*

I hate when people stare into my eyes

I take this action as a threat.

*

Someone keyed my car last night

As if I would really fucking notice

*

If Masturbation is a sin,

Does that mean that monkeys go to hell?

*

I dream of Buck Shot.

And no, that is not a gay porn star.

*

Why is it so damn hard

to get a good Reuben sandwich in this town?

*

Plastic pill bottle

Open - empty on the sink

Chase with alcohol.

*

In life,

nothing lasts forever.

Tell that to my tattoos.

*

Through my lens, I see

Nature ever decaying

The wasteland cometh.

*

Pen strokes on paper.

A heavy hand scribbles thought.

Rivers of ink flow.

*

Soup out of a can and nicotine stained fingers.

Beauty has left her,

*

O, YE HYPOCRITE!

YOU SPEAK THE NAME OF YOUR GOD WHILE KICKING A DOG.

*

Intoxicating,

Inhale putrid aroma.

Mouth Salivating.

*

A child is hungry while his mother cries for help.

The Church turns away.

*

I threw a brick through my television

Because that bastard speaks lies.

*

If I pay taxes for road maintenance

Then why do they look like shit?

*

The little blue men who drive flashy white cars -

Who the hell are they?

*
I'm late because I spent last night drinking alcohol -

What's your excuse?

*

Marijuana should be legal because the snack industry needs help.

*

A cigarette burning in the ashtray.

Black and White reality.

*

Melted crayons on the sidewalk.

Children leave behind great works of art.

*

*

*
