ex-slave at 2am on a Wednesday

Saddle sores, liquor and whores

I wish I were a cowboy

the next best thing

is being me

no corpo gig, false face to present

Only words to write, guitar music to play

truth to live, no lies in my day

it’s good to be me, again I must say




To The Victor Go The Spoils!

Victor is a member of the disposed, once opulently well fed, royal family of Tuxsteininberg.

After his ousted, gilded family left his motherland,

leaving behind their silver serving dishes and baroque flatware,

penniless: he moved to America.

Today Victor dumpster dives for dinner.

He can’t get a green card.

Sustained by gluttonous consumer waste,

he’s never been better fed.

To Victor go the spoils.



All in Good Time

Fuck moderation: enjoy life rapaciously.

If you are making a bucket list, you aren’t really living.

Bucket lists are for those afraid of today.

The only thing left, for me to experience –is death.  Life’s last big adventure.

Bring it baby.

I only hope I have time to give her a wink and a crack on the ass before she puts me to bed. She’ll show up eventually, she’ll take me on a new ride; one with no ticket or list required,  guaranteed.


My Demented Mother

My mother took a hike, and ventured to another land, one exempt from time, where space continues to expand.

She now resides in limitless wonder, utopic at the least; an easier go I’m sure, without the earthly body she used to drag around.

“Happy Mother’s Day Mom!”

But I’m sure you’ve already heard, as you where there when I awoke this morning and uttered those same words: Happy Mother’s Day.



Portland, Oregon

The city of Portland, Oregon embodies the epitome of liberalism gone awry.

Need a police escort to march down I-5, closing all interstate traffic to automobiles, for the sole purpose of wanting to be heard, come to Portland.

Want free healthcare, food and counseling, allowing you to spend your panhandled riches on dope, come to Portland.

Hell, stick around long enough and Mayor Wheeler is likely to give you a free mini-house!

Come to Portland, where it pays to burden society.
