tiny piece
of wood
residing in
my finger
a souvenir
of late
night improprieties
this thing
it hurts
more mentally
than physically

the moon
above my
front door
shines down
not judging
the failure
of today
hanging indifferent
to us
and all
the pain
we feel

these words
seem different
than others
less pretty
more direct
no stories
nothing epic
and if
these words
reach you
may they
aid you
in finding
some truth

quiet! demons
leave me be
you have molested
me too long
eyes closed
imagining a box
a hope chest
the coffin to send
you back to hell
and it is real
they are real

clinging tight
to bedsheets
stark naked
as if
your dream
was death
or sex
or both
I see
that grin
that grin
that absurdly
beautiful grin
that comes
and goes
I hope
I too
am in
that dream

so hard
to think
when eyes
are heavy
and mind
is stoned
and tired
few thoughts
do cross
more serious
than not
they dance
through quickly
and I
then return
to balance

part of me
is not here
the world that
other people live
is not mine
their games are
not for me
body is present
half of mind
the other half
a nomadic correspondent
sending back data
from worlds unexplored
by normal reason
and that part
the missing part
is most important
in being free
