No one’s dying anytime soon

Footsteps, misteps, falling


I seek shelter from gospel


The politics of truth

gang up on me,

they’re not my truths

not my policies.

Bullets stray, voices are raised

guilty parties whose names

are named.

You speak of mortality, joy and I listen.

Yet, I’m afraid.

Extreme group therapy
extreme debriefing
extreme public confessions
have an extreme taste with your Diet Pepsi

Extreme intoxications
Where are your extremely
cherished daughters?
Extreme moment of enlightment
Peformances nothing less than
extreme, alcoholic-like.
Homophobic extreme church goers
I had a dream, and Extreme
-the band- was playing
Moby was also there, rockin’
famous Extreme Ways.

My new relationship can only
be described as “extreme”
We’re going as fast as we can,
as rookies in the
extreme game of love.

Those late nights of extreme
are over
I got nothing but a most
humble approach for my sweet,
extreme girl.

The extremeness of life
has showed me a thing or two.
