Ex-summers


Sofa, carpet, bed-
bleached and funky and colder
from my wet swimsuit.

It's Never Too Late


Angelic voices
from the busts of perfection.
Never outdated.

Animals


Yelling at their own,
on the grounds of "ignorance,"
ashamed of their form.


Veganarchists

The sole difference?
There's no reason to hate cows,
because they eat grass.


Precedence

Think of what fervor
they would employ to picket
carnivore caf├ęs!

Confide


These young men take "the
shrillest highs and lowest lows"
to "such great [new] heights."

Who's Walking Who?


Is there an instance
where our intentions become
what we think we are?

E-emotion

Things were going well,
and then you got an email
with a big fat :)

"Sweat"


And when you say "sweat"
you mean sink faucet-esque pores?
'cause that's what I mean.

side note: good news

The Recession


Popularity
of tight pants increases, while
thieves look for purses.

Some Days

On the grey, wet days,
the elevator's broken,
and the subway's late.


Some Days (con't)

But rain poured that day
you resisted sleep and found
mutuality.

Love/Hate relationship

New York is a dream:
my mind is up as I sleep.
but not wandering.

The New New York

Both the "work Colin"
and "work is over Colin"
just moved to New York.

Mobile Home

So I close my eyes—
and what appears before me
I wouldn't call "dark".

New Yolk

On the contrary,
the deep green yolk belongs to
the world's freshest egg.

It Can't Be

There is no such thing,
as far as I am concerned,
as a lil' smokey.

Amateur Photography


"Okay girls," she says
as she turns her camera,
"make a sexy face."

Beards


The newest muscle
not only impresses girls,
but hides your acne.


Williamsburg Woods

In a plaid forest
is the only place you'll find
skinny lumberjacks.

It's True

We've added the "o"
so that little asterisk?
it can kiss my butt.

Most People's Definition of "Sharing Music"


Magical subways:
here even earbuds blossom
into loud flowers.

Obama

Easier for us,
but he's made life harder for
the punks and rappers.

Postmortem Success Stories


We should envy pigs:
even after slaughter, they're
multi-talented.

This Could Happen To Anybody


Sitting in the park,
I turn, inquisitively.
Their dog's named Colin?!?

Starving

I'm getting cranky.
The proverbial chili's
ready to seat us.
