Sixty Years Old (Worn Out Sandals for Sale or I Still Jog Through Cemeteries in Light Blue Trainers)

teeth fall into the grass

wrinkles take off

living a hard life

in soft spoken mirrors


lost an eardrum in december

caught up with my liver


for charity: 

bald spots

abused eyeballs

take away armpits


nothing is left

but me

it’s really like this:

reality = nosebleed


worn out sandals for sale

trust me: i’m no one’s hunk of a man

just soy breath

and a yearning for tape decks

so thank you migraine

root canal

love handle

goodbye cleavage

bee gees

midnight margaritas

i'm gone


I still

see the beauty in zebras

crossing my pathway

I still

laugh at Tikka Masala

under my eyelids

I still

jog through cemeteries

in light blue trainers

I still

admire the unseen world

between my kneecaps

It’s really like this

Reality = Goosebumps


the unraveling of sore thumbs

So thank you gelato

viagra breath

rising keyboards

goodbye monster mind

pimple mirror

punch drunk navels

I'm here
