Soon enough

Soon enough

 

In 30 seconds

you will be underwater

In 40 seconds

you will be

unconscious

 

In 45 seconds

the light will turn green

And in 50

you’ll nearly kill your little sister.

 

In 55

she’ll realized what’s happened.

And in 60

she’ll panic.

 

 

“Dude… would you be okay

if we stop at dads?”

I remember that his wife is home today.

 

 

“No I just really need a drink of water.”

No man, I just don’t feel too well.

 

 

I feel….

warm.

That kind of warm that makes you… tired.

I blink.

 

 

and then…

Something’s gone wrong.

Looking

Over the precipice, fate ready to fall, below to the unknown darkness to be consumed by the

Vast chasm in the ground. Be

Exhausted and succumb to willingly fall backward, with arms outstretched to each side. Find out what’s down there. While I’ll follow momentarily behind.

Olympian – Woman in Camisole

Olympian

 

Sweat beads down

Eyes squint to see

The pole too high

For this Olympian wannabe.

 

Why was the crossbar so damn high?

Even the professionals

Were terrified.

 

Broken legs

Busted ribs

Bruised jaws

And the pole was split.

 

Up in the sun the crossbar resides

To knock down the Olympian

With who it collides.

 

The crack of bones

On the ground below

The snap of a pole

The Olympian’s turn was thrown.

 

He looked up

To see the crossbar.

With feet below,

And the sun blocked out

By a woman

In Camisole

Dear parents,

There’s this thing that the kids do.

This is our advanced apology,

To the kids and to you.

You see there’s this thing,

That comes once every May.

And there’s not much we can do.

(to our ever so slight dismay.)

Where the kids go on and rate each other.

Mostly the boys to the girls they lust after.

Anyone caught may be suspended.

(but the girls will remain highly offended.)

You see there’s not much we can do,

Nor offer to you.

There’s a counselor here if you’d like.

But we’re sorry otherwise.

(to have let it get this far, we mean.)

We know it’s a problem.

But we’ve failed to do enough.

So here’s your warning:

Rate Me May is coming.

And the self-esteems,

They shall

be

plummeting.

 

Because this is Rate Me Week.

And I wanna know what you think.



This is a time for high schooler’s:

That’s all about looks.

All about the color of bra hooks.



7: hot but comes w a stutter.

9: but your sister wuz better.

 

“What can I do to get a better score?”

Girls ask and implore.

C’mon!

Let’s have it!

Their self-esteem is yet to hit the floor.

 

1: gross

2: ever heard of makeup fugly??

3: youve got crooked teeth

8: suup bae?

10: id fuk u now ;)

 

Why was this ever even allowed?

 

On social media,

It’s important that you:

Rate me please.

So that everyone can see

What it is you think of me!

 

Dear parents,

There’s this thing that the kids do.

This is our apology,

To the kids and to you.

Self-esteems

shall

plummet.

We know no good can come from it.

But unfortunately this happens.

We can’t make it better,

And we’re sorry-

(that it’s happened enough to require a warning letter.)

But,

Rate Me Week is coming.

And it’s when boys come in:

And they rate your:

daughters, your sisters, your family, your friends:

by a hotness scale of-

One through Ten <3

Monster

Monster

he hides under my bed

he hides inside my closet

he hides within those blankets

those pillows

those jackets

he hides within those jeans

he hides

here

let me set the scene:

 

there’s an abandoned home

where it’s all colored monochrome

a layer of dust has turned the colors

and now turns away any others

 

who would step foot here?

who would dare live here?

who would dare come here –even to move out?

 

when he hides

sucking even the walls dry

of memories

of feelings

preparing you better for the leaving

 

he has decided it’s better this way

if you don’t even want to come to move out

surely the move would never be blocked by doubt

 

he hides

in the mattress

in the wave chair

in the dresser

in the headboard

and in all miscellaneous personal treasure

 

who would dare step foot in his room?

who would dare come and face him?

when you’ve run from him for so long

this is no longer a place for you –so go along

 

he hides

in the cabinet

in the spot where the bed used to be

where the Christmas tree used to be seen

 

and he controls

in fear

in dread

in that lump in your throat

in that turn you make to walk away

 

when you finally have no other choice

you have to stand and fight

and you stare right into the face

right into the face of that Monster –that you created.

 

he’s inside the closet you’re cleaning out

he’s inside the drawer you’re cleaning out

he’s inside the bathroom that’s a dingy white

he’s inside the shower you slept in that one night

 

he’s inside the window you now have to close

he’s inside the stuffed animals and stoves

he’s inside the litter box that was feared to be cleaned

and inside those fire alarms, your old fiend

 

why?

because he lived there too

through good and bad

he was the memories made

 

so you wait and wait

because if you’re at a distance you know someone else has to do it for you

you know you have to move out

but if you’re not there to help then someone else has to come

and they have to clean it out instead of you

so you can avoid him a little longer and make do

 

but now –he’ll live there forever

the Monster has won

 

he’s packed up

what wasn’t dealt with was thrown in a box

“i’ll face him later”

with pitiful fists and rocks

 

and now he’ll be moved into the new house

this old abandoned one will be sold

and he’ll be a ghost to anyone new

but when you…

oh if you step through

that door he’ll remind you

that:

 

“I live in the closet”

“I live in the place your bed once stood”

“I live in the place where I ended your childhood”

Paralleled Voyagers

Paralleled Voyagers

Gone are we

On this endless sea.

Into the sunlit sky

No – into the ocean depths.

Going parallel together for that sunset horizon.

 

Valiantly the pirate ships sail on.

East bound –

Redirect now

To the west.

Inflicted, infected, and intoxicated.

Capsized into the sea

All of our dreams

Lost to a drowning gone vertically.
