3ww-alliteration alley

Drat on the dum dum dreary day
discounted duties dragging on
does dilly dally drink me down

spread me around
like butter on burnt toast

Early easter eves eager
eyelight on everyone's eulogy
even I eked out entertainment

behind a movie theater
at 2 in the morning

Too too timidly touching
tasty tidbits of total tenderness
thunderroll taking tremendous toll

on you and me
and what I suppose to never be.

Keep on Truckin

Trying to move on
searching for something new
to do
just need to get through

Too damn old to be feeling
like this
little lost frosty cool
without much in my head

Waking up is hard to do

My fingers keep talking
lurching everyday

The littlegirlbirthday party
with too too many presents
not enough time
to make one mine
and find that one find
that I have been dreaming of

Married to a day to day
that needs to get away
It's damn near time for a divorce

The little girl will suffer the most.

3ww-Alex's night

Bwak bwak bwak
bicker backed sstrut around the room
pecking at the little things
he tells us all how we have failed
We see this fainting finger pointing
as its trajectory closes into the space behind my daughter

My daughter on the roof
crying over daddy do dahs
and daddy wah wahs
and her nervous looks down at me
on the concrete below

just wishing there was a way out
of this little luau of lackluster laments
burning holes in her self esteem
taking pills that don't make her better
he fires away
another round of babble
with shrapel of shit
and circumstance

So I hold her and tell her to breathe
this too shall pass
and when these boomers give us clean skies
we will bask in their sunshiney goodness.
