Loaf of Bread
(a poem)

Sliced bread ain’t that great
Certainly not the best thing I ever ate
Please allow me to elucidate
I know somethin’ better!

When she walks in the room I turn to butter
Better than just about anything ever
No loaf of bread could come near looking better
Especially when she’s in her white sweater

So she’s out in the sun and she’s perfectly toasted
And if I had some jelly and some coffee I roasted
We could clean up the cupboards and toss out the rotted
And we could run on the beach ’till we’re totally wasted Continue reading “Loaf of Bread”

We Got Your Back (A Poem For 2021)

A Poem Banner

We Got Your Back

The capitol’s surrounded by eight foot fences
But nobody’s sure what they’re defendin’
My mama taught me to double check my sources
I got all day and I’m gonna dance on the tension

This world’s spinning in a field of black holes
Up high in the mountains it’s as perfect as gold
The view on my horse and that settin’ sun
My freedom’s the glimmer off the side of my gun

We love you nature, yea, we got your back
All them fossil fuels coming out our smokestacks
Some people say we’re gonna stop spinnin’ soon!
I got all day and I’m just gonna try and be cool Continue reading “We Got Your Back (A Poem For 2021)”

I’m White! (a poem)

just words

A Lovely Poem
about being who I am

This won’t take too long!

White, heterosexual, Catholic and skinny!

It’s an ongoing project!

I’m white.
Stop telling me that’s bad.

I’m heterosexual.
Stop telling me I have a choice!

I’m Catholic.
Stop telling me lies about my own faith!

I’m skinny.
I eat anything I want.

So there.
