Enslaved to the SystemPage 3 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
blonde b almost paid off
no jail for me this month...

how strange it is
to have to hit up two different men
for cash
cuz the bank account crashed
over a month ago
and the man I've been screwing for a year
said it's a sin
to spend
the green stuff
on green stuff
so I assume overdrawn bank accounts and restitution and presents for the kids
and all that stuff a person has to have
to get by
in life

tacos tonight
hamburgers tomorrow
and I breath a sigh of relief
accompanied by such sorrow

it's a shame to have to hit up
random men

but I thank the Good Lord
for allowing me
to sin.

sometimes if I squeeze my eyes tight
I can see the hands of the ones I love
steadily snapping and laughing
and gossiping
and talking
about things
what would they say to one another??
what won't two old women say when sitting in front of several bushels
some ancient rhythm passed down through blood
too dark to be white
but no one would claim any different
and I'd listen to those two old women
gossiping about people long gone
the day the mule got stuck in the mud
or how much they loved their grandbabies

sometimes if I squeeze my eyes real tight
I can hear my loved ones laughing
Granny and Opal
sitting around breaking up beans
and I know everything's going to be okay
then reality hits
and I realize I'm just a nit wit
sitting alone on the porch
breaking up the last mess of the season
reminiscing on things
that will never be again....

but it comforts me to think of them
and remember
the days
when I was young
and loved by some real good women.

that awkward moment
when you have a burning desire
hotter than a thousand wh0res
in a tiny church house
with one pastor
hell bent to save them all

that tiny ping
within the being
that aches for something a little more bright
and a little less numbing
than cold beer and hot whiskey

I've been making plans lately
for dates and stuff
but not from POF
never date anyone on POF
it's just a good place to write
when your other account
gets banned
nothing more

that awkward moment
when you have nothing to write about
but you shyt one out
just in case.

* i had a six year old thread on here but the mod deleted it for pure meanness *
obviously, she wasn't a poet or didn't particularly care for my writing.

Foodstamps get abused
so I hear
some trade off an entire month
for just a handful of pills
I've seen it happen
but I don't really think
it happens as much
as people think.

I waste my foodstamps on organic aloe vera water
and pizza rolls
we eat way too many pizza rolls
but I rarely buy pop
or much junk
but that aloe vera juice is kinda high
and I suppose I should feel guilty
for the three dollar bottles of organic juice
i purchase every month
but maybe it'll kill cancer or something
so I don't have to waste a bunch of medical card money

Perhaps it balances out
I don't do pills
but if I did
I'd feed my kids

some people don't
it's pretty sad
but hell
what can you do???

some people blow them on pills
others buy organic aloe vera juice.

I have to giggle

at least its not on candy or ice cream
yanno the kind at the gas station
some shyt costs five dollars a pop
you cant it eat with a plastic spoon
till it starts to melt everywhere

don't you sweat your aloe juice
I would rather you spend tax dollars
being healthy sweetness
then on expensive junk food or drugs
being cash low doesn't make you stupid

too sober to write
let me smoke another and maybe I'll remember
just what in the fvck in this world is worth writing about

cock a doodle doooooooooooo

I sit around watching hens reproducing and wondering why
I couldn't have been born with feathers

I saw some the other day
with their butts raw
from the talons
in their back
and I was jealous

cuz all my life
all I've ever wanted
is to fly...

Silently interrupting
one more breath of nicotine
one more beer in the fridge
a half a joint perched
but very few roaches in the coffer
more things to fold and pick out for him cuz i'm his momma
and that's what momma's do
and I wonder
if the baby will be gone again tomorrow
and if I'll be okay with one being gone
and maybe i should have told the baby he was going
but whatever.

the point is
the suitcase is nearly packed
and he only needs a few more things
to be set
and the baby
will just go to work with mommy
cuz he's easy to deal with
when brother isn't beating him to death

one dog's got a boil
the other eats bitties
the puppies are all healthy as shit now that they got the fleas off
but i don't have time to play with them
and my legs hurt
and my feet hurt
and I don't particularly care for walking on concrete
the hills hurt in other ways
but at least
the ground gives
sometimes too much...

It's hard to tend to dogs
and chickens
and kids
and old people
and mom
and my garden
is slap full of weeds

The louffa gourds probably died.

farmer's market begins
I missed the meeting yesterday
and shipped 13 packages today.

Sometimes I just want to let the peas go to straw
and run away
to the hippie land
take some acid
let my kids grow dreads...

so I feign loyalty
afraid of living a life
void of the comfort
of a soft plait of moss against my holey boots when they slip
and I catch myself
on some hazlenut tree.

everything else will always come out in the wash
and I'll get to those freaking weeds someday.

something about a swinging sax
gets yer ass shaking in its seat
and you almost forget every stupid thing
you were about to write about.

i was going to hide something here
tuck it away like a newborn babe
all sickly sweet smelling
and innocent

there are things that have been said
about me and others
and mothers
and lovers
and death
and land
and and and and and and...

Yer not supposed to use and in poetry
or really writing of any sort

it has to be in addition to, yada yada
there is also a stong sense of hakuna matata
and when my four year old comes through the living room
belting it like an old pro
I laugh
at a silly ho
that thinks the world is ending when so many beginnings keep occuring

i can't ever remember
if occur is spelled correctly
and it kinda frucking hexes me
for a moment

then I get over it
and realize this has nothing to do with God
or love
or sex
or charity
just something in me
needs ripped out
and disposed of
like a whelping dog
thick with infection and trying to succumb
to some stupid word doctors use
when they are wanting to scrub a medical card dry

I get a tear in my eye
when I think of the what ifs associated with
whether or not I've waited too long.

They sing songs
and get sick on carnival rides
a tear in my eye
cuz i want to see them get married
and do well
as well

what the hell
am I saying
who knows,
thanks for listening.

I hear something funny on the hill tonight
could be a person
or a coyote
but it's actually scaring me
and that's not my normal mode of operation

I'm a card carrying member of the hillbilly nation
and nothing scares me
except the truth
and I was going to tell you
something grand and wonderful about how pretty the stars were tonight

but it just doesn't feel right
there 's something out there
and I'm not sure
if it's a man or a meth head
or a critter

but it's got me all aflitter
and this is one of those occasions
when I wish I had a gun...

My little one
they know nothing of the danger associated with being
up a holler
all alone
with no one to call on the phone

ring ring
this is God
yer fvcked
now hang up
and get the hell out of here before you get yourself killed

bring it satan
we all know I'm suicidal
and I never will
confess my sins
before death

I'm not always a great person
but I don't reckon
I've hurt too many people to breathe

call me
if you can
I'm scared
I need your hand
against the phone and against my ear
It will help to take the fear

What is a girl to say
when she's supposed to be a woman??

but sometimes I wish
I had a smaller set of balls
maybe my pants wouldn't
fit so tight

I heard something on the hill
got me nervous

when they kill me
if they kill me
remind my children
that I loved them

when they kill me
if they kill me
be sure to save
those old pictures of me
when I was young and thin and pretty

remember that I did it
because I couldn't take it

remember that I forgot to remember
that i wasn't some freaking wh0re

when they kill me
if they kill me
love me

the peas don't taste right
bittersweet and melancholy

The smart grasses' bright pink hue
is a little off color
would never do
for a pressed flower this year.

The fog's molding places that have never seen mildew before
mudholes in the lane
big holes in the floor
and the roof is about to fall down in some places I think
but it hasn't yet
and I've always thought that
and mom has always said
everything is going to be okay.

His fvcking bull keeps eating my peas
I'm going to kill it.
It doesn't look right on this land
foreign intruder

These freaking humans are getting on my last damn nerves
with their wayward cattle
and cruel hands.

there was a silent whisper
a baby crying
refusing to eat
bawling his head off
he drifted to sleep

He will come to me in the morning
sweet smiles and kisses

The other one is hot against my leg
kids are always hot
hotter than lovers
something about the DNA...

I forgot what I was going to write
I had intended something more abstract
but I tend to distract
from the actual thing
and just write what's right in front of me.

I wish I were abstract-er
oragami pizza wings flying with the pigs

but when I try
it doesn't make any sense

so I'll just say I'm glad my kids are sleeping sound
and try to distract myself
from the wreckage
echoing off this empty, sleep deprived shell
some would call a penny, looking for a wishing well.

faster than a speeding bullet
ripping through the back of her skull
she thinks she's so pretty
and nice
she's a demon
on fire

I shoulda known better
I shoulda been paying attention
but I was stressed
and dying
and spending my days trying to get the fvcking roach shit out of her stupid freaking nasty ass kitchen

I shoulda been paying closer attention
but i was distracted
with life
never thought
didn't think twice
about the madness and stupidity present within some souls

my cousins would kill her
for me
no questions asked
I think

maybe not
I don't know
but I feel like a little lost soul
some days
other days
I don't

I hate this stupid world
they shoulda let us stay til school was over

I left the pedo whores back home
and put my baby
in danger

stupid fvcking ****
i wonder if my cousin will kill her

quietly sitting
in the wind
with beastie boys

thanks youtube

uh oh
that's some other song
that I don't want to hear

I have a hankering for paul revere.


I had some big private thing
to hide on this thread
but now I've forgotten
what I thought I shoulda said.

might be necessary
to recount the steps
back to sanity

I used to be young and pretty
now I'm fat and still a little pretty
if you catch me in the right light
and I'm not in the middle of a bipolar fit of anxiety


That was strong drink
I drank the rest
with root beer
now for the straight

I remember long ago
when I wouldn't drink on my birthday
cuz it's my daughter's death day
and I had this Trumped up version of nobility
bestowed upon me
by people that could never understand.

It's my ****ing birthday
I'll drink a pint of kessler
if I want to.


I like the quiet dark
he said
it's so dark here
**** light
why would you want light
when it's on a wall

make it dark
so I can see the stars
I was working all august
missed most of the perseids
but I caught a glimpse or two
from my front porch

meant to thank you.


I still can't remember what I was going to write
but I've been stuck on a smart phone a long time
and I hate them
and I hate cell service
running water
every ****ing bit of it

I hate it
not really
just felt like bytching.

I do miss my holler
and would gladly trade all the running water in the world
for one more good day
walking 'round it.

I'm always 40 dollars short
on something
before it'll go through
40 more
needs to be sent
to the man with the big bad evil mind
that pushes papers
through and electronic screen
we are all on the TV

I always fvck up
about 40 to 50 worth of stupidity
and it always turns into some 300 dollar thing
It's funny how my debt multiplies

and mom is convinced my cousin and my half brother
are trying to steal her land in Ohio

and she is always crazy
and I'm always exhausted with it all.

and 50 dollars shy
of the old books I intentionally overpriced
just so I could store them at the place
where I sold things and lost things
it's all gone now

the books
with mom's notes in them
the old musty smelling attic books
and I hate her
for not loaning me 50 bucks back in July

I hate getting behind
in life
always 40 short
never in time.

What in the fvck is a hillbilly from eastern kentucky
going to do with a jew from oregon

What do they eat
how kosher does it need to be
I guess his mom was christian
I guess he's not muslim
so bacon is still on the table

HE likes sweets
all the time
and I don't eat them
or cook them
but on occasion...

like my granny
who also wouldn't eat many things
'because it's too sweet'

what the fvck am I gonna do with a jewish marine from oregon...

who thinks trash shouldn't be burned
because it's against the law


but he's good at digging post holes
I could get a good dog run
out of him
or at least
a clothes line

I guess I can learn to cook sweets
that i won't eat.

still seems rather odd to me.

even I stay way from pork products
fresh veggies and fruit are always good,
most wont eat meat with anything dairy
cook chicken really well like you should,

if he was strict he would date another Jew
so simply ask him what he likes to eat,
have fun enjoy his company hes just a man
go buy him a box of something sweet~

you still make me smile :) wishing you a very Merry Christmas

he is military
I can only assume
anything is better than MRE's

that's what they say
if you hang around
those type of people

as a completely disorganized artistic anti government piece of shit
I must say
I haven't
really thought much about

appeasing the enemy
or whether or not it's okay
when palestine fires a paint ball
and we return with a missile defense system and perhaps a 50 caliber tommy gun

it's getting too deep
for my fishy ass
and I'm ready to fly
like a bird
but not like the chickens
he saddled me with

my dogs are relatively portable
as are the kids
they both puke
on curvy roads....

but it's nice to sleep
thinking about something
other than my farm.


merry christmas happy new year and happy new orleans shit I mean mardi gras
just in case I never come back again

you never know

life is but a dream????

and I ball up
like a stupid cheerleader
not that I ever knew what a stupid cheerleader was
but I assume it's somewhere between gifted and talented
and keys club
and beta club

I'm reading too much into it
and I have to run
but i have nowhere to go to....

he said
he was going to date a prisoner
because she stayed put

how bout an agoraphobic
with two kids
and a pack of dogs

I'm not going to cook kosher
or bleed out some prayer over a ****ing chicken
nor will I feed it to my kids
we have a lot of bumps

I have no idea what to do
they always love xavier
never wyattt

i have the baby under control
the oldest is what i'm concerned with
and that is not the type of package
everyone requires

these men
with their orgasms
what's the ratio

Going to be running wide open.
I can already tell
what the hell
would a girl like me do

I got too drunk the other night
off of 4 beers
no 5.

stoned blind
on 5

I think my liver is giving out...

I try to get into the Christmas season
by doing shit
and there is a huge pile of shyt
for Christmas
in a bag on the floor

I've been trying to set up something to set it up with since like 7 am
I'm not going to fix it
fvck the tree
fvck Christmas

Jesus was born in September
he's a Virgo
like Wyatt
who cries in the morning
because he doesn't have a dad
and I apologized to him
with tears in my eyes
didn't know it was going to be this hard
didn't know I shoulda married that other guy...
