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.

Remnants - part 2


the subjects got bored
swathed in color oil
stepped out of their picture frames
for a drink
her timid shoulder barely squeezes
wrapping around the canvas
she does not want the artist
to see her
like when her reflection
posed // poised
naked & all legs melded up
into a spine
fused with golden under-paint
the stiff breeze
sweeps a jacket upon her back
as white shirts and suits
leer into her
she wishes she could climb up her frame
& the photographs lining the slant
to the leafy halo
and dangle her toes over
the edge
like a statue
