No Critical Understanding.

Poem By Mary X

did.
did.
the words.

the kids of the street
or the street of the kids
go into an enternal
spiral.
they bounce of one another
and need each other to survive a
brief life

of drunk antics and drug-filled
crimes.
even though I speak
on behalf,
they still try
to take

my money.

Comments about No Critical Understanding.

This is outstanding. How the hell do you write so much, so well in such a short time-span. A beautiful flow from the opening to closing. The narrative is sharp and bounces around so well, yet the reader remains attentative (there is a typo in 'Bounces of')

Bipolar Barbie.

There was this
Barbie-doll girl I knew
who grew
into a Barbie-doll woman.

Muslim Woman.

I open up my book of thoughts
And memories, and get struck
With a whispery clatter of voices and a blowing force:

Dipsy Blonde With Glasses.

The dipsy blonde with glasses
Is bending over again,

Trying to re-arrange her

Father I Am.

Drink up.

List This!

Everyone always admits to loving
what is bad
for them.
