Running scared

my heart is a chainsaw
chasing you in broad daylight
but I don’t care who else is playing this game
introduced you to the family
but you wouldn’t taste 
from a feast of fiends looking for friends
of apples and human meat
wrapped in the skin of a snake
like a siren you’re wailing
as in pain and danger
wanting the cops to come
calling doom
upon
the kitchen table
why’d you have to break everything we could’ve done?

Arbitrary species

Fireflies of the apocalypse

A cerebral pattern of psychedelic geography both of time and place where the external universe and inner space go where existential dread fears to tread

junkie switchblade glowing

angel gleaming in the backseat

carjacks a Mercedes with a blowtorch

ecstasy itself riding shotgun

peels the jeweled peach as motorized wheels burn a rubber haze

blind singing serial killers hiding inside nuclear clouds

feels like we’ve been here before

voluntary madness

in the time of corona 

Something about a dream

Something about a dream…
Something about a gun…
Something about something…
Something about nothing…
eyes wide shut
rapid fire pinballs
the realization that when I awaken- you’ll actually be here
perhaps even real
eyes guided by touch
feeling an image
sculpted by longing
fingers, loves, woods
sitting in a movie theatre
we feed off emotions
factory made
