Day: December 29, 2014


You tried on gloves, stockings, heels

Suits, dresses, and rings

Just to pass the time

Only for our amusement

You stopped and looked in the mirror

You asked me if you looked pretty

That’s where things went terribly wrong

Machine Of No Thoughts

Some days I sit in front of this machine

I wait for a miracle

I wait for the writing to start

Sometimes nothing comes

And I’m left sitting here

With what I imagine to be a dumb look on my face

These aren’t the good times

In fact, these can be some of the worst

Board, dumb-looking, without a thought to write

I think I’ll fix a drink

I hope these times are short
