Striving For Perfection Fucks Up Everything

 

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.

Nominee gushes.

Audience applauds exhaustively.)

She will manhandle me,

Liquor on her breath,

Feathers framing vagina.

Inflamed blossoms drenching submissions

She told me to delete

The photographs,

Even though there were many

Caught her beauty in…

In Lieu of the Princess's Departure

In search of what we do not know

desire what we cannot know

she seeks strange desires inflames.

Strange is the only life I’ve known.

 

When I was young

I thought for sure

Some girl would marry me

And we’d be happy.

 

I didn’t know

evils in this world,

tasks of aging disease death.

Under duress I vowed

 

to be good boy

Most of the time I’m scared.

Life is risky.…

In Lieu of Abuse

In Lieu of Abuse

I have problems with letting go, moving on, losing people. Nothingness is recurring nightmare. It seems like events around me aren’t good, but I get used to them, then ground pulls from under me, and I’m supposed to adapt, which I do too slowly, and grow accustomed to not good situations getting worse, when ground pulls from under me again, and here I am in recurring nightmare, only it’s reality.…

Uninvited Guest* Annexed

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

but must go separately

recognizing people and names

with alarming…
