Too Shy To Keep Up The Pretensions

Too shy to keep up the pretensions
Crawling instead into the Notebook
The one with the scribbles upside down
Hints & subtractions; death to all the crooks
They’re lurking in the recesses
An obtuse excuse eventually bound to fail
Strength comes in many forms
Even when she tries to hide behind her veil

I’m Not A Digital Lover

boy-366311.jpg

I’m not a digital lover
Asking for hints of your new bra
I can’t compete with airbrushed lies
I’m an outcast; ignored with wounds still raw
Don’t mistake me for society’s goon
Not here to give you a complex or three
I’m not a troll to lure you into submission
I’m just a pirate looking to be free

Fifteen Dollars & A Broken Jaw To Boot

usa-1061836

Fifteen dollars & a broken jaw to boot
Expanding cities complete with souls for sale
Government land, but it’s not something to own
Your identity stolen down a worn migration trail
Pushing eighty-five before the winter sun goes down
Desert road adventures through the land of the free
Missing midnight mass for its not yet that time
Rumors & hints of how much you really mean to me
Your voice remains dry after another weekend
Do you remember the faces of all those left undone
Our days pass on by in those decadent whispers
Though all our remaining years will pass by as one
