Literature
sir saint Patrick iii
"sir saint Patrick iii (final)
or the tale of Charlie and Saratoga i"
a winter's tale approaches:
the tale of charlie and saratoga,
and should this story have its beginnings
in the basement of my house,
i only ask for the blessing of sir saint patrick,
to guide me and provide me
with the love for them that i had
for no one else.

Literature
water insects
"water insects"
you were all dark green and
alaskan auroras; during those
days heaven was underwater,
the sky would alight at
early morning above the
willows, who never seemed
awake at all, really, but they
taught their tendrils to
touch the face of the lake--
we would swim through them,
those forest fingers of
sleeping trees, glide across
the glass face of the lake like
water insects.

Literature
smoke break
"smoke break"
living life in the hour between
first and second shift,
the lips stick and the neck is stiff.
must stop this, must stop this.
attempting to breath out back,
back break, back ache,
up late doing whatever it takes--
heart ache, heart break,
taking smoking breaks from smoking breaks.

Literature
the coroner
“the coroner”
only a coroner could value human life as a price tag,
callous nine to five,
only content with living--
no desire to be alive.

Literature
tablespoon
“tablespoon”
i am measured not
by the number of days in which
i have never left her side, while wanting
only happiness for her.
but by how much she is annoyed
when i ask her, “are you okay?”

Literature
touched
"touched"
i had a poem come and touch my fingertips--
i should have written it then,
because, like buying that stuffed teddy bear
years before you know you’ll need it,
and you do know you’ll need it,
i need that poem now.
and it’s not here.

pearl jam

The man of the hour has taken his final bow, good-bye for now…
i.
fear i felt as i stepped
into the house where
i would face it again,
promised that it was
a good movie. she did
warn me, told me to
come with water wings,
i don’t know how to
swim in these kinds
of things. i wondered
how bad i’d choke and
drown.

he met Death, in a dare,
on it’s front door—
told him how he’d die.
from a glass Eye.
(he didn’t know that when it came
it would still be a surprise.)
on his bed he told us the rest of his life.
about a small town conquered.
how he escaped with a giant.
about how he became lost in
a haunted forest, and danced
with the Spectres.
and promised Death’s daughter
something she’d never—
not even when she’s dead.

cold
"cold"
my wind chapped corpse,
frost flowing full force,
remember, remember!
the first of december
it's snowing outside
as i walk to my car
and i can't for the life of me
forget why i wanted to be cold

trees
i walk to a forest;
pretend you're the trees
and i scream and i scream.
but all i get,
is the coldest reply:
silence.

Literature
the enchantress
my eyes raped by a blitz of blue hue,
the touch of sweat and passion and lust
on my lips, the taste of rust of my tongue,
the music of the night is neverending here;
the girl to my right spins like a planetary system,
her body moves like a solar flare,
her aura is an astral phenomenon--
her hands are sand traps, her eyes a snare.
oh christ what have i become?

Literature
sir saint Patrick, ii
you know,
you never would lie next to me on my bed
but when i needed it the most.
i felt you there, that night,
as i wept and begged you to stay.
and when you told us
it was time,
and that you had to go,
that your duty was done;
that i was ready and
god had greater things for you,
i found it funny that
you still found it relevant
to act like a dog,
in a place where we bring dogs to die.
and i think it’s true,
what our friend ben said:
that love is watching someone die.
i remember laying with you
throughout the night, your breathing heavy,
your paw pads hardened by rough times.
rolling into me, you adjusted your position
and we spoke with our eyes--
you had stolen my voice;
would not allow me to cry.
“cory, man, it’s time for me to die.”
and when we finally sent your soul away,
to sail across the seven seas of the sun,
to soar on high to your place within the seraphim,
mother chanced one last look, crying,
across your gilded form,
and saw what you wore for so long,

dear god,
if you could send my soul back to me
in a ziploc baggie, so i can snort it off bathroom counter
and get high off of self discovery,
i would appreciate it.
thanks.
p.s. she keeps it locked inside a snake in a box
that she keeps in her car so her mother doesn’t find it
and throw it away.

dear god,
it started raining today--
i was standing in the middle of a parking lot,
so i ran to my car.
i think you know what happened next.
losing faith,
cory
~~~
dear god,
why can’t you bless me with
the presence of such a someone;
not place them so far away?
cory
~~~
dear god,
i’m going to smoke myself opium-sick;
all the lights and sounds will seem profound,
and the bathroom floor will seem warmer now,
the sky will be black,
the sun will be blue,
but my blood will run red,
as it always
tends
to
do
love,

dear god,
she says it would be a pretty poem.
i think so too, and i’m trying to write it
but it’s just so god damn hard to do,

dear god,
you’re ridiculous you know that? just some of the things you do.
like half your creatures.
you make ridiculous things.
like humans,
and zebras.
puzzled,

dear god,
i used to read this user named less_than_that on an internet forum i visit. i’m sure you know all about it. well you know, i think he was the first person i ever felt compassion for. maybe it’s because everything he wrote was about me. it was really about him, but you know what i mean. anyway. he doesn’t post anymore, he doesn’t show up on dA. i miss him. i miss having that comforting feeling, knowing he existed. and he was black.
so i think you killed him.
and that you’re a racist.
only you get my humor sometimes.
love,
cory

dear god,
i bet you’re an ivy league prick who only talks to people in Sanskrit.
and you can’t even talk in Sanskrit.
