SETTLEINGS (BAD & BETTER) ….(just fun & I guess just fine from 2009)

June 21, 2012



Eyes out to recognize passion:

It’s flatbacked against a dark wall

in the basement, burrowing deeper into sad shadow.

I’d bet it’s hiding some, a child’s cruel game.

When people see they’re empty

They write in to newspapers & ask real advice,

exposing & espousing about

“spicing up”  their  lovelives.

Girls & boys buying new nightclothes,

sex-scents, and other eaus,

bought to butter up their battered beaus,

enhancing  romance drugs

from teevee, junk mail,

and toys that are tools

for fixing whats failed.

There’s always  something new,

someone new/ anything new.

Venture steps forward

away from the old?

Nature’s warmblooded creatures

home in on  settleings less cold.

  1. I think I have been cursed and cured by the entire list of side effects. Thank you for posting to show that what I thought was the highbeams of insanity is really just glare of life itself.
