O, just the random poetic ramblings of a mad man…
one drop, two drops still
ice on fire, eyes on fire
for all to see
I want your love
your sex- your best
I want a slice of your brain
on highways we run
naked- boobs floating
taking off into the night
Satellites plunge, into atmosphere, blinding eyes.
Veins, vessels, they pop; bodies bleed.
Metallic arms, calculate danger, dropping crates.
Earth to dropship, do not enter.
Airlock open, she kicked me out.
words, spill, spill forth
spit fire, spit saliva
crumpling paper into matter
feed our society rich
they’ll feed scraps in return
feed our society with love
maybe they’ll learn
jellyfish to control
do you copy? I repeat…
Part of me is, becoming alien.
Leaving behind, family, friends, goodbye Earth.
No love out here, in space.
No out, no in, only here.
No feminism, work together to survive.
the heat seeps
into the autumn of skin
burning, burning, we all fall down
abduct me please
bare, naked for stars to see
abduct me, you will be pleased
the smell of paint
drugging my pressure
I’m speaking to strange beings
Bitch please, do you speak English?
Voyager has landed, can we leave?
Rescue is still light years away.
Ejected pods, hurtling towards the Earth.
Break open, tentacles emerge, strangling innocents.
a little laughter
a little touch
sex, sex, smacking things
Devils in Suits
we sell our souls
prepare, to be disappointed
in symphony, we dance
bodies sliding- waltzing beneath sheets
on sweat and rabid moans
Foreign creatures, snatching bodies, living lies.
Logging my daily report, to robots.
Three years in space. Overgrown beard.
Missing bolts, damaged suits, waiting out.
Sun’s flare, burning holes in concrete.
she slams the door
in faces, in the hearts of people
single and happy, you think you are
stares, questions, leaving worlds-
across borders, into heavens
may I have your passport please?
work, until your last
work, until you tired and lost
Fortified skin, human nails breaking off.
Moving strange objects with my mind.
First we destroy, then we escape.
No regrets, darling. Initiating self-destruct sequence.
Floating in space, eating dark matter.
head under the water
holding breath- air, air, air
jellyfishes, tugging at my soul
in anger- I stomp, screams peaking
putting the non-living to shame
humans, fuck us all!
a place to sleep, please
knock, knock, fuck you, wake up, knock
eyes closed, grinding teeth
One fleeting moment, I felt alive.
Black surrounds us all, consuming light.
Thrusters at max, we lose control.
From sand, from hell, starships emerge.
First day in space. I crashed.
Jellyfish, would you die for me?
going supernova, yet you always here
Out of Luck
life is a crime, a police car chase
run, hide, run, shoot, breathe, run, run
a day of escaping the enforcers of death
a lobotomy for the world
gods in white coats confer at an orgy
about time, they did something about us
Space sex- Out of this world!
Aliens are friends; show them love.
Broken. Beaten. Warped. I feel old.
Trump has won. Bye-bye Mother Earth.
We, are trash in space. Hooah!
Michael Jordan, 2.30 meters tall and naked
running on air, his teeth pearl white
cameras flashing, trying to keep up with history
grabbing pussies, grabbing cocks
voting boxes filled with hate
choose none, hear the people’s say
Look Me in the Eyes
have some booze, maybe a teat
suckle for pleasure, suckle dear mammal
boobs confused with faces; don’t stare
Do you dream of numbers? Aye.
Empty spaces for all, come share.
Fix the reactor! Eject it quick!
Space cows stealing our show. Lack of oxygen.
I’m sorry. For blowing up this planet…
finger in the cosmos
black and white, I mix
the milky ways, swirling destinies
Somewhere In There
he sits there, smiling
making love to his cellphone
human emotions emerging-
for just one moment…
fuck the numbers
hand in hand, I would marry life
lose your virginity, it’s perfectly fine
Dream on, dream on. Set your soul free.
Initials on space rock. I’m famous!
Pricking fingers. We sip wine with blood.
Spacesuit tight. I slap your butt.
Close to the Sun. We sweat in kisses.
faces in the rushing wind
voices in the wild rain
slip, slip, we all fall down
pay to be published
go on, pay up! Pockets bleed
to see words on paper
I would like to say a few words
this world is painful, maybe mad
Captain. We have a situation. No food.
I found the black hole. We’re in it.
Stop, drop, roll. How do you put out a nuclear fire?
Her love is alien. Her love is abductive.
Before you soul-search, you should die.
This Was Coming
is a crime, a sinful product
the adultery of gods
shoot. Reload. Shoot…
bullets run out, breath runs dry
masturbating on lies
they came, they preached
they fucking left us to die
From up here, the world seems fucking fine.
Wait till we get closer. I mean real close.
Now we seeing it. I take back my words.
Oh hell. I see red, white and lots of Facebook regrets.
Mayday! Mayday! Abort landing!
honey spilled from the cock
she made it spasm, rock and roll
our pets tilted heads at our moans
I took her hand in mine
from a sculpted cliff, we jumped
sing me a song please
one of buttered farted tunes
sing me to sleep please
Cull the banks, stash our money in gunny sacks!
Thunder thighs become space-thin. O, come back please.
Give me a camera; let me shoot you down.
Remember space is void. So no sorrows, only smiles.
Jellyfishes in space. Would you prefer man-eating-mind-warping aliens?
I wrote my first eulogy.
many have past, I’m a little late
my plus points are never argued.
I manipulate and steal
for the good of the world
through lens I watch.
the world turn mad
and streets swallow the living ghosts
I hate it when you whine and cry. No one hears you!
This deep in space. The jellyfishes are waltzing to your heartbeat.
I’m glad, I’m not alone. You, me, we and radio static…
Bragging rights- The first human to be lost in infinity.
You see, you are no more. Your food, your clothes. All mine.
when they talk too much-
you put jellyfish in their mouth
make them choke on death
LOVE is great!
said everyone who ever did
well fuck yall!
I was given a simple task in life-
and guess what? I did!
