Poison Blood

We told ourselves that it was love
For we needed motivation to live
But you can’t run forever once you’ve kicked the hive
And if you squeeze too hard on what you have
What drips out is always hate

Facelift

I know it’s cloudy, but let’s see a smile
It’s raining–but there’s no lightning to smite
So wash away your face of spite
Use drizzle from the cloud that spits
To drip away your sooty spots:
“Practice all your freethrow shots”…
“And rehearse twice for all your shows”…
—-“Diet consists of puppy chows”…
——“And boiled, baked, or broiled crows”…
So press on and receive your crown
Upside turn on down that frown
