Bad Guy

Bad Guy

Judgment Day
The time could come 
for all the dangerous decisions
to finally surface;
The ball in a chosen man’s court

Is it so hard to see
that behind the eyes of the bad guy
is maybe somebody who sees,
in either you or in me,
a set of eyes belonging
to his or her bad guy

Hand-wringing
The birds are not singing
outside the window,
on the branches of trees shaped leafless
Heart-racing
Will the chosen man be sending
all of the blame today

Is it so hard to see
that behind the eyes of the bad guy
is maybe somebody who sees,
in either you or in me,
a set of eyes belonging
to his or her bad guy

Accuser versus the accused
Liquid soaking through a pressed shirt
of a man, could be around 35
Tension ripping through his organs
like a knife

Blood on the floor

Fly away, foul thoughts
Fly away, it can’t be so bad 
Fly away, to happy places
Fly away, all the dreams can still happen

Is it so hard to see
that behind the eyes of the bad guy
is maybe somebody who sees,
in either you or in me,
a set of eyes belonging
to his or her bad guy

A Letter to Paris

A Letter to Paris

Boredom sets in
9-5 Job
I am no machine
So, Doc can you please
Scoop out what is truly Me;
Pour metal into this body

My spirit, you must see

Requires deep renovations 
Send what you remove
To Paris, France—
As per these exciting and
Most recent r
eservations

Could have been

Could have been

Just a minute of your time, please
Let’s have a seat
Need to tell you something
About what could have been

Wrestling in my mind
Over and over
Time and time again—
I have wondered 
What I could have done different;
And if, I could go back, 
I would be the person
Who did make happen
What I think should have been

Please let me finish,
No interruptions, if you don’t mind
I promise not to take
Much more of your time

The moment we are having
Is here and we will never
Be able to go back again

Now, look into my eyes

(I have no more words)
To make you see,
What I do believe,
Could have been…

A Gust of Wind

A Gust of Wind

A gust of wind
Brings me right back in
Inward, once again

With a deep breath
In the nose
Out the mouth,
I can handle the outside
With fortitude

Falling leaves—
They remind me:
The past cannot be
Replayed;
The future is not here

The only way
I can truly be
Is to keep breathing,
Let rise and fall keep happening
Inside of me

A Latte Moment

Latte at Café Martin; Brooklyn, NY 

Cigarette and Coffee

Just now,
I would like a cigarette and my coffee
You know, sometimes, it’s not two for tea
Alone, the sun is shining down on me
Whilst I soak up the caffeine

Lovely, in the interim,

Please do not speak to me
I just like a cigarette and my coffee
