Mean Reds

it’s a scary place
this red room
where I lay
burying my face

it wasn’t new though
this red room
never sure when
I’d be there, true

some they run away
some they hide
some they take it all
take it all in stride
some they pamper
some they fear
some they take it all
and bring it here
to this red room
this red room
I’ll come back soon

Mud (December 2006)

who would have known?
back to the drawing board…..

rain surrounding
a puddle of mud
where I lay
helplessly shamed
melancholic and merciless
I tie these beams
strength in hands only
unaware of hope
open to nothing
I’m not well
and I sang too much

under me lies ground
unfamiliar and true
the incubated sadness gutting me
sidles up and winks
such a jerk
and buries me in splashes
as he passes me
slamming fists in the mud
