Drinking Rum On A Dead Woman’s Chest

Drinking rum on a dead woman’s chest

Callin’ me a bloody castaway

Pinkerton’s got me pinned down

Her love will never last past today

Flirting with the cigarette girl

Danced on my heart, now I’m pierced

I aim to stand tall, down to the last drop

Her beauty was deliberate & fierce

Always looking for something between

Usually a billfold, other times the sheets

She wanted the last of the big time spenders

Not often won, though seldom beat

I Will Never Live Life Through An Instagram Filter

I will never live life through an Instagram filter
I’m going to sing my songs & kick up my heels
I’m free of all their judgements & expectations
My soul doesn’t want what they offer to conceal
I’m going to take leave of the office today
I’m going to dance out in the promise of fresh air
Seeking one of like-minded pursuits & intentions
If you ever need me – you’ll find me out there

I Don’t Think You’re Better Than Me

I don’t think you’re better than me
Running tired fingers through my hair
You’re an apparition of your feeble mind
A moment forgotten – vanished in the air
Though your hatred is real enough today
I’ll gently ask you to keep your composure
A gentleman shall not tolerate outbursts
Besides, your ineptitude is dying of exposure

Glamorous Morph Of Atmosphere

Glamorous morph of atmosphere
Pretty people falling in place
Chamber pieces held tightly
Morning’s warmth upon your tired face
Hope today may be better than
All which came disappointedly before
Recreating ourselves into something
Giving opportunities to be much more
