do you have any idea
whatís going through my mind
the traffic trying to squeeze
in between the broken lines


tap tap tap


interruptions approaching intersections
my impatient imbalance
unwinding thoughts with no direction
no filter
no motive
no fear
alarms squealing from my G.P.S.
compounding the situation
with well-worn warnings


the erratic old tic is wearing me down
sending signals in morse code
with her eyes blink-blinking

goddam-it
get off the road
you crazy old bitch


cars are everywhere
and everybodyís in a hurry
to slow down for the gorgeous blonde in lycra
jogging on the sidewalk
stunning with her silver headphones
oblivious to the mess
her ass has man-infested
copulation in-car-cerated
the carnage careering down the road


and in the back of my mind
my subconscious is writing ballads
for a brunette with wet hair
denying that her smile did anything remotely
to trigger an avalanche in my empty heart


deny deny denying


that I could fall in love again
that I didnít want the day to end
swimming in our adrenaline
catching wave after wave
in wanting need
for her liquid tension to wet my lips
and to feel
the thrill of falling free
completely airborne and out of control


tap tap tap


when she asked me
how much I weighed
then she blushed
at the thought of my muscles grinding
tucking her into bed


tuck tuck tuck


when she said
I looked like a family man
and I told her
I have a daughter
then I walked away on the wave of the day


now desperate to find her
so I can ask her name
before I forget her sweet face
before she passes me
like a stranger
lost in the streets of China town
running from love in a reoccurring dream


tap tap tap


on an empty bottle
stone fucking sober
remembering the drunken days of poetry
knowing the voices never hit this hard
without swinging from the booze
and here I am
swinging punches at thin air





This poem was inspired by my own comp called "TOURETTE'S POETRY"... unfortunately I was disqualified.
