Comprehending Hypocrisy

Another predilection

The same human

In a different monster

I’ve said I loved her


Denying it existed

Americans and Pharisees

Passing through

A gutted gold mine


If any word could help

I’d save it for my final gasp

Ice calming poison soothing

White steel linen brooding


Indecent Exposure

I cannot get the taste

of some imaginary poison

out of my mouth

my head will implode,

that much is for sure

sperm in flames

eggs encased in concrete

this story will remain untold

for each letter betrays one another

there is no worth in poetry


my life is merely

another poorly-made reconstruction
