life surfing channel

three word wednesday: joke, leverage, remedy

deciding to depart
i left the counterfeit comfort
filled with fierce fire flames
taking myself and fevered soul

conflict to remedy
the quiet stall of gentle falling rain
cools the connection to this crazy constant
steam cloud surround my sweet illusive flight

going nowhere another cigarette
the aching itch digs deep during
the blink of lights on lights off
ticking time the leverage of this life

changing the channel
johnny carson’s midnight monologue
a joke with no laughter
mute plays best

**i always gotta kick outta the boss’s 57 channels and nothin on….

we decided to start all over. from the beginning. and now there’s all sorts of dirty laundry piled high in our closet. his and mine. i only do laundry when there’s a slow movie with a hundred commercials. tho’ there’s not a tv in the house, no electricity. we lounge around in each other’s minds playing games we’re both familiar with. sometimes i watch out of spite not giving a inch. he manages a smile coming from day one starting the love cycle all over again.
