Riding My Bike Back From the Mall

you knew this
was coming,

I got a bike,
I write about
    everyday things,
and voila!

I know
it's not deep,
or obscure academic

It's comprehendable,
not dada-esque --
revered dada-esque.

It's not even
Charles Bukowski
drunk pathetic

No metaphors,
no rhymes,
no special names of plants
or other things
no one really knows.

O Robert Frost,
this is not
your poetry!

I'm not counting
my syllables,
dear Haiku!

I'm not
going to a "slam"
to recite this
while I bob
back and forth
and angrily
try to make it
more than it is.

Instead, I'm telling
a simple story:

I rode my bike
  back from the mall
  and I was happy.

Love Note

Your heart
      was made
                to love me

Don't deny it
      the chance

Love and Lust

We could go on
love and lust.

We, all of humanity,
could go on
like that,

but let's start
a new era
