Formerly Badass Horrible Poetry

This isn't just a poetry blog. Let's be honest, a lot of what I post is poetry but there are more often than not also postings about short stories. I do try to keep this blog separate from my others and post strictly creative work here. Some of it will be better than others, and much of it is in first or second draft stage when posted. These are raw works, and there will be spelling and grammar troubles at times because I use this blog to gauge what works and what doesn't. I use it as a place to get feedback. That's the reason it is "horrible". Because it's not finished-- And why should it be? We all want feedback but most of us are too afraid to put ourselves out there.

Welcome to my word.

Glow in the Dark Chalk

New free form piece. Haven't poeted at you in a while guys-

Glow in the Dark Chalk

In your head
the chalk smears the asphalt with
vivid colors
but dust always fades
and the picture breaks apart
in glacier melted puddles. They
brown and are swept
down
the drain.
and what's left over, ingrained in
carpet
from crumbles of it found in
shoe treads
gives the fabric freckles
for a few more days -
but only in The Dark.
then they disappear too
swallowed
by the envious fibers
and all that's left
are the pictures in your head
that have faded even more than
the chalk
