Like owls on a branch
They sit on the balcony
Hooting their sex calls

A Distant Dance In The Eyes

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2011 by dc

Like the creases
On an elephants skin,

A sweatless mass
Of dry, erased memories,

Thoughts heavy as clay,
A distant dance in the eyes.

A spittleless mouth
Frittering words,

Cracked with emotion,

The herd gets a notion

Something is fading away.

Cameo

Please sit down,
You smell of hot dogs
And suicide,

There’s a hat on your bed,
Dead birds on the floor,
Lizards haunt your dreams,

Your double-yolked eggs
Are long gone.

They’ll build you a bench
For the love that you’ve shared,

So close your eyes as you die,
The world’s pulling close.

The After Show

Sat on the porcelain throne,
Letting his legs go numb,
He sighs like a cow
In an old open field,

Mud enveloping grass.

I always thought I was great,
He mutters,
Such a shame it’s turned out

That I’m not.
