Illegal Talk

IDIOLIST

Each year the coons come
we call them Cape Minstrels now
the word coons was hurtful

the phone rings it’s my sister
why does she feel so glad about things
so up

I tend my child
but cannot manage
days of engagement
I must escape
breathe alone
just be

can tiredness infest the body
my eyelids darken
encircle with black
too tired to be happy

I smile with my lips
but my eyes have died
I’ve turned into one of those
Ayn Rand despondents

AGED LOLITA

Flirt with
your daddy
make him
pay your way

Squeeze tears
for your daddy
make him
see your way

Stay close
to your daddy
make him
protect the way

Dupe
your daddy
he’ll miss your
double faced play

Let
your daddy
stoke your
beautiful balls of steel

What a good girl
you are

OY VAY

What if we’re
on our own
the big meaning
never known

At the end
we just go alone
to no Holy place
just sand over our face

What if
there’s
no big old plan
Or grand
energy
force
driving
us

No meaning
at all

And no
God to call
