POINTLESS
(7/31/14)


it's
amusing
at times

these simple
little
two dimensional
black and white
descriptions
of the multifaceted

multihued

mulitfucked
complexity
of living

they
take my mind
off of the true
atrocities
of actual
failure and death

these
scribblings
solve nothing

for me

for you

still
I feel compelled
to put something
down
in reflex
to all of this
twisted
sensory input

there's
no one
to tell
of my torment

bartenders
prostitutes
and psychiatrists
are in
my past

they listened
because
I paid them

nobody
has ever
put up
with this shit
for free

so
these blank
pages
seem my only
outlet

I post
them
just in case
someone
from my home
planet
might pluck
them out
of the electronic
ether

recognize
them
as their
own

and come
to find me

come
to take me
home
