Reading Toni Morrison again
Ugly acts wrapped in beautiful words
Innocent souls trapped in dirty worlds

Some think Beloved is her ghost story
But to all black people
Slavery is their ghost story

Black woman with blue eyes
Black woman with dead child
Black men emasculated by white

This is no Colour Purple
This is no happy ending
This is the unending horror

Thank you Toni Morrison
For showing the ugly truth
And making beauty from it

Life is beautiful

Like a retard singing in the subway
Like a chemical fire nightsky
Like a needleless day after chemo
Like an eggshell sucked dry by a rat

Life is beautiful
Never forget that

My morning breath
First gasp of morning
Fresh as a sewer
Like living death
Comes with a warning
Your kisses to skewer

Christmas Morn

Awake early christmas morning
To buy flowers for a child never born
Sunny and cold as I drive
At home my heart, my wife
By the lake in this far land
Flowers for two in Japan
