It only takes a
Single spark to start a fire
But coffee sure helps

When it’s bright outside
I see the world through squinty eyes

Two million in jail
While Rosa Parks lies in State
It’s a long struggle…

Outside the barber shop
As my hair grew longer
Smokin’ with the boys

Mum

Searching…Mothers’ Day…
Church of the Sacred Body Part
She wasn’t there

Her wax drips fuchsia
Warm and shimmering her locks
Glow soft in my hand

From one dick to another
End this endless war

Fish bent into swastikas
Death and lies and blood

With the certainty
Of a traffic light she smiles
And me all nervy

Self proclaimed expert
Suspicious hyperbolic
A finger pointer

Law Enforcement to take you seriously
Without a pseudonym

Sleeping these days, his pillow
Is kept stuffed with cash

Of young Innocents kept alive for
Happy hour at the Yacht Club

Doctor Pepper
Is the only healthcare
Many can afford
