remember II

porch 4
ig: @snapshotsteve

remember the time i was all fucked up,
mild manorexia,
“my life’s so tough.”
ate 3 lollipops, for breakfast and lunch
every day,
there were holes in my
teeth by the end of the month.

and cold water reminds me
as it shifts against my cavities,
and shocks my nervous system,
shoulda listened to my wisdom
teeth. and made a good decision,

like breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
like i can’t get much thinner.
fittin’ into my
old shirts and jeans,

feelin’ like a fucking gremlin.
need to take much better
care of me.

every hole in my teeth
has a story to tell
and i’ll tell ’em
’til they all fall out.

remember I

peom 1

remember the nights
we used to fight?
now things are so bright
it burns my eyes
we’ve burned alive
now say good night
i think i’m ready for some moonlight

i got a jacket with the patches
i bought on the same day
and a table full of stickers
i bought at the same place

the person that i made
like ebony to gray
was made in just a day
it’s just a shade of gray

the people that i met
never lost or gained respect
for the person that they met
what you see is what i let

there are insects in my clothes
chew from cloth to skin to bones
soon i’ll see myself exposed
head, shoulders, knees and toes
knees and toes
knees and toes
soon i’ll see myself exposed
just a boy wearing rose colored glasses
