Some of Them

some_of_them_want_to_use_you____by_fannytkburton-d9010s3.png

Some of them

They know me by now

Questionably laughing

At the crying clown

 

Some of them

They like to hit mute

Creating the distance, the very same distance

That makes astute

 

Yet, some of them share

They hear my shit out

I know who they are

Never letting me pout

 

For those who like mute

For those who hang up

Pick a finger, any finger

And, stick-it-up your butt!

 

Me With Dr. Who

DrWho

I’m not sure what to do

I’m not sure who you are

I don’t know if you’ll dare

I don’t know if you’ll care

 

Let me share who I am

By saying who I’m not

It’s a double-dare

Like it or not

 

Myself in the flesh

And all that is red

It’s just me

My personalities

 

Myself in my head

And all that is blue

Would you terribly mind

If I told you the truth?

 

Sit, drink, and talk

Is what I would do

The same way

As with Dr. Who

NOT ANYMORE

Heart

I don’t believe in love

Not anymore

Not like I used to

Like I used to once before

————————————————

Betrayal between friends

The first you will see

Before you know it

A sociology degree

————————————————

Love in your twenties

It was rather dear

At least it seemed like it

That profitable year

————————————————

Love in your thirties

It was somewhat refreshing

Little do you know

So far from a blessing

————————————————

Here comes love at 40!

Well, 38, to be exact

Here he is; this is the one

The one that never says, “Thanks”

————————————————

There went love at 41

Faster than a smoking gun

Only three years before it quickly crashed

Other than that, simply trash

HONEY CAKE

HoneyCake.jpg

It’s not as heavy as it seems

It’s not as simple as it sounds

A frosted cake with whipped cream

Weighs no more than two pounds

 

It’s not as white as it looked in the book

The whipped cream is what it really took

It’s not as sweet as when you first bake it

A dessert moistened by an oil, hydrogenated

 

No matter what the time or the weather

Properly baked, always light as a feather

You don’t eat the cake because you’re hungry

It just reminds you of clover honey

THE BEDROOM

He died in here

It makes me fear

Of all the things

That no one hears

 

He died in here

It makes me think

Of how his life

Began to shrink

 

He died in here 

In this bedroom

On the floor

Behind a door

 

He’s been dead

For sixteen years

And all I want

Is to be near

 

Take me to him

To let him know

That all I want

Is to let go

Waiting for Luis

Here and there is everywhere

A taste of honey for everybody

A bite, a sting in everything
