The Artist... by EricForFriends The Artist... :iconericforfriends:EricForFriends 127 116
from 3:13 AM
i found a skeleton in my bed,
having died honourably and horribly
like a coward
through the course of that day.
and i wanted to send you a picture, i did,
but leave it to me to find
a self-conscious skeleton. you always tell me
i’m disaster-prone. you always tell me
you’re the only one i should listen to.
but the skeleton- the skeleton, remember,
it’s in my bed. i weighed it
and it’s only eight kilograms. god,
must’ve been some tiny person;
god must’ve been a tiny person.
there’s a ghost, too, somewhere around.
i wanted to name it. something beautiful,
something that flows of your tongue
nice and easy in conversation,
a string of words made for being spoken.
it’s a sad ghost, you know,
the kind that chills the room when
it shows up, the kind that fists my hair
in its palms when i forget to say hello,
the kind that would scratch
at your skin just to get your attention.
i wish it would listen to me.
it leaves dark scabs on my legs

why nobody brags about being a poet
poets and skeptics tolerate each other
because of simple convolutions.
poets develop insomnia and will spout off
such pretty words, but they cannot
give reasons for why the night’s tendencies
to be reliably inconsistent in susurrus murmurs
make them disconsolate. see, poets know when
things go wrong—a steady thump-thump heartbeat
slip-up that creates nooses in which,
in an effort to avoid becoming insipid,
poets go pursing for pretty words (sorry,
pulchritudinous etymons) that will remind everyone
of the fallacious fabrications where they are
the ones who are better. poets act as the contingent
constituent between psychosis and psychological
investigations that try to explain why
all of humanity suffers from mild superiority complexes.
(of course, poets don’t think they are good people.
they panic when they lose count of the stars
and get triggered perpetually by
such absurdly austere things—be mindful in the
vicinity of poets;

the dissection of matricide
the first thing you have to learn is how
if you pull and mold your nose with
your fingers, it will shape the cartilage
in slopes and thin streams to allow
the slimy species of  scaly fish
to reproduce and (meiosis)
in the paper thin skin that separates
a chapter from a novel
people do not smell like roses when
they wake up and they don’t keep
their fingernails clipped the way
you do - instead they wake up with
the leftover taste of rum rolling around
in their mouth, forgetting
that they called you at three in the
morning to wonder why you
never kissed them back that one time,
and how you got out of that
ticket when a cop pulled you over for
speeding because your tears
were never sad, they were rubber
burning on the streets, the cacophony
of nebulous bathroom tile sobs;
projectile vomit;
eleven-hundred pixels and miles per
hour and you still can’t fly
the second thing you have to learn
is that you must wear your
culture like a badge until he peels
your skin away like th
