Looked after properly moth balled and yet unkindly falling apart

Conscience is layered just as are subconscious wishes and fears

Sometimes I play with the bones and take them to the junkyard

The cellar is his bleak repose,


in concert with the cockroaches and flies;


there he wipes his runny nose,


toils the day long, sunshine tries,



insinuates through rough and crumbled boards.


Lessons can't assuage his conflicts,


the bottom of the pile, his heritage affords


no more, the...Read More

Hit the lights
Call my name from the fog
Look at my reflection
 Through the looking glass
And watch myself degrade.

Hit the lights
I can't bear to see
It burns my soul
for eternity

The pause button is frozen
Life is my sacrifice
The play button is broken
fast forward to my...Read More

The Bottom Of The Pile
The taxpayer,
is at the bottom of the pile,
or so it seems,
by the upper class style.

What will happen,
when they smother us to death,
then who will they call on,
to cover their debt.

We are not strong enough,
to carry this load,
why shouldn't they carry...Read More
