The New Fiction

These people do not exist Just a figment of my imagination All binary bits Put together for my fascination Everything is possible But, nothing is sacred Everything is plausible Until you erase it I'm addicted To new beginnings Before everything falls apart So let's start over And over And over again Keep your eyes on the road ahead The streetlights are all gone Turn the radio up its playing Our favorite song I can't go back I'm tied in knots The new fiction's growing old All these lies that I tell myself just Leave me cold Leave me cold Put on a different face The real one is not good enough to see Leave not a trace Of whatever you used to be

Is it any wonder That it fell apart? Best intentions were laid to waste Right from the start She says, "come back to the city" A million shades of gray Leave your blue skies far behind Watch them fade away Let's turn it around Before we all fall down Past perfect The present's just insane All these little lies I lit Sparks turn to flames The embers of every mistake Burn just the same She says, "step back from the water" You're drunk on fantasy This house of cards is tumbling down Now we're finally free Let's turn it around Before we all fall down Past perfect present can't contain I lost the war inside Wounded my selfish pride No more last goodbyes To the city

This our last stop Our long stop Where the windows are broken Sitting in the backseat playing games Wondering why the streets are numbered And not named Through a dirty filter He rounds to the front Cursing under his breath Wearing rage on his sleeve Fill up the gas tank Slam the door and pull away Just pull away This is a long drop A final full stop On a hopeless forced charade Yelling from the front seat laying blame I hope these blurring roads fade Into the rain Through a pinhole to the past She tries to smile And make light of all That’s going dark Here’s our exit now Turn the wheel and pull away From this haunted highw

Masses in the Stellar Graveyard

The moon smiled when nothing was wrong Left me inside all these rumors Now the dark demanded pretty scales Weighing the loss in cold cold waves Don’t wish wrong with your heart While your mind goes red passing blame Your alarm bells may be alive But, your eyes are hopeless, hungry The moon would break then disappear Left me inside all these possible futures Morning provides all the evidence Sunlight drains all the doubt the good times lock your eyes like soft frozen winter

Behind a Glass Door

And it's all right there in plain view Hands press against the transparent surface, smooth and clean I stare bleakly into the future, perfect and unyielding It fits like an old glove over all my desires Made real by so many hours of discourse By tears that continue to fall Forming rivers that divide us further We are mountains on opposite continents Unmoving and ever-watching Sadly staring down As the ants below us go about their makeshift lives We wish to be that small and simple Wish we did not crumble At every twitch of the weather Every crack of thunder Every gloomy overcast sky We can see each other in the distance

Reflection

Reflection

I haven't always been a good friend. I can blame that on a lot of things. A weakness of character, over-reliance on validation, chemical abuses, medicated indifference, conflicted feelings competing with rigid self-imposed obligations. I don't know, take your pick or all of the above. But, the bottom line is: I haven't always been a good friend. I'm buried in work and school and health issues. Dizzy spells, hearing loss in my left ear, they say it is Meniere's Disease. I have to take pills for that now, on top of the pills I already take. I'm a chemical cocktail just to function at this point. MRI showed nothing but an old head injury from
