“eyes open slowly” 


blow smoke at the moon,  

hammer the sun in the sky,  

to live is to die  



a line, (a short blue one)



“prayer for brokenhearted misanthropes” 


when you stare into  

the sun long enough you  

become invincible   




a line, (a short blue one)



“broken shadow” 


lost wandering confused streets—  

the sun forgot to  

shine on me today  




a line, (a short blue one)



“the haunting truth” 


when life is good, i think:  

i will die someday  

and i am afraid  




a line, (a short blue one)



“happy birthday” 


with each passing year  

we grow ugly and bitter  

waiting for the end  



a line, (a blue one)
