Night Noise and Rabbit Twitch





Night Noise and Rabbit Twitch

He comes at 3 am.
Bamboo rattles, clicks, no cricket sound.
Wears a suit of night noise and rabbit twitch--
his foot falls are a flute full of roaches.

Moonlight
strings her
between trees.

Shadows of wings trace
books on the nightstand,
no knife glint,
no gun to start a fire.

She coils against spiders
who’ve stopped their spinning--
who suck beetle fat and watch.

Night of terror
don’t you know a song cannot prevent
the wasp’s repeated sting?

The door frames nothing
but the strangle-knot
you pull
into a snare.

  2. Deep Sleep
    So tired, didnt get much sleep,
    Gunshots rang throughout my street.
    Locked in my house afraid to go outside,
    Really wanted to go out for a nite ride.
    Turn on the t.v., two more dead,
    Hauted me in my sleep as I lay to bed.
    Kids can't even walk to the store down the block,
    "Bang, bang, bang, bang", four shots from a double glock.
    Laying on the ground gasping for air,
    They pull the trigger with no disspear.
    Laying in the street being held by his wife,
    It's so hard out here to live our life.
    Starring at his body as we all cry,
    All we can do is step back and ask why?

  11. purple love

    a purple rose-
    sui generis allurement,
    a green sensation,
    keepsakes of thistly thorns,
    fairytales of long ago:

    he picked her beauty.

    a rouge rosebud raving
    for purple passions
    that prickled piercings,
    a preterit prelude

    purple pretermit.

  14. Strangers.
    Unknown, nothing
    Stepping out, distance between self, far off in the horizon.
    Confusion, hard, soft, comprehension
    Ripping renaissance, music amplified, heaven's door opens.
    Blissful, sweet
    Lovers.

    I don't know where to go
    turn left, turn right
    go straight or go back

    right this very moment
    decision must be made
    right this very moment

    Insane in the membrane,
    beginning to end!
    purple haze all around.
    can you see yourself?
    Someone missed her dose...
    one day at a time?
    Don't judge, Can't escape...
    He's got a knife!
    He's got a gun!
    He's got my Kids!
    He's got my soul!
