll be a beginning to your eventual inspiration

I’m Not Going To Apologize

I’m not going to apologize
Because you decided to be offended
You’re uber sensitive & whiney
My beliefs shall not be defended
I’m going to keep on keeping on
I forget you as you lag behind
I passively resist your drama
Leaving you to the new tragedies you might find

I Don’t Know What They Expected

I don’t know what they expected
That they’d wake up & I’d not be me
That I’d forget all truth & reality
That I’d give up trying to be free
They must not realize who I am
Their feeble minds will never comprehend
Once my ire is aroused
I am unwilling to surrender, break or bend
