A different kind of gate

My brother, who is an extremely talented writer, has been collecting my poems for years. I asked him to curate a few of my pieces since I’m the absolute worst judge of my own work. I’ve been surprised in the past by what people ‘Like’ and consider interesting. Fascinating, to see certain poems from a radically different POV and a different life. These were written in 2005. Andrew did not disappoint.

Standing in Line: Where/When That/They
Con/Jur/D Monday Mourning, June 20, 2005, 9:17 AM


Feral Mundanity
Postmodern Virus
Is where the evil
lies


Banal Plebeians
Ordinary Being
Is that of the
fall


Reborn Misogynic
Temporal Decadence
Is when ethics are
born


In Truth
Or lie
They just wanted a
coffee.
