Enough


My brains don’t work like others do
The same thing goes for my heart too
Enough enough enough enough
Of all this repetitious stuff

Overheated conversations
Character assassinations
Horrible communications
Calcifying observations
Suffocating obligations
Nullifying occupations
Cancerous considerations
Unintended aggravations
Unconvincing explanations
Overcooked imaginations

Misunderstood meditations
Incorrect interpretations
Overcrowded isolations
One-sided collaborations
Questionable motivations
Immoral insinuations
Pornographic situations
Foolish overestimations
Necessary illustrations
Of intimate limitations
Unattainable elations
Uncontrollable frustrations
Unfulfilling expectations
Of immortal incarnations

Temporary consecrations

Cascading exhilarations
Heart-stopping illuminations
Undiluted contemplations
Overwhelming fascinations
Disappearing concentration
Threatening incineration
Catastrophic conflagration

Enough enough enough enough

Named one of New York's Best Emerging Poets 2019, my poetry chapbook The New Normal was published by Analog Submission Press. My novel The Zoo was published by Cacoethes Publishing House. Other poems and short stories have appeared in Subterranean Blue Poetry, The Journal of Microfiction, and Sick Lit Magazine, among others. Other works include a staged reading of my play Digging Up John Barrymore, performed by Dreamcatcher Entertainment, and five albums of original music recorded with my band Late Model Humans.
