Yesterday, Sean Spicer, white house press secretary resigned when someone was brought in from the outside to serve as communications director, the position Spicer hoped to be given. I can’t imagine anyone wanting that job, or any job in the Trump administration, but then I can’t imagine a world of alternative facts, and the belief that any news that does not agree with your concept of reality is “fake news”.
At the same time that Sean Spicer was resigning I was…Continue
Much has been said about our friend, James Mark.
The man one person knew as simply Jem.
A man who sucked the other person in
To a secret that each one felt a part
Blake or Emerson it mattered not
Within their words he…Continue

Secretly believing someone is watching
And will benevolently arrive, relieve the pain
When planets collide, lots of stuff goes awry
Every breath you take implicates you deeper
The constant cry of babies being born
Expect monsters worse than you can conceive

Stomped its hooves
Kicked her in stomach pregnant with you

I’m the worst cunt in the world
No one is worse than me.
For my next bride,
I shall marry the Queen of She
Ba (Academy presents her majesty.
Audience applauds exhaustively.)
She will manhandle me,
Liquor on her breath,
Feathers framing vagina.
Inflamed blossoms drenching submissions
She told me to delete
Even though there were many
Caught her beauty in…Continue
This is a non-sequiter, I so stipulate, but I visited Alice Liddel's grave during one of my UK trips. There was nothing remarkable about it. It's a simple grave behind a country church, marked by a small stone, laid flat, that does not mention that she was the real Alice, made immortal as Alice in…Continue
Uninvited Guest* Annexed
We are seated on opposite sides of ottoman,
Brother and sister,
long history of knowledge tenderness contention attachment,
sharing glances psychological plotting.
The uninvited guest plops down between us
large foreign hand touches both our thighs
We look beyond to each other
The intruder senses our bond
knows where we belong
but must go separately
