Show Poem: Death by couch… June 22 / Lansing, MI / GTG House #SchwervonPoetry


Death by couch
Bathtub marmalade
Dough eyed morning after pill
The coffe guy is very talkative today

Zucchini bread circus
I have always found comfort
Amongst those playing a role

The cool new thing to do
Taking thunder from a baby
Stripping for the nerds
High definition humping
On a bed of fresh greens

Tornado alley
Exploding produce
Rice pudding and face soap

It’s the Hungar
That makes the snake
Taste so good.

Mud helps the orgasam
No one understands the blood
National guard
Exta cash on the weekends

I never even notice the flag.
Perhaps it’s time to take it down.

Show Poem: Death by more for less… June 12 / Chicago, IL / Auxiliary Arts Center #SchwervonPoetry

Death by more for less

The shortcomings of self regulation
The saga of self motivation

Free shipping with purchases
Over 2.5 billion dollars or more

Feeding time
You don’t have to go hungry
But you can’t eat here

When love mapping
Beware of buried
Power lines

With all the praise required
God is surely the neediest
Of all beings

I escape the bluebird
With an active mind

Reading into things
Before understanding

The pages of a book
Lapping like waves
On the side of a
Mossy dock

Hill top
Green highways
Black bean burgers
With the ghost of Mark Twain

Lost glasses
In molasses

Eyelids stuck shut
Fields of fuel

Wishing did not feel so
All alone
Learning to eat chicken
On the bone

Sleep is not death

Traps covered
Sleep is not death

The post office at The Front
Loading the customizer

Nuts and bolts
Cover the pavement

The snow keeps things warm
The middle is never defined.

A heart that pumps
squeeze cheese

The golden balls drop
We only steal what we deserve

A splinter, tooth pick
Drum stick

The contents of
A new taco

Street lamp
On a timer

A string and return
to the city
Your street
Your sidewalk

To shine all over again
