4. Ninety-Seven Pitches of Silence

We gather today
To mourn the death of a member of our community
And to talk about all the ways they were a great person
Which we didn’t tell them while they were alive
Because then they would have felt good

We remind everyone
That it is never hopeless
Because there are so many resources one can use
That know what’s going on and help find hope
We don’t know why people avoid them

As long as we remember
That we have these gatherings upon a loss
We can pat ourselves on the back for our empathy
Just remember to do the same thing
Next time

5. Chainsaw

I beheld
A sparkling unicorn
Riding a rainbow
Into a cloud
Made of happiness itself

6. Chartreuse

Once we were friends
Back then we took walks
And knew a strange being
Of light greens it talked
But a frozen smile came
Sheathing taste buds forsaken
Cheering sky into grayscale
And the light greens forgotten
The air bled of lungs
And all then in sight
Was a terrific mass
Of blinding deep white
The beast is still there
But once we were friends

7. Pus from a Knuckle

Spilling
Spilling
Spilling
Spill
Spilled
Drip

8. Eraser’s Edge

  1. Hey thanks I just found your post on the sex life of Zeus by way of google, well done. I have no idea how you compiled all that. I’m writing on Yeats Leda and the Swan. Thanks again. –Pat Casey
