Finding Words


Finding words when life is present
Discovers nothing worth saving.

Knowing life is present is a shocking
Revelation that everyone knows
Leaves the moment it is gleaned.

Repeating thoughts again
Wastes time.

Find something new to refresh your soul, words lift your veil.

Playing with Trolls


Even the most intelligent ones
Cause a mind to get exhausted.
Following their minutia leads down paths of thoughts where normal reality no longer exists, it’s all just the minutia.
They live in their own world and when they engage, try to be kind in your simplicity so they go along the way.

Lemon Water


Lemon water
Take me away
From all the thoughts
That my tap drops.

Such thoughts are toxic
Like what I drink
Building sores I cannot see
Which maybe will not actually be.

Sometimes it’s real, though
That toxicity.
Build me stronger than that
Cuz that’s life on earth.

#gratitude I do not live in Flint.

I have things to learn


and only I know what those things are.

Oh, sure, there are practical things like “Niki, people are really nice, not everyone wants you back in jail again.” Because, I don’t know that world they live in, I just have to trust I’m finding it because someone said THAT to me the other day.

Sometimes I do listen to others and not say anything at all, most of the time, I really do just listen.

Knowing another may never know you, does not preclude you from thinking you know everything except that nano particle of being that keeps matter formed together to make any real sense, and the only way to know that nano particle of anyone is by touch.

Everything else is a random story in my head I started writing when I was born in a county jail.
