MOLECULES

No Broom Could Chase Me.



Self-Improvementizing....(yes, I made up a new word)

Big Is No Little Adjective. (revised)

The Off Brand

Taking Up Alley Living

YOU DO NOT GROW OLD

Out On The Street

THE MILES THAT ARE LEFT TO GO...

I Need To Fly

Burying the Dark

Judging The Rain

Mister Misbegotten.

The Haircut Thing

The Bare Bones

Lull the Day to Night

Every One of Us Has a Door....

The House Is Alive

THEY NAMED ME ENOUGH

THE CRYPT OF THE KEPT AND THE KEEPER

UNDECIDED

Patch-Worked Trilogy

To Them, I am Dead, I am Dead

Uncovered

Someone Send Out A Search Party

Knock, Then Come Through

Elise, Elise

Great Big Waterproof World

The Blue Buffalo

The Bare Bones



I know how
I cover my face
and scoff
too much emotion
makes me want to run off

tilting myself at reality,
and garnering myself
an academy award

if it isn't life on my terms--
flail about with octopus arms
lose the charm
blossom

rarely these days do you find
a smile
on my face
an alien to my nature
perhaps the entire human race

its easier to manage
through derision
living life by indecision

afflicting myself with frenzy
chicken little sky falling down
like menses

my atmosphere
chilly and raw
like winter rain

this
won't do
and yet I
continue to
hide behind
false fronts like religion

I'm not interested
in being interesting
too self-involved
un-evolved
and ready for the tree
as my cross...

this is my new therapy now.
