1	A plume of dirt and grime envelops sky;
		The hellish slug of gas does creep along.
		It casts an orb three hundred stories high
		Over the Sun and ends his morning song.
		The birds and trees now stand a silent throng,
		Before this rumbling mass...Read More

Come Back Moses

Come back Moses, from yesteryear,
and do my bidding once again.
Go thee down and plumb the hatred

Aw sweet Angel, it's you that I seek
all alone jotting up winds so bleak,
for so many hearts I have perversed.

Craft my horns despite the pill's delay,
Sleep child,...Read More

I sink, and drown in all my sorrows
Bring me to darkness where I can forget.
Grant me that privilege, let me burrow
My final resting place, my final bed.
Forget, life, every word I ever said.

A poem written for my friend Anna

You, special magical, you!
Did you just see my tears of pain,
How I in vain

I sit here hiding, in the rain.

No discrimination between
that one moist or the other.
Don't smother.
Where've you been?
