the way
you look
in nothing
at all
no cloth
can cover
that heaven
no style
could do
it justice
being naked
is the
quickest way
to find
the soul

her heart
was in
the right place
her hand
was down
my pants
but her head
was off
with him
and I knew
we would
never do
this again

sitting in
this chair
I see
the world
as cinema
but better
I can
direct it

the beauty
of a
tree standing
in silent
orange sunset
no action
only these
voice-overs in
my head

you’ll strip
for them
but not
for me
I feel
like there
was a
door somewhere
and you
closed it
can we
stay afloat
while we
are searching
for ourselves

I think
your scars
are beautiful
they show
where you
have been
they hold
the pain
that made
this person
I imagine
the blood
running down
how alive
you must
have felt

trees in bloom
like fireworks
in july
the season
is bringing
change
making me
feel uncomfortable
I watch
the runners
pass my porch
I sit
smoking
wondering
why they
work so hard
at life
and why I
have so much
disrespect
for others

my myth
is america
land of
the free
I hope
to find
the truth
out there
the roads
seem infinite
but each
with stories
more beautiful
and tragic
than cinema
and here
to witness
and feel
to search
for truth
in life
one must
know life
