Yelp Review

Last time I went out for a meal  
It cost more than the tab  
Diarrhea on the docket
And skid marks in the cab  
I was up all night hunched over  
Heaving out all that was left  
What a way to spend an evening
My compliments to the chef  

Cold sweats inside my bedroom †
And fevered toilet dreams †
I never should have followed fish  
With chocolate chip ice cream †
An entire pint of bourbon †
Was a mistake I must confess  
Lord, just get me to tomorrow  
My compliments to the chef  

Twitching at the shadows  
Just canít keep anything down  
The last 24 hours lost  
In a haze of green and brown †
Iím watching Dawsonís Creek reruns †
Bedridden and depressed  
Wonít somebody come and shoot me  
My compliments to the chef  

The ceiling changes color  
Just like my white dress pants  
Iíd do it all so differently †
If given half a chance †
The way that Iíve been shitting  
Thereís no point in getting dressed  
Gonna sleep in this here shower  
My compliments to the chef  

Send a priest or send a rabbi  
If they can stand the smell  
Help me get to heaven †
And escape this waking hell  
My intestines want to kill me  
All my innards are distressed †
Iím praying for a quick death  
My compliments to the chef

Into the Deep

Drown me in the river, watch me as I sink. Tied together by a dark malevolent spiritual being, descending Into the depths.  
The farther I float, the more my mind clouds. Memories flood, they pull me close. The surface of this water, I cannot break through.  
It's crowded by the roots of the hollowing tree that looms overhead devouring any light shed by the sun. I touch the bordering line, my skin becomes numb, the lack of the of the touch of the ones that I love. It keeps me secluded and wretches the promise that I'll overcome.
All I feel, the water grows cold.
The pressure breaks my fingers into my hand, in through my arm and down through my spine. My body is aching, surely losing time.  
My heartbeats and breaths are slowing and straining. The cavity of my chest now filing with blood, leaking out of my mouth and trailing behind my corpse.  
Death is my carriage but I am it's horse

A Smile in the Mirror

If I stare in the double mirror long enough,
Thereís an anomaly in the limitless reflections,
And upon closer inspection into infinity,
One of me has a different inflectionÖ

What lies behind these eyes is more than just perception,
A vision of what was and what will be of my own conception,
The image in front of me is just a representation of my mind,
But the figure is without shape or form and somehow confined.

Underneath it all is what I call the other worldly spirit,
Talking to me in dreams when Iím careful enough to hear it,
Every once in a while it comes to me in a smile in the mirror,
Frighteningly obscure when the appearance comes nearer.

I donít fear it, regardless of size or darkness when I see it,
The soul leaves this body only when death can free it,
But the imagination runs wild with a convulsive twitch,
When from time to time the eye captures a concrete glitch,
