Something clicked sometime last week; in between our usual midweek lunch banter or perhaps at Niner with Lau and Emz when I had that cough syrup of a drink, or somewhere during my four-block walk to Fully Booked picking up the art of tidying up or maybe over those two Maricel bottles Friday with My […]

So…now it’s seemingly like things are in place, and there’s this overall rhythm to my day-to-day: wake up; get coffee; find something to wear on these I-can’t-even-it’s-so-effin’-hot days; check blog stats and oh look someone dropped by yet again; travel to work; grab lunch; earphones on for an afternoon of my Jump Baby Jump playlist; […]

Deciphering You

Let me fall on my knees, and beg of you: disturb me by whichever way you like. Intimidate me, or hurt me, I don’t really mind. Nuzzle me, or pull my hair, for as long as you please. Kiss me, break my bones, or just be a tease. For if that’s what you can give, […]

A piece for us that which we cannot name Should this be The End lemme ask again again again Are we a ‘hey there’ once plump with emotions a spring of wants now spilt into oceans Are we borrowed hallowed unarmed for tomorrow Was I a lazy drawl with my lingering s’s a she who […]

Drunken Files

Alas, no tale is there to tell Mad’moiselle bows down, farewell Beers all spent in some cheap motel And that which was once a case Of the ensnared entangled enchanted Is now adieu mo’sieur Sorta kinda relieved we parted Alas, mister kiss-yer-sorry-ass Oh please don’tcha ever ask Another one for the road, we must Coz […]
