I finger fuck you
my bone splinters
and I beg you to keep it
not even the heroin aficionados
know an addiction like this
they don't know the fucking half of it
what they do know is
that this street is my bed
and where I spit
is where I lay my finished head
they know our names
and they know about
the time I molested myself in public
they know about the
prescription drug love affair
and the night I amused myself
by throwing empty beer bottles
from a second story window
but they will never know
how good it feels to
decompose inside of you
the night I choked you
and fell asleep in my car
I'm sure they would have
heard about that too

I watch the prostitutes waltz
to the cry of the car alarm symphony
the hum of this city is my warm orgasm
ripening, spreading and pulsating
concealing our worst fears that occupy these streets
kids setting their hands on fire
and coffee stained books leaking
into bent necks and modern dance
oh how we danced
oh how we fucked

waking from ache, the

Broken MelodyA broken melodyBroken Melody7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Holds a key
Deep within the chords
Of a rundown piano,
Where I used to play
A song of relief,
While browsing the pieces
Of my song book
Turning the pages,
Scribbling a note,
So I could bring back
That once played
The keys to my heart
With a resounding tone
As I recall every song
I have played
with my piano,
That I almost forgot
What it really means,
To be alive...
A broken melody.

How's it going.
I think you know what I'm going to say, I can tell in your eyes that you know
and that you know that I know that you know.
You're beautiful, everything about you is unique.
Everything you say amazes me.
Everything you like, I like.
it's almost as if it's destiny.
There's just...something about you that's like no other human being I've ever met.
And when I think about your smile, and your hair, and your eyes, and your face, and your voice
I just light up, like a little christmas tree almost.
Sometimes I just think of you, and I smile.
That hasn't happened to me in a long time.
(I'm talking in monologues again, it's a really bad habit. But isn't talking in parenthesis also a really bad habit?)
I know I'm being all gushy
but I'm going to do something that I've wanted to do for a while:
there was this Ramones song on their self titled record.
I was wondering if you knew if.
The first line goes:
"Hey little girl, I wanna be your boyfriend."

In the middle of the night when I wake with nightmares Ill ask you
Will you please come home? I need you. And youll respond Im sorry I cant.
At night when you call, youll whisper to me that youre so afraid Ill off myself before you come home.
And I bet its awful to know that you caused this.
Id give anything to forget that you swore you loved me and then you threw it all away, and stupid stupid me tried to salvage it, I cant even salvage myself. I hate you for doing this to me.
Im the kind of broken that means
three year old temper tantrums on the bathroom floor
because I think that maybe someone will bring you home when
they cant stand to listen to me anymore.
And not sleeping for three days because the nightmares wont stop.
And drinking half a bottle of vodka because it brings back me

I'm still drinking
I swear to you, this night is different
I ask the prick in the sky for a taste
the scent of a cunt
clean lips and all
nothing too dry
I'm getting more and more impatient these days
I miss my lover man
he's knee deep in the scent
ohio has blessed him with all the cunt he can eat
I can imagine him now
beard between thighs
drunk as a skunk
laughing like a goddamn fool
his intellectual tongue
like a fish out of water
fucking his agnostic lover
I ask the prick in the sky for a taste
I'm getting more and more impatient these days

with barely suppressed energy;
he hums with her vibrations
her skin is moonlight
and he hesitates even as he rises
with details -- a line of shadowed vertebrae,
the giving of herself in the curve
of arm about her head, the unconcerned
angle of a leg revealing her sex
a sharp crack, and again -- echoed
by the soft staccato of pillow-cries
and warm wet answers
he is absorbed in the bloom
of scarlet poppies under his hand
even as he cools their heat
in a slow exhale over tender kisses
Today's Lesson Is TopographyToday's Lesson Is Topography10 years ago in Erotic More Like This
Hey, tonight's lecture is on topography. Lie back and let me navigate, I've got all the maps. I will lead you down a course, discoursing as we go about those damn fool nights of two shots too many. Tonight's lecture is no story, song, or rhyme but a lesson in math of the wildest kind. The geometry in our curves bends like so. Watch your footing.
Now, I've got some graphs for your ears which require closer examination.
I knew a dead girl once. Upon meeting her in that dark corner of Serengatto's (it means something in one of those love languages of romance lands) she said
"Do you remember dying?"
and I said
"First I'd like to remember living
lets return to this communiqué
once we find the ground."
I had never played words with a dead girl before.
We made visual love there, on those too small seats of Serengatto's, our eyes conjoining in ways profane and delightful. So I knew her methods and wily means before we even said hello, or what passes for that in these parts. It was

i told you at least once a month
once a week, maybe twice
how i loved sunflowers
and how i thought roses were overrated
(too many metaphors for things like love and shakespeare)
those are something else
they grow and grow and grow
untill they are too big for their own stems
they try to touch the sky
like they just know
they were meant to be bigger
than the universe planned
i respect that type of ambition in a flower
you didnt understand
why i wanted you to bring me one
when i grew them in my front yard
it's just different
(i was trying to help you)
now it's autumn
and my garden is all but dead
and you are all but gone
i still never got my sunflower
but i keep those two dead red roses
pressed in an old biology textbook
maybe they will learn something
about the human heart
that you just never understood.
