Likes and superlikes

I want to steal your car
you drive like a pussy
It looks so pretty and rapid
I’ll give it a like.

You found a quote
That you think is profound,
Did you give it many seconds
Of your precious time?

Your baby looks odd,
Is that what it’s meant
To look like? Sorry to vent,
Still I’ll give it a like.

All her photos look edited,
Can see through the filter,
An app rebuilt her face
Still superlike just in case.

Fuck the likes and superlikes
Unless you see something make
Me smile in person
You’ll never know what
I really do like.

Juicy round melons

Love a good melon
Colour don’t matter
Bigger the fruit
The more bites
I can take.
It wants me
To delve deep
Open jaw wide
Stuff myself
Til cheeks bulge.
Can’t be bitter
That’s not fun,
Must be ripe,
Round and soft.
To arouse my
Appetite.

Edges

The edges of my being
Are a funny shape
Like the boundaries
Between countries
That are not straight
Gun-man patrolling
Barbed-wire fences
Affecting the limits
Of my internal extremes

Zealous hungers
Push harder
Need more
Fucked logic
Give secretly
Love openly
Fear less
Stray polymath
Thinking different

Postpartum Psychosis

Supposed to be a lovely time
Two people created another life
Same way that they made me
One more child took something
Out of her, effort took a toll,
A toll that cost mother her life.

The total cost still being added
Like a very big shopping trip
That will last generations
Her goodness is in me
And her blues is in me too
Oh well, what can you do..

It might’ve been

We might’ve been
Something big
I might’ve been
What you needed
You might’ve been
Someone that helped

We should have
Both tried harder
I should have
Understood my flaws
You should have
Had more patience

Now I know
The foundations
Of my choices,
The wiring
Behind the box,
And I only wish
I first met you
today

Observations before action

The fool will continue
To be foolish.
Other eyes will see,
The idiot offending.
The limit will be reached,
When you’ve seen enough.
His actions were key
To you creating a lock.
You make him stop,
With the arm behind the back.
Now the fool must leave
And think of his foolishness.

Two kinds

Two kinds of people,
To take photos or not.
Does your brain work?
Or do you need to take a pic?
Quick snap to remember
The memory that your
Mind can’t be bothered
To hold dearly.

You won’t forgot your birthday,
Yet the date of this occasion,
Will be lost property,
An orphaned moment,
Unless you take that snap,
With your fake beaming smile,
Just stop taking pics
For at least a little while.
