Show Poem: At best I accommodate the leaving… July 12/ Evansville, IN / PG #SchwervonPoetry

Schwervon!


Disturbed by
The over use of the word love

Extraordinary emotional moment
Something escapes me slowly
With no reason or pattern

At best
I accommodate the leaving

Hide the dying fly
With a cup of coffee
Biscuits and gravy
Half empty Sirachi bottle

Addicted to pretzel shapes
And cheap nuts

Busy hiring others
To promote your lack
Of promotion

Slicing through mountains
Bleeding boulders
Pouring dreams out
From the trunk of our car

Drunk tweeting
I’m so old
I don’t give a fuck
Bullshit you’re better than that
My people!

Waking up at 8 going to bed at 5

The under use of the word love

We’re not just running a business here
We’re fighting a war
We are building a life
It would be so easy
To just take the medicine
Connect the dots
Punch te click

Something has to change
It might as well be us

Show Poem: YouTube is mad at Facebook… July 09/ Pittsburgh, PA / Gooski’s #SchwervonPoetry

Schwervon!


She was the kind of girl
That seemed off balance
Without a beer in her hand
One arm slightly longer
Than the other
Head permanately tilted
To the right

The Car rings like an old telephone
The heavy air almost deafening

YouTube is mad at Facebook

I slept at the old Smucker
Farm last night
My pillow was full of jelly

I dreamed all
The lost phone chargers
The clean canteens
And fancy face soaps
were back with me

I swear I felt that bird
In my hair
Came swooping down
And nearly missed the car

Sad people who don’t
Know how to eat
Like every meal requires bread

Trying to soften the blows
Of the many Passing days

Hot sauce nightmares
Tickling the squares

Everyone has a shady side
Blowing smoke up
Our own asses
Romanticly using the past
Dissecting our
Cancerous butt lungs

We cough up the fantasies

Paradise at the super market


Paradise at the super market
No longer my job to worry

All the blues and reds.
I can stand for hours

Details
Cold air section

Kaleidoscope of
Plastic lids

So many words not to read
So much protection
So much life

Frozen fat
Chocolate heart

Smiling women
Choices carved in cheese

The war on salad
Sacrificing vegetables

A house of bread
You are everywhere

Lemons and
Cans

Decoding their message

Stay away from that
Can you help me?

I can do this myself

The collards are clean
They whisk through me
Like a wire brush

It’s so good to live
When you’re tired.

The store is like a painting

So cheap
So much to take in

Not to worry love of my life
We will be together soon
