(untitled), 12Feb03

there's a crisis in my heart
the fool has died
the fool in love
my village needs a new idiot
clowns to the left of me
jokers to the right
here i am
stuck in the middle
without you
a sad pathetic ego-deflated boy
a rusty nail in a sea of salty dogs
and cosmopolitain bliss
in need of more change
than any one can can spare

there's a crisis in my heart
i need a new drug
i'm strung out on love
jonesing for a fix
a junkie that can't kick

lovers turn to cocktails turn to poems
turn to sad meaningless musings
a sleep to dream
a shivering sweat in the silence of the night
with no end

(untitled), 26Sept01

i scream in silence
drowning in anguish and angst
shadowed by broken dreams
my heart still and bleeding
cries go unheard into the night
paper dolls lay crumpled
a wastebasket filled to the brim
so many possibilities
so many possible me's
nowhere to run but in
nowhere to hide but out
nothing is easy or free
but what have i got left to lose?
is any of it worth a shit anyway?
oldest ancient materialism
what price would you pay
for happiness...

ok, well, i'm up to date and have started typing up my post-separation material...

monkey brains revisited 19Sept01

i sat in a cafe all day
drinking peppermint tea
wishing it was absinthe
wishing it was 19th century gay Paris
wishing for a new dream
wishing to be free

i sat at the lovers' table
just me and my pen
and a monkey on my back
pulling at the hairs on my neck
sticking its fingers in my ears
down my throat
biting my lips 'til they bled
sucking the red elixer
its stinking breath
fetid in my nose
burning my swollen eyes
filling my mind with mad laughter

i pick dead lumps of skin
from the monkey's matted hair
they taste like rotten eggs
sulferic, they burn screaming down my throat
sit smoldering in my gut
like red hot coals
or sun baked stones
petrified desert rocks
multi-colored
sharp-edged
piercing, cutting through my insides
squeezing out through old scars
i pick them out and flick them
they leave tracers in the air
hit the wall like soft lumps of butter
or brains

all the while
laughing
laughter that sounds like
a million dying children
each one, a dream
now shattered, silent screaming...

The last line, which was cut out, from The Wizard of Oz:

Oh shit Toto, we're back in Kansas.

Will work for absinthe.

i was being sarcastic... but hey now that its here, lemme at it!
go poetic cliche go!

Tables Turned

feeling her wash over me
like melancholy blue water
holding me down
the last bubbles of my second wind
drift up and away
leaving me down here to drown

feeling her crash
like a high speed car wreck
keeping me trapped
in a cage of hot twisted metal
gasp and scream
leaving me here to burn

drowning and burning
sadness and anger
two sides of the same fucking coin
seared lungs all round
except for her, that bitch,
smiling as she's holding me down

now I'm watching her run
like a scared white rabbit
glancing at me in fear, over her shoulder
but I'm catching up on me fast
this time she's gioing to pay the piper
and I'll be the one to walk away whole
- R. Althea Metz


Siren Song

Sadness with her siren song,
begging me to sing along;
I dash my ship against the rocks,
this rotting flesh, this human box;

Such pretty songs ring in my ears
Soothing whispers still my fears;
Chose to believe alluring lies
Solemnly I close my eyes;

Pockets filled to weigh me down
One last breath before I drown;
All the things I left unsaid
repeat themselves inside my head;

Swallowed up by water cold,
and terror finally takes its hold;
Struggle but it's too late now
Giving up I take my bow;

Here I lie, no more to wake,
at the bottom of the lake.
- R. Althea Metz

Sweet Dreams

Sinking into sleep
afraid of what I'll find
or better said,
what will find me?

Showcase bellies
made of glass so I can see
the blue babies floating
with corks in their mouths,
mocking me with their hands
balled into tiny lifeless fists.

Soundless screams
of hairless naked white hot
irradiated women in pain,
with eyes sewn shut
reaching for mercy.

Blood on the banister -
a basement full of death waiting,
bodies lay crumpled
sticking out at wrong angles
at the foot of the stairs;
Let the hunt begin.
- R. Althea Metz

Goodnight

I think I'll have another drink
and slip into sleepy shadow
and pray to dream a dreamless sleep
where there's no more need to weep

Sweet heavy blankets of silent darkness
longing to sink into novocaine half-wit joy
wrapped in layers of mute delight
I want this chance to say goodnight

To just close my eyes
and watch the world change to black oblivion
unaware I've come undone,
that I'm setting with the sun

I'm going to go where night never ends
and where thoughts stop dead in their dying tracks
where ignorance is bubbling bliss
so give me one more goodnight kiss

This must be alright
yeah, I must be ok
just turn out the light
and let me fade away

well it's a couple days late on cue, but here ya go althea hehe...

i'll kick it off with one a bit on the extreme side... rain is falling, listening to christian death remix album, this just seemed to fit...

daddy dearest 05May94

a woman admires the small-hole scars bruising the pit of her elbow
male accompanist strokes her gentle braided
i wonder what ever happened to my father
stroke stroke stroke
circling the small purpling poc-marked skin
spinning room brings up the topic of lunch to the cold concrete floor
i shouldn't have eaten
shit! i gotta get out of here!
hey Johnny, where's the fucking shot?
gulp, do some blow
he moans as she sucks him wishful it was blood and not cum
i wish he was fuckin dead!
daddy, don't spank me daddy...
she whines
he comes on her face
"you fuckin asshole!" she screams
jabs discarded hypodermic into his left leg
"BITCH!"
he slaps her to the ground
"daddy, don't spank me daddy..."
where did you go to father?
where did you go when mommy was crying in the corner?
he throws her to the bed
she lets him
daddy, what did you do to make mommy cry?
