from the tip of a Scorpion’s tail

Corporal attitudes aligned in spaces
battle demented servitude in spotlights
stroking the sights of a symbolic death

Poison in the Passion
Nightshade seduction
arouse androidal desires
to taste the dangerous pleasure pill
that only humans are allowed to feel
Love poisons the non-emotional circuitry;
flip the kill switch ... flood the doppelganger dead wife body 
with corrupting, electrical ecstasy
Suicidal sirens are vibrational moaning ...

Tears when my fingers hurt - A collaboration with James Swartz
When my fingers hurt 
the pain binds and forms

From a couple of totally different cultures
Had the...Read More

tables turned
following the “suicide”
of Aaron Swartz,
a delightful punch has been driven
into the gut of the empire,
whose eyes now

Just Me
I'm not the "Scum from Swartz Creek".
I'm not the "Geek from Gaines".

Refuse to be on display.
I just can't take the fall.
