I picked
her up
at a
place downtown
she liked
me because
I knew
hillbilly music
she liked
me less
in the
morning without
the whiskey

I found
your number
on a
napkin in
my wallet
I enjoyed
our talk
about hats
you seem
real nice
and seem
real hungry
for life
sorry I
stepped on
your foot
but at
least I
know you
thought of
me the
next morning

I don’t
want this
where can
we hide
the womb
was safe
and then
just rain
no god
will help
it was
his idea

america

leave a comment »

the heart
of america
is hard
to describe
we went
from farms
to factories
to fucked
we invented
more shit
to consume
and slowly
started to
hold it
as god
the foundation
of our
nation is
paper thin
and ripping
the heart
of america
is hard
to describe
for I
seldom hear
it beat

these beers
are good
and cold
for now
the pain
is put
on hold
tomorrow will
be painful
tomorrow will
be grey
tomorrow is
a brand
new day

leave me
alone things
I don’t
want to
be bothered
this head
of mine
is not
on right
my decisions
seemed flawed
and I
cannot stand
up straight
so try
again tomorrow

I say ‘us’
like you
never left

I still unlock
the car door

and lay
in bed
conversing
as if
your ghost
could respond
