Remember Me As Me

If I should find space in your memory once the seconds have drained from my time I pray I'm remembered just as I was I hope I'm not placed too high Not keen on leaving a saintly repute even saints have sinned in their hearts Don't think the bad or the good of me Just keep them as fat as they are Remember that I was giving-- but don't forget that my temper was hot Remember I looked on...

I Know Why

I know why the sky rolls on the edge of New Orleans The blue billows like the waves of Pontchartrain Angry waves, fervent ones, rise like dead from turquoise graves Collapsing clouds with the force of hurricanes Eve's approaching; rush, rush rush Must make arrival 'fore night comes The ceiling's black; no stars, no moon Shadows chase the remains of the sun Still in spite of the night...

She Buried Three

Mother tried her very best to tote my bones with care And sustain me with bread and good intentions, it was all that she could afford. She worried with each passing minute that my muscles were wasting away That my heart was not beating at its fullest strength That, like the others, I would not stay On nights when papa lay in a 'cross town ditch entertained by moonshine dreams...

To Wait For Things To Change

His love has been shown With hurried kisses Balled up fists, Illicit cross town visits Forty years of foolishness, stark regret on both sides, bruises and black eyes and futile halfhearted tries It has taken its toll and I am far too old, To wait for things to change. . . The whole damn town has laughed at me from the moment I said “I do!”, I’ve been...

I Am The Stranger

I am the stranger in my house This wretched run-down shack This hovel with pests and peeling paint and dirt floors from front to back Shards of glass from long broken windows Litter the furniture and floors But I never bother to sweep them up Cause it’s not my house anymore Dried blood stains the ceiling and corners There’s no love or light in this place The cold and dark...

Any Other Day

The morning was no different Still very much the same Nothing unusual Not a thing out of place I awoke with the buzzer Which gifted me an hour And trudged down the hallway To my usual morning shower The mirror displayed the very same face And those extra twenty pounds that would not go away The cereal was sweet And the milk was warm Not a thing about the day Seemed out...

Editor's Pick Censor My Pen

You will not pour ice on my mic Just because my lesson burns You’re not allowed to shame me ‘cause your mind's too closed to learn I refuse to change my words around Or remove a single phrase ‘cause my message is a mirror That reflects your naked face Race, religion, vices, or violence If it colors our existence Then my voice shall not be silent Still, you challenge my words And...

Untitled...but love is the answer

The sweet aroma from coconut shampoo Permeates the cells in the air I sit silently as she washes the silvery fuzz Which is all that remains of my hair All is quiet except the sound of the water Falling from my skin into itself And my eyes fix on the gauze and dressings That cruelly mock as they sit upon a shelf A garment that used to belong to me Hangs from the...

Finding The Write Words

She lay across the naked twin mattress That was haphazardly placed on the floor Propping up her notebook on her bare, bony knees Scribbling random words; trying to make them say more Words and the wonders she could create with them Had always been her true friends They provided an escape from a lonely existence And gifted her a peace few things did The soft amber glow from...

The Golden Letter

There was no mail in the box that day Just a lonesome little note It was opulently dressed in a gold leaf sheathe Gold wax stamped the back flap closed Black calligraphy skillfully addressed The letter in care of my name The return address was markedly absent And its postmark conspicuously the same The lone envelope felt very weighty As I clutched it tightly in my hand And although...
