Another old one. You’re going to see a lot of stuff off the back wall for a while. All I can say for certain about most of these is that they were written prior to 2008.  Some are probably as old as 1994, but the majority probably fall from 1998 to 2006. I can’t pin them down more than that, but as my briefly-lived poetry book (which I have no intention of re-releasing) was brought into existence in 2008, anything I found in it has to be older than that.

The Marrying Kind

I traced the lies on your lips while you were sleeping.
I guess it’s true: the honeymoon is over.
Now all I’ve got to keep me company is
Daytime television and a worn-out VCR.

Amazing, isn’t it?
How much better dreams are 
When you’re still dreaming them.
