Death Plays the PianoAnd he's not bad either.Death Plays the Piano3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Arrived at the third funeral today, the sun
Was shining, the bouquets and wreaths
All in their respective vases, their dignified
Grief, yes, no one
No one really knows
Why he showed up.
Now here's the room, we'll hold the service
Here, right where there
Is enough room, there's
Plenty of room where that came from.
And the casket, open
We don't want the body
Unseen like the circumstances
That led to
He's really quite good isn't he?
Skeleton hands and everything?
Must've had a lot of practice, with
These types of things.
Death plays the piano, well
Who would have thought?
You can hear Comptine
D'un Autre Été
From the movie "Amélie"
Fall in little cascades
Down on the grass gardens
At this time of year.
Your face, my friend
Has never been so lovely.
The body? Oh, yes.
The river's at the seams
Charon, be a dear.
Here's five-and-a-half pounds

around the dawn
as if begging
for a favor,
so smooth and sharp
worn bare by August -
a mermaid's rib
rubs salt from sand,
the battering lilt of seagulls
against the summer sun.

A temple by the water
is soaked in faith.
They throw their painted idols
in a pond bathed in yellow chants,
tanned under a malaria sun.
Elephants sip clay through their trunks
and sling it on their backs
methodically as if in prayer.
I remember young brown eyes
and red marks awake in darkness,
shining through retinas
of firefly light.
Children placed the sun in a jar
deserts have burst into Manhattan glass
by all that glow.
I have heard the gnarled trunks of spiced men
mumble of 330,000,000 gods,
and the reincarnations of one that strikes through
the corkscrew of death in time.
Or maybe it's a piece of yarn,
pinched and sliding to the fray.
It is eons too late for us.

Look up from your book.
Look up from your laptop

They think you are an animal;
They do not even pretend to care
You now feel like a fool.
They will not ever see
You too have a heart and soul;
They tease you mercilessly,
And you begin to lose control.
They think that is all right
Just because they can;
They ignore your bark and bite,
And you no longer feel human.
They cannot end their play-
Not that they have ever tried;
Your only hope as you pray
Is that they do not hear you cry.
You cannot understand what they find
So amusing in your pain;
You begin to lose your mind,
Forgetting you were ever sane
Or once knew a day when all
You felt were peace and joy;
So you weep and hide, scream and bawl
Because they made you their toy.
You blame yourself every day
For what they made you be;
And all you can pray
Is that your tears they never see
Even though this sorrow
Seems like it will never go away.
You hope that they might
One day know what they have done
By smothering your dying light
And only allowing you to figh

The path of salvation, light to follow
Are you lost, my dear little soul?
In the shadows you have been too long
My tears, where are you?
The pain I need to release
Release out of me
Please, my tears
Come back to me
Oh wings so white, hold me
Please don't let me fall
Heal my broken raven wings
Let the angel rise once more
Eyes, eyes, be aware
Enemies are stalking us
In the shadows, in the dust
We see them before they come
Eyes, don't you fail me
My heart, nowhere you are
They once tore it apart
Pieces hidden, lost
No heart, no heart
Who am I?
Who am I?
Lost in here, away from there
My mind shattered, yet so dark
I have no place to call home
My eyes won't face another day
A day without suffering
I have no heart to call own
I have no tears to shed down
I have no life to live for
I have no love to hold on
I have no dreams to share
Nothing I am

There was a time when you made me feel beauitful
There was a time when you said I was special
There was a time when you made me smile
But now I am ugly.
There was a time when you were my everything
There was a time when you said we'd be forever
There was a time when I only wished for your kiss
But now I am alone.
There was a time when you said you'd fight the world for me
There was a time when I lived for you, and you for me
There was a time when we were inseparable
But now I am worthless.
There was a time when only you could stop my tears
There was a time when only you were there for me
There was a time when only you said you loved me
But now I am hopeless.
Ugly, alone, worthless, and hopeless.
Just look at what you've done.
Took a strong girl and left her broken.
Let me ask you, now was it worth it?
The One Where The Cake IgnitesThe One Where The Cake Ignites10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Phoebe is in Central Perk with Ross.
Ross is writing a poem to Rachel,
unlikely as this may seem. Phoebe
listens to him recite it, then Chandler
walks in on the last few lines: "And Joey
is a noey like Hannukah with Monica,
so you see, you're left with me." "Monica
and Hannukah?" says Chandler. "Gee, Ross,
I thought you quit poetry." (Titles) Joey,
elsewhere, is cooking with Rachel.
They're baking a birthday cake for Chandler.
Joey's idea. They're counting on Phoebe
to keep him stalled. So, naturally, Phoebe
tells Chandler to write a poem for Monica.
"It's Phoebe's poetry workshop!" Chandler
relents, but writes four lines for Ross:
"Oh Ross/So cross/Becoss/Of Rachel."
Monica arrives in the flat to find Joey
and Rachel cooking. She screams. Joey
belts her - she falls unconscious. Phoebe
senses violence, contacts Rachel
psychically. "Something just happened to Monica!"
Chandler's ode has riled Ross.
He demands satisfaction from Chandler,
produces two pistols, whereupon Chandler

It really hurt you when he said he didn’t care I you left, even if he probably didn’t mean it. You knew him to well to believe that. But since a few weeks you weren’t so sure anymore. You were always fighting, till you ended up crying yourself to sleep in your bed while he was lying on the couch in the living room, trying to sleep, what didn’t work most time and you heard him crying in the middle of the night.

Strong to kill all memories of you
I'm not broken hearted
Whatever you have started
I'm done with it

For deep within my heart malice burns so dimly but..
I am without shame.
It is sweet and yet it is bitter that my lies have taken flight.
That my fears and my woes have become an organ in my soul.
I am glorious in all things and in this evidence I am not without plight
but my lies will catch up and they will take its toll.

By burning waters, and smoldering bridges,
I await the genesis of our animosity.
Make the move that gives me permission to strike,
make the move that will bring about your end.
Near draws the line that which I advise you to never cross.
Though to my eyes comes the image of your sprinting legs.
It would seem, that through your veins flows pure pestilence,
and that you wish to bring upon me, nuisances by any cost.
Good God, such a fool bound for my throat,
knowing not the patient blade that waits.
Honor averts it's eyes, as your charge draws to an end.
It wishes this good and done, just as I.
A swift jerk of my arm to your direction,
and make you, a last descent to the ground below.
Then burden leaves my shoulders,
as life outward, pours from your filthy heart.
