Silo by T.W. Snicket

I was stuck in a silo
but I work better
on a team

Talking through
an issue

Finding results

Picture this memory by T.W. Snicket

Comments Off on Picture this memory by T.W. Snicket 30 June 2019

Pictures are my only
memories

I only remember pictures

There was this birthday
I had when I was 12 – 13
where I Puked and everyone
went home. They all left

I remember that

Everything other memory
is a picture

Stuck in my mind

I know there are studies
about this

They must be right because

All of My Memories

Are Pictures

From My Life

It must be Tender Times by T.W. Snicket

tenured-prof

Swipe right
Love me tonight
Leave in the morning

Wondering what our
story was

This is your place

I am 37

Do you want me to grab some
breakfast sandwiches

==============
As I walk into the street
to grab breakfast
half of me is saying
don’t go back
eat your sandy
go home and
wonder what her name is

but
I am fuzzy
and I think I remember
liking her

I am bring ing the
breakfast back
asking her right away
if she knows my name
then when she gets my name right

Inevitable asking me
What’s my name
I say Jen with confidence
She says “What”
Jen
My name is not Jen
Is your friend Jen
Ya her name was Jen
Shit
You idiot
My name is Regina

You know I was fucking with you
I told you last night
I hate Kennedy Carpet Cleaner

I am a Regina Steamer guy
Burrito Time

I already ate my SECOND
Can I use your bathroom

What a great morning

Trying to be me

Wondering what do you See

Fun Detectors by T.W. Snicket

Comments Off on Fun Detectors by T.W. Snicket 29 June 2019

Fun Police

Fun Detectors seem to be moving

closer and closer
shaping who I can be
I hear the beeps

I want to me
me who the fuck
I want to me

And then something horrible happens in our world
And we have to question

What can we give up
Who can we give into
to Make someone else feel safe

It is a fair question
But their cant be answers

No one is safe.

The moment you enter this world

You. Yes You.

[Before you read this next part
I want you to say these
words aloud
and do not move forward
until you can dance like
no one is watching
You say:
I am an Instrument
I am a Dream]

Continue:
No surveillance is going to help
Welcome to the danger

Like a fingerprint at
a crime scene
Like a battery
Wondering its place

We Find out that we are all guilty

No More Hiding
No More Hiding
No More Hiding

the Search is over

We all Won the show

And we all lost

Congratuationtions


Here is your Prize

I never Ryhme but by T.W. Snicket

Comments Off on I never Ryhme but by T.W. Snicket 29 December 2018

T.W. Snicket Not Rhyme
What am I doing

Am I getting life wrong

Living like I am

Magic seems to only happen in songs

Seeing faces of confusion

Wondering what happened to me

Weirdly forced to figure out
who and what I am supposed to be

But really who are you
and where should you be

I need to create
pictures
of today
of life

I see some
who can completely contradict
themselves
who have the ability
to forget why
they loved us
or themselves

I have never been just me

There has just been too much

The 30’s have been strange
At this point
I am not going to
Not miss opportunities

Weather dictates tomorrow

I know how to have fun
How to live in the moment

Finding smiles all around me

laughter and stories
The sharp eyed focus during the day

How in the hell can I just keep it
this way forever

Wednesday Poem of the Week – My only advice for your trip – Wipes by T.W. Snicket

Comments Off on Wednesday Poem of the Week – My only advice for your trip – Wipes by T.W. Snicket 22 November 2018

Wipes

Enclosed my friend

are the Cleansing wipes

that have

given me that simple moment of

relief and

Possibly saved

my life

 

Please Note:

These wipes are not

as biodegradable

as I wish

And by no means

Can be flushed

 

But

 

As environmental friendly

as we both are

as much as we both

try to keep a small

footprint

 

These wipes

do stop the itch

from a rhoid

And are a necessary

Evil

 

So Stay focused

Remember our first lesson

 

Stay on course

 

When needed. Wipe

Put in the hold bucket

And Seal

 

Stay on course

And

As always

Try not to push

Put my dog down and Fired
By T.W. Snicket

 

How do I even keep walking?

What

Oh shit

Was I in an accident?

 

— Sir can you hear me

 

Ya

 

—Sir

 

Yes I hear you

 

—Does anyone know his name?

 

Larry

 

— Sir can you hear me. Look at me sir. Here

 

Fuck ya I see you. Stop yelling

 

— He is not responding. Do not let him look down

— Hold his head down. Apply the tourniquet

 

Where are My legs

 

— The ambulance is on its way

 

Can they not hear me? Hey. You.  Shithead

I am not speaking

Something is not

 

— Sir stay with us. You are going to make it

 

Man does today suck

It has to go

Comments Off on It has to go 01 September 2018

old couch

How old are the
Pens and Pencils
we use
and
the ones
we toss

What can we ask
friends who
do not understand
the questions
we wonder about

The middle of
my couch is
now
uncomfortably
caved in

It is going to bother
me
more and more

Then
Finally
maybe Friday or
the Friday after that
I will
buy a new couch
with no money down

Staring at you, staring at me

The Show Tonight/Inside Sailing through the Night

 

If you Messes

Weren’t here

And the Band

Didn’t show up

I would be home

Wishing both

Of those

Things had happened

Reading is Fun

Laughing is Fun

Smiling is Fun

Silence is Fun

Awkwardness can be Fun

We all want life to

Be a simple

Handshake with the world

Saying

I am here

I have time

I am ready

Are you Ready

Ready

To Smile

To have fun

To be yourself

Forever
