Another

Blackie comes on
while I write a
series of strange haiku
Shut ‘Em Down by Public Enemy
starts up
another drink? yes
okay so I am here
at the wall of speakers
this band is like
Dubstep hardcore
very 2008
pissing is out
getting it out
I like Nike but wait a minute
come on
what is this one
and what is this nagging
ache in my chest?
you know I’m
a slow crawl storyteller
give me a chance I’m honing
my craft
have a ways ta go
Sam hold tha cord
a disregard I’ll try
to be the exception
say hello
the lone Texas ranter says hello
what’s your penpal account
we should be for real friends
then one approaches introducing friend
the end is nigh is not just a river…
so um fo fum
it is not at all fun waking
to such bad memories and insults
the words and self
self makes a better self
see as I do
do as I do
watch learn
watch and earn
it’s the big points
on the scoreboard exceptionally
expectant with weight

anything I can bring
to soothe you
I know your childhood
weighs heavy
because mine… well…
was a motherfucker
