"Travel East"

To where they shred you like a sawmill

Suicidal fortress, forests and forces

Where you can walk into the loving arms

of the death snake

Falling away

Forgetting the pain 

"Rollercoasters Alone"

You could ride them forever

Ups and downs


Quick highs and lows

On repeats

Or you could share them;

Build a life


Diligent, kind, and strong

Because life is not a stack 

of unread eBay comics

DVDs by Kamal in cellophane

Flatscreens in garages

Although it can be all of these things

It is necessary to take a new step

Find love and stability

Flex your muscles

Pray a bit

Cleanse yourself from pass sins

Redemptive, apologetic poems

All I ever prayed for, really


ever noticed that when people say

“I won't bore you with the details”

they then proceed

to bore you with the details?
