New Reality

Light rays & tall heights

One good day makes a week worth living

The Ritalin is riveting, peers like

what I’m exhibiting.

Pondering past pantomimes, I too wish it behind me

I will rid my mind of your name,

so that nothing can remind me.


New lows & dark depths

I was late to my own funeral when I showed up at my cubicle

I crashed into absurdity now no one is insuring me

I dreamed I had a nemesis,

woke up wondering if she is venomous.

I have done a ton of dumb shit bordering on some Trump shit

I pushed my luck off a cliff then jumped off of it myself

I thought that I was Santa and to my surprise I was an elf

I summarized my life

and not a word was written

I gave someone advice

and what I said, I never did it…


I am but a pebble in this rock in space we live in

To tell vision I’m a boulder …I get why you’d be livid


I was swinging like a mood

and in truth had no opponent.

I was arrogant and rude

I know that you can no longer condone it.

I am feeling like you might – want to be my editor

With the set of skills that you possess

who could remain as our competitor?


I’m a jokester,

not a violent criminal.

I’m the type who’d let you have it

if we both reached for the last dinner roll

I am pausing to muse

over what you will do.

Your patience is a present

and your kindness is too.
