Imagine my surprise when I opened the towel to wipe my face and saw stains. Thought I took care of that. Don’t usually leave evidence around, that proof that something’s awry not that anyone would believe we really exist with all the hype these days and faux superheroes that draw everyone’s attention away from reality. I laughed to myself though I know the body is gone safe in the hands of the Necro who took it with the trash last night. Like everyone else I simply put it out the night before, nothing unusual and no need to worry about it in the morning. More time to have juice, make espresso, just sit and think, I mean why not. Just saw a movie the other night with a vamp that eats apples. Apples! Where do they get these ideas? Still, we’ve come a long way from blood only with everything else making us throw up though there is that one thing after all this time, dead man’s blood, is till an issue…


I Was Innocent

He would punch me in the face his favorite place

Does that make you feel better

I’d fight back you see nail him right in the jewels worthless things 

That’d snap him out of it and he’d laugh though not amused

Over the foot of a child’s bed or when I held the baby he’d strike

Couldn’t fight back then protecting them

I know what it is to see stars the real thing

Scattered white flashes in the brain until he was done then get off

Bruised and battered imagine should make you feel good inside

Smarter, prettier you can compete and hope teeth fall out for all to see

Make it your happy thought

But before that when I was very very young just making the scene as it were

And a man would approach using his best lines I’d delight be filled

I knew thanks to great grandfathers they rule

I’ll never forget him and what he shared just from being with him as a small child I knew

Not knowing I knew realizing later making the scene getting back to a man

I’d light right up because I knew what he wanted, what he hoped, the outcome he wished

And I’d share after all one being to another we’re on the same page aren’t we

If he’d change just two words around and say it this way anyone he’d approach would succumb

Forever a success, a win come sit and talk we’ll have a drink

But leading in with ‘does that work for you each time you say it’ wasn’t the best

It wasn’t welcomed as I’d expected his face would drop offended he’d be

“What, what’d I say” that’d be me not just for men and dumbfounded expressions

Oh well, oh my, oh, oh dear

Naïveté no

I was innocent

Innocent I know

A Banshee For A Girlfriend


I saw a hell hound put out with a fire extinguisher

Who knew

He said hey I know their secret plan

I’m fine go get them

As they overcame the pale riders on the storm

No souls for them today

No train to take making them riders too

I ask again who knew

But the bad guy alive since WWII set himself up as their boss

His loss as his lack of soul made him one with them

They’re in it together that is his speed

There is no leader

Bullies together one for all

Why then cry out in dismay, dispair

As all vanished leaving the town in peace


Just one thing


You brought everyone back but something hitched a ride

This one’s on you

There’s always a price

It must be sent back


For the rest of the season

There’ll be something to do
