No, We’re Not Friends Anymore
My freshly washed hair is still damp against my scalp
Bound by a plastic jaw with a squeaky hinge
In a knot that’s so tight it feels my ears are pulled back.
Moonlit Lies
A sliver of pain hanging in the midnight ink
Don’t be silly, that’s the moon he says
As his lips nuzzle my ear
Sending zillions of pleasure pulses racing to my synapses
The Taste Of Your Skin
The rain comes
And I stand there drenched
Till my bones, outlined in silk
The colour of the sullen sky,
Rise Up Baby
I try and rise above the fear-induced fog in my mind
Above the lemon-rind bitterness that loving and leaving
Leaves behind, residual regret resounds off the walls
Of my aching but throbbingly alive consciousness
Oh Fie! Office! ! !
I'm getting used to how it feels
to be a cog in the wheels of efficiency
where friendship is the garb of choice and preferred medium to convey the static noise
of officialese, to cloak politics and veil jibes
Bumper Sticker Advice
The world is a small place, life is short,
live in the moment, be a sport…
The only thing that grates more than a pithy homily
Is all-purpose, bumper sticker, catch-phrase advice.
Ciggie Break
The stairwell reeks of stale smoke
That curls upwards toward the ceiling
And hangs suspended in the barely moving heat
As controlled air meets warm currents that force
Regret? You Bet
Who says I’m counting out the days
And the minutes and the hours since you took your love away
Who says I miss your smile, your warmth, your eyes
And the look of sheer surprise when you realized you loved me
Meeting Games
Eyeing the quarry over Martini glass rims at a bar
Backing up on one another on a crowded dance floor
Courtesy in a supermarket checkout line
Gallantry with a late night cab on a lonely street
10 Piggy Protest Parade
I wore my sneakers to class today
Ten little piggies protested loudly
Preferring the grimy freedom
Of straw chappals and roadside sandals
