First published in March 2017 as a status update, I decided to use the image for something else.

One Night at Hula’s

you swirled in
as a flame
all-consuming;

nothing was
left after
you passed.

You touched
me and I was
ash.

The Devil on the Headboard

The Devil on the headboard
he sways and strokes his
beard;

He says his girlfriend jacks off
with the faucet in the bathtub

He says she let’s him watch ‘
cause she loves him.

Now he says prey:

“Don’t make it too hard, OK?”

Since nothin’ says lovin’ like
somethin’ in my oven

he makes a mess o’ Bisquicks

as a feather drifts into my
ear and whispers about rock
stars
and world politics.
