I like waking up with you
And when I mean You
I’m mean you and you and You

I can’t always find you
In the leaves and trees
In the vast green spaces
In the buckets of rain water
That spill over the gutters
During a prodigious storm
But I always like waking up with you

The mosquitos like to terrorize
They make playgrounds
Of our sleeping ears

The shellfish image burns hot
It wants blood and scars
Scars are no boundaries for dancers
Bones and skin are just props
Every breath is a dance

My dirty tshirt makes me move
I am not an imperfect God
I am a perfect gummy bear
I am the God of Gummy Bear
A pinch pot made of tootsie rolls
An iron horse of feel good summer movies
Let’s feel the good summer movies

Saturday, September 23 /Lawrence, KS @ Replay Lounge 10pm w/ Emaline Twist + The Sluts

Show Poem: September 17, 2017 Murray, KY @ Terrapin Station #poetry 

Red riding lawn mowers
Sirloin stockade prison break
Marshall tucker flute solo
Chinese Korean Thai Sushi Roll
Hot pink mossy oak
Drunken noodle support group

We are all here for each other
Sometimes we hold things
Sometimes we hold each other
These are the best times

I know the world is not against me
But today, it’s really pissing me off

Clouds hold their positions
Like petrified explosions

You were my hero this morning
I fought you every step of the way
Sometimes I have to fall
To see you grow
Your mercy is the trees
Along the highway
My lesson is the love that happens
In the quite pauses
