Life Is Just Waiting For Death

Poem By Kyle Delaney

I hear the tinkle of an empty can
Play by the garage grounds
The flutter of a pigeon
Makes an irritable sound
On top of our air-conditioner
Stepping outside the balcony
Air flew right into my eyes
I winced for a bit
Until tears wet my left cheek
Having to rush inside
And cursing under my breath

I've nothing intelligent to say
Except that my mind is adrift
On the excitement of
Meshing mayonnaise and ketchup
To smother cold corn in
It will give me body gas for sure
But look at the amount of fs I give,
There's a bloody sandstorm
While I'm locked indoors,
While I'm still the awkward bun,
Might as well be entertaining at it

Am I Gone

the air has taken shape
of a monster, a beast
that I can’t fend off
it tugs at my heart


You watched me
Float above your bed
I count
The breaths I take

What Do You See?

you see a subtle woman
clothed in her luscious black hair
but you’ve turned her into a child
each time you left that door

Seven Stars

Elegant as a floating cloud
Her breath tastes of sugar
Her eyes have stolen the stars
Porcelain skin that burns

Unrequited And Wine

imperfect grapes, or even berries
were drowned into this bottle
but care not for its origin, its maker;
instead bask in its service, its offering

Our Dreams Were Suspended

Our dreams were suspended
Like little stars on a baby's mobile
The clouds clothed us unrequitedly
Even if we ran away to the seas
