promise #7

i promise not to stare
at the new way

you think about

promise #6

the affection of a feline
is manifest on the pillow

when he wants to be fed his morning milk

promise #5

that every time you apologize
you mean it

that every time you hold me
you want to

that every time i need you
you'll be there

i know you will.

promise #4

in the middle of the day
as you drift
in and out of every corner of your small office
with too much space
for other people

he will come
all smiles and with
a gift in a paper bag
where a paper napkin absorbs the grease
from a sweet cake he bought you

at a deli with a name
you can't pronounce

i want one!

promise #3

someday, on a fishing trip
you will catch a fish so large
that when you tell people how big it was
without lying
they still won't believe you

because no one tells the truth
about fish

except you

promise #2

someday your horoscope
will be true.

promise #1

someday, how
allen ginsberg will turn around
and spit in the other direction

save the muffin bottom for you, when
at the invitation
to the birthday party for someone you don't know

don't forget to bring a card.

my first dread central review

i helped bring poetry to the horror community by reviewing Let's Just Agree to be Gay".

i'm surprisingly proud of the fact that my name graces a dread central page beyond a photo caption.

though, be warned, this isn't for the faint of gut.

a more perfect union

this is a long video, a long speech. but one worth sitting down for all 39 minutes of and listening to with as much attention as you can devote.

nine am

underwhelmed by the grayscale of morning
and the thin veil of sugared fruits for taste
