she
made sure I felt oblivious
she
made sure there were no witnesses
she
told me no truths
she
only spoke lies
she
knew what she wanted
she
got it - more or less
she
knew it wasn't me
she
took me in anyway

she
endured the abuse
she
took the pain of her past
she
was suddenly empowered
she
took it out on me and
she
crushed me into tiny pieces
and
"whoomp"'ed - "there it is" on my heart

she
never checked to see if i was still breathing
she
never asked if i was alright
she
never caressed or cared
she
killed me
she
resurrected me
she
threw me over board
she
never wanted to know me
she
is why i write these poems

i walk through a browned boulevard
freckles of cloves light my eyes
the hills i climb reach no valleys
once upon a time we were good

The NuErotic Art and Performance Exhibit was tonite. Dorthea and Tamara pulled off a great night in a cool space. Right off Sunset in Echo Park, The NuErotic was located in a large space with a huge dance floor, 20' ceilings and a nice lounge area with a fire roaring in the corner. Here's some Hipstamatic shots.

The night incorporated a fashion show, dancers, a performance by Tamara and Dorthea, lots of art, loungin', dancin', some amazing musicians, a performance by Toledo, and living art.

there are
there are so many
there are so many of you
there are.

we are

nights like this
heaven and hell
church from above
lift to bale
any second now
break on through
come to grips
depth ...
and meaning ...
too.
