Night Be Mine

Night be mine.
All its darkness.
The moon. A
Wall of stars.

Night of dreams.
The moonlight.
The punctual train.
And dark shadow.

Because night
Beats life into
My wings. I

Dream of night
And its stars
And dark shadow.

How Good You Have It

You do not know how
good you have it until
you have been Haldol’ed.

If I had gone into the
family practice and learned
math, I would have been ok.

Just send me home, where
I can continue to dance
to my own music and beat.

When is the pizza coming?
I don’t need to work. Call
a cop or call a copycat.

I cannot hear you. My ears
stopped working years ago.
Blame it on Schizophrenia.

Call a cab for me or put me
on a bus to Neptune or Mars.
I want to get out of this place.

I am sticking to my story
and you stick to yours and
I’ll catch you outside one day.
