three dollars

we stumble drunk
out of the cricket lounge
dive bar strip club
our bellies full of whiskey
and over-priced beer
stumble run across baum boulevard
and get nearly hit by ghost-car headlights
tonight we don’t care
about girlfriends or ex-girlfriends
or the beautiful girls at work
who won’t date us won’t kiss us
won’t come near us
simply won’t

we race drunk up south millvale avenue
talking about the strippers
about the one who showed her cunt
to everyone in the bar
the one who kissed steve’s glasses last week
with her hot pink smear of lipstick
the one who took a liking to you that night

you shout woo-hoos
into the pittsburgh pink-black sky
while i shake
the sweat of this july night
it makes me feel so alive
to piss in lonely alleyways across from bum bars
where we’ll nightcap the night
as lonely madmen talk genius to themselves
as you tell anyone who will listen
look, man, i gave her three dollars
three dollars backed by the gold standard
man, she should’ve done a little bit more for me
then shake her wondrous ass
show her cunt
and say a placid thank you to my wallet bulge.


old poems

you writer
want my unsolicited
you should never
your old poems
when struggling to write the new
it’s like
an old lover
when fighting with the current one
thinking of
a smoking hot taco
while faced with a bowl of brown lettuce
it is
a dumb
made by a desperate fool
a time machine
to nowhere
the irretrievable past
staring back
at you
on the page
letting you know
how far the mighty have fallen
or that
you never
the talent
to begin with


sunday morning (7:45 a.m.)

this morning is ugly
but i needn’t tell you that

and the same dog is taking his same shit
right in front of my window

barking and growling at ghosts
while his owner has the same conversation on his phone
with the same person that he had it with last week

always something about kicking ass on saturday night

he’s wearing the same bar t-shirt and mesh shorts
dipshit sandals and shades that he always wears

flipping his keys like some kind of wise guy

giving me the same clueless douche bag look
when our eyes meet

in the sky the sun beams down
a pale yellow halo over this cracked landscape
of apartment complexes, embedded garbage and concrete

and the world looks like god’s vomit anew

as i watch the dog quiver his hind legs
and drop a massive steaming one

that his owner won’t pick up
like he didn’t do last week or the week before

thinking to myself you can’t spell suicide
without the U and I

before shutting the blinds that i’d only just opened
for whatever idiotic reason that i had

for wanting to let a little bit of light in
and look at the dull world around me.


dipshit poet

wasted an hour
on a poem
destined for the wastebasket
you look back
toward the bed
and think about
all the things
you could’ve done
if you’d have
just stayed
