Villain


I fade in, will you
Fade out with me?
Hand drawn circumstance
Cold blue steel
Color of a gun
In my hand
Color of a man
Will you,
Will you fade out with me?

Long before the panel
Judged what I had to say
Before I was just a few pages
Drawing a blank
I was just trying
Aren't we all just trying
Before the comic starts?

I fade out
Will you fade with me?
Fate in blocked cells
Ink for fingered prints
Under a yellow sun
I burn away
And the world turns
Will you
Will you, burn away with me?

Long after the dark night
Left me branded
In the pages yet unwritten
Blank, ready to be drawn
I'm still trying
God, aren't we all just trying
After the comic ends?

I Want to Evolve


i have nothing
i never did
but i see the patterns
we create
the habitual
habits
we populate

an endless topography
of scapes we've already climbed
reliving our reliving
of our re-relived lives
a life that is
like a construction paper snowflake
cut at the same angles
unseen till the foldout
we are everything we already were
but i want to evolve
want to be something more

I have nothing
I never did
I want to evolve
But I likely never will

Caffeine Shakes

Everyone said she died of a broken heart
It was her turn
As the wheel spun
She was young but that doesn't matter
Brilliant but her words are now forgotten
The grey matter replaces and condenses every whisper of her

Sometimes pass and some more after that
Another her
Another turn
As life left her tired
Death left her breathless
She was young but that doesn't matter
Brilliant but her words are now forgotten
The brain pan rewinds and resets till there's very little left

Dead words from closed lips still lingering in my ears
When the wheel spins again, will it be my turn?
I'm still young but that never matters
A little foolish, and these words are already forgotten
Someone else and someone else and others yet
Will defrag and untag and reset
'Til there's little left to say
'Til there's nothing left.
And so on and so forth
'Til the earth is our only epitaph.

Darkness Renewed

Even nightmares aren't so bad anymore.
Shadows lift, sigh, and fall back to the ground.
It's night out this morning. The sun didn't rise.
No eclipse.
No parables.
No light.
The evening was a reverie of bubbles and desire.
Floating through the ceilings of the trendiest of places.
She was there, and so was he, and also his gal.
We were fearsome in our devilish quartet.
Music followed us around the boardwalk.
Times were, what they were meant to be.
Love, and mystery.
Excitement and trepidation.
Dauntingly, a roundabout of emotions.
Now sings the morning that didn't dawn.
Now the burden of a cathedral's bell's ringing.
Men, women, and children fleeing.
Nowhere and everywhere at once.
And from what?
Nothing in the darkness seems to bite.
There are no call outs of bullets or bombs.
No poisonous whispers of burning agendas.
Nothing but the dark.
And I lay here with her,
She lays here with me.
Looking out the bedroom window,
Into the black.
I think we'll stay in today.

Poor Ida

Poor Ida
Oh, Ida
Poor Ida, she don't know what she needs
Poor Ida
Oh, Ida
Poor Ida, she don't know what she needs

She needs a hot tub full of water
She needs the bubblin' jets blue
She needs a real bright diamond' finger
And the matchin' earrings too

Oh...

Poor Ida
Oh, Ida
Poor Ida, she don't know what she needs
Poor Ida
Oh, Ida
Poor Ida, she don't know what she needs

She needs a window side seat to Vegas
She needs a turnkey poolside flat
She needs an alibi out of order
And she better well get one fast

Oh...

Poor Ida
Oh, Ida
Poor Ida, she don't know what she needs
Poor Ida
Oh, Ida
Poor Ida, knows what she wants but not what she needs

When The Last Petal Falls

Did you hear the rumor?
Did you see the sunset?
Will you be out-back-side,
When the last petal falls?

I'm dreaming of sprouts
And dandelion dust clouds
What will go on
When the last petal falls

Did you hear her laughter?
Did you see her smile?
Will you be there with her,
When the last petal falls?

Girl A

When you go to sleep
In your closet
What's in the back of your mind
Is it a secret?
Are you haunting them
Feeling haunted?
Chaste, you're feeling down
Cast your feelings down

They say
When the lights go out
There's murder in your heart.
Was it all just a game
Or an honest mistake?
Did you tie her up
Did she keep you down?
Find a way back
Find your way back

Found you online
Or did you find them?
Wanna play a flash game
Gonna play a flash game...
