I watch the news
And glad
I no longer live there


Angel On A Bus

Burn within

On this bus
Amongst the rust

Sweet surprise
Ebony eyes
Angelic smile

What Now, Old Cow?

What are you going to do now?
I don’t know
I know the general things
I have to eat, breathe
The mundane, I got that
But what now?

Fuck I wish I had someone to talk to
My friends?
I’ve known none of them longer than a year or two
Dope smoking, Magic playing buddies
Close acquaintances at best
My family?
That’s one of the things I want to talk about
Maybe. Yeah, but no
All I can do is rant at you
Fuck I wish I had someone to talk to

Fire Dances

Flames crackle and dance
My thoughts turn to romance
And your sweet brown eyes crinkling
As I close in, thinking
To steal a kiss

00 fire-girl-1280x800Devil eyes
Desire sighs
From your lips
My fingertips
Long to linger
Across your face
Into space
Burning bright
Feeds the flame
That is your name

00 cat fire-cat

Sitting by the fire
Flames lovingly consume the wood
As my desire
Wicks my soul into the night
Soft alpine ashes
Rise into the gloaming
Butterfly lashes
As my thoughts go roaming
Once more to you
