Songs of the Month // October 2018

living dead but far from a zombie,

bite it bitter brains, i’m sustained off of my hobbies,

brittle bones, my mind zones,

my thoughts zip,

my lips zipped,

zapped, zonked, zen, zesty, and zealous,

no need to be jealous,

i’m just jellin’ with your hype,

i’m just feedin’ off your vibes,

rather than taking chunks out of your mind,


living dead but far from a zombie,

my dark circles run laps around your crop circles,

circle ’round and jerk away from conspiracy,

’cause ignorance is mighty spooky,

crooked capital cons caught calling out kooky,

gooky, gunky, lies sung as lullabies over witching hour skies,

i simply watch to write about all the ways in which they’ll cut ties,


living dead but far from a zombie,

my skin is peeling, my stomach’s reeling,

yet my heart remains beating,

it keeps in rhythm with your percussion,

and all of the sudden, i’m no longer paralyzed by potential repercussions,

sunnily, your singing stops me from fussin,

suddenly, i’m no longer pale-grey and grave, i’m flushed straight blushin’,

been over a year, beyond a official my dear, yet i swear i’m still crushin’,

itty bitty giddy giggles,

your love trickles down my spine,

and for just a second, i’m tricked into believing i’m still alive

Songs of the Month // September 2018


sunflower, sunflower, sunflower

empower me, sunflower,

shower me, sunflower,

nourish me, sunflower,

grow with me, sunflower,

i’ll shed my leaves to preserve my pedals,

i’ll bloom, but only for you,

bury me beneath sheets of rain,

reign cause you’re cherished, boo,

i value you as my sun, i’m your flower, true

colors bleed through,

seep through,

my skin is cellophane,

seep through, flooded by more rain,

but i don’t care if i never see the sun again,

umbrella, shelter, keep me warm,

hold me together from the outside,

ride along with me, a1 since day1 chillin by the wayside,

chillin’ where i reside,

hold me together from the inside,

sunflower, sunflower, sunflower,

i grow callous before i cower,

beneath moonlight,

imposter moonlit by false identities,

sunflower, sunflower, sunflower,

i’ll shed my leaves to preserve my pedals,

i’ll bury myself beneath lyrical riddles,

i’ll bloom, but only for you,

sunflower, sunflower, sunflower

Songs of the Month // July 2018

tears after laughter,

and tears in my wares,

where worn out blown out roundabouts seem to loop around,

we step outside ourselves to acknowledge what seems oh so profound,

found absurdities within novelties of what’s defined as normalcy,

seein’ this world through new lenses and feelin’ tremendous,

it’s splendid, spinning around endlessly,

it’s splendid spendin’ 6 hours lost within’ four walls ontologically,

spendin’ 6 hours squakin’ squeakin’ speakin’ talkin’ non stop chronophobically,

don’t stop,

just wait,

pause, wait for me,

pause, could you repeat that please?

pause, just lay with me,

hand in hand with fingers that intend to interlock,

lo-fi conversations where we share our monologue,

here we lay, safe in one another’s arms,

exposed, i’m disarmed,

exposed, you see me for who i am,

opposed to leaving so much undisclosed,

juxtaposed, poised alongside all timelines – er, time loops,

pointing out patterns, how is this world so connected and yet so scattered?

how is this world so connected and yet so shattered?

between flat earth and fake moons,

and fake news,

but what’s new,

we ask ourselves after trip ups,

sippin’ on itty bitty giddy giggles that turn to tear trickles,

trippin’ and spillin’ milk, moo moo moo,

this universe is moot moot moot,

utterly muttering, keeping composure even when reality seems to be stuttering,




deception, no wonder we subject this world to inspection,

glad we both value taking time out for a little reflection,

though i’m still deflectin’ mirrors,

at least until the glass gets clearer,

at least until

at least until

Songs of the Month // March 2018

despite snow storms, 
we stay warm, 
we stand tall, 
despite how you’ve made me fall, 
aww, crumble, 
bumble abuzz with awe,
mumble all full of fuzz, 
fuzzy headed, deeply embedded, 
in bed is where i wanna stay, 
i could lay here all day, i could stay here all day with you, 
just playin’ with you, 
just makin’ music with you, 
just amusin’ you, 
and you’re enthusin’ me, too,

despite snow storms and bee swarms, 
assignments due, all the shit to do, 
we get it done and just kick it, too, 
just kick it, too, 
now the weather’s gettin’ better, 
but i’m still interested in wearing you like my favorite sweater, 
don’t sweat time, we got tons of it, 
but it never seems long enough, 
ruff ruff got your dog jealous, 
zealous, a me amore, 
he’s barkin’ at the door ’cause i’ve got you tangled in adoration, 
shared aspirations and makin’ it happen, 
how did this happen, how did this come to be, 
before you i could barely see, now i can barely breathe,

breathless, stress less, i’ve let loose, 
struttin’ my stuff, pass that goose juice, 
juicebox me up while you beat box it out, 
mutter lullabies while the lights are out, 
while my eyes dim despite the sun’s shine, 
don’t need the solar ’cause you’ve got a hold over, over me,
float over and above me, i can feel your love, seay

Songs of the Month // February 2018

blarin’ instrumentals,
barkin’, bitin’, recitin’ what’s on my mental,
meant to repent to repeal to reveal how i really feel,
shoot i don’t even know what’s really concealed,
open up pandora’s box when i spit it, trip it,
rap so fast i get tongue twisted, flip it,
playin’ lyrical twister with my mister as i remain a mystery to myself,
word bank, rich w/ ideas that keep me from quittin’ it,
kitten, purr purr purrfect, cuddly cozy,
cheek’s are rosey, hormone’s oxytocin,
pep washin’ over me in tides when we lock eyes,
dopamine? you’re dope, i mean,
serotonin, adrenaline, but we stay chillin’,
illin’, baller,
aww your,
so sweet, so neat,
so c’mon let’s lay down another funky beat,
beatin’ hearts conduct their own rhythm,
i’m singin’ outta key now,
slowly losin’ the illusion of perfect harmony with these piano keys, ow,
voice cracks as my consciousness slips,
slippin’ slidin’ off to a dream,
seamless, easy to confuse the two realities when you reside behind my eyelids,

so c’mon, freestyle awhile,
smilin’ for awhile and,
shoutin’ out rolled down windows, what’s good?
goodly gobbledygook, ook,
ah ha ha, now i’m just playin’ round with these lines,
playin’ ’round, well rounded,
feeling grounded, feeling sound and,
feeling you, feelin’ this playlist, too,
play it w/ me, play w/ me, stay w/ me


xo v day 2018 xo

from late night walks to rose colors, 
vibrant, you vibrate vibes like no other, 
other shades and hues fuse,
dull, monochromatic, often unimaginative blues, 
blew me away only to pull me draw me in closer, 
close your eyes or let your gaze stay, 
stay, please stay for days,
days seem to blend, 
mix mix mister mister mix mix,
kick it kick it, sweet as pixie stix, stable, secure, and familiar as white picket fences,
calculate expenses, 
checkin check out checkin out checkin accounts, 
accounting for, 
moving forward,
onward we go, 
where will we go,
explore with me, 
irrevocably and unconditionally i adore thy
