When People Go

The Day You Left (Words From A Half-Remembered Dream)

Wake Wake Wake

All For Algernon

Weak In The Knees

Its About Waking In The Middle Of The Night And Having To Write It All Down

Revenge (written in the summer of 1981)

(written as a nineteen year old before entering college)

If I could
I'd put on four pair
of long feathery legs
and appropriate sting-ware

Then I'd frighten you into a corner,
and once you were there...
close in, bite, then ensnare you,
carry you off without a prayer.

I'd drag you away
to my cozy spider nest.
Sip on your blood.
Then devour the rest.

There'd be no qualms.
No tears. No regrets.

For it is He who plays
with deadly spiders
who deserves
what He gets.
