“more than me”

I sat and waited
while you moved on, you always
loved her more than me

She said all the things
she didn’t really mean it
good thing she’s gone now.

Sometimes I go out and
Stand on the mat.
It feels good on my feet.

i wish my name had
punched through your front teeth like an
exorcised devil


i wish you had carved
my name in estuaries
down and down each cheek


i wish you had puked
my name like sour sustenance
too much wine and flesh


thought you dropped my name
at the salvation army
in bags of bedsheets


i watched my name run
away from you and i hope
you never find it

Part 1: i’ve never been good on the spot

hi Alex Burgyone
this is a haiku for you
it is very bad

Part 2: would you like to hear the applause?

small songs is our band
I’m surprised I’m in the group
you should play keyboard

Part 3: monday

today felt the rain
the wind brought softly with it
better than nothing

Part 4: roommates

this house is empty
and the cats ran out of food
we are all hungry

Part 5: better than nothing

each conversation
between us was forgotten
but never our love

today it’s really
hard to get out of bed it’s
hard to be a goose.

literally, all day. i’ve been in this bed. how does a human being even do this?

What a nice birthday present
Goodbye to old crap

“Some Words”

(not a haiku, still good)

The first thing I thought was “who in the hell gives a fuck about the migration patterns of Canadian Geese?!” And, the sad thing is, there’s, at least, 1 person who does, and she’s unrealistically excited because she now has a little over over an hour (a baker’s hour) to fill our heads with useless information that, I’m sure, we’re all going to actively purge. Her old, stained sweater, it looks like a pair of pre-distressed jeans, or a dumbass hat with a dumbass ripped brim, or something else that’s old, or the bottom corners of a couch of a cat owner, or the tattered jeans of that sexually ambiguous goth kid who sits a few rows down from me who ALWAYS smells like a shitty candle, or something else that should’ve been thrown out years ago, or something else that’s old. This is her time to shine. I’m usually a really nice guy.

Look, I am sorry
But we are trapped here for now
There is no escape

Has there ever been?
Has it always been this way?
Can we move on now?

Falling apart has
Never been as chic or as
Hip as it is now

Let’s break down the walls
Wear our best tight pants and shoes
And breathe on our own

Do it in

In the receding
black water, the sloshing sand
I see my future

Please, don’t be cliché.
Emotion trumps logic. Shit.

Hoping for something better.

“Shoulds and Woulds”

of days long past we
harken intermittently
“shoulds” and “woulds” arise

the time line though is
not reality but it’s
just like this–

“The Way I See It”

22 April 2012

by Mike “Nobody Nonperson” Witter

looked out the window,
saw the possibilities
drifting through the air.

so i went outside,
experienced nouns, via verbs.
no punctuation

i always see it
the way i think i should have…
in spite of the truth.

(sometimes, not always:
i over-think when i o-
ver-drink over time)

“the truth hurts” they say…
but only if you don’t live
honestly and true.
