Sometimes our name
Comes from
Where we are born
A berry of the earth

Sometimes our name
Comes from
The tools we use to survive
A berry of the sraw

Sometimes we do no know
The story of our name
And sometimes we
We choose to forget

There is so much earth
And only a small part is human

We are sending waves of energy
All the time
Even on the couch
Even when we sleep
Sometimes we work harder
In our sleep

We go to the apothecary
To feel better
We work from the inside
With the chemicals
Of our own bodies

Stammering for a foothold…Friday / November 7, 2014 #SchwervonPoetry

What would you do
If you were stuck
Staring at the ass
of a truck All day?

Snot factory
Don’t forget
Life is filled with wonder and joy

Jerking off is only
Toxic when it’s in public

You told me if I drank this
I would remember my dreams
But you lied.

Stammering for a foothold

The world rewards those
who enter it

We are cars on the highway

All I ever wanted was
The best of both worlds

Twenty five years is a long time
For the reincarnation cycle of a fly

The problem with an open door
Is that you don’t get to pick
Your visitors

Twenty five years is
barely
Enough time
For a single breath to exhale

Everywhere you look
You can choose to see teeth
If that is what you need

I am okay with that

There are teeth in
In the wheels
There are teeth
In smiles.
