Baby and a Girl

I think about you so much

You're part me 

I look at you and think

You're just a baby


And a girl


You have such a laugh

That I almost cry every time I hear it

It's so obvious you're so smart

I'm so proud to be your dad

You make me laugh and you make me cry

All at the same time


You make me feel incomplete 

When you're away

I think about you often

And I hope that you're at the least okay


You're growing so fast

I don't want you to

But I have to let it happen

You have to be you


I hope you'll be proud of me too

And call me Dad

I wish you the best in life

I wish you peace and joy

Such simple wishes

But I wish them the hardest 

For you


You're growing so fast

All Birds are Regular




A featherless bird.
Now that's absurd!

What about a Hummingbird?
That's a regular.

A duck?
A bird that's a quacker.

New flying dinosaurs.

The word regular,
I shake my head. 
Nothing is.
All birds are regular,
Even the peacock.

Flying is preferred,
Except those irregular.

Blue Blood

I bled today.
I forgot how much it hurts.
​I felt real again.

It didn't seem like reality,
Before.

My life sprayed out beneath.
And I was me.

It was nice,
To bleed.

​I finally broke,
My machine.
Myself.

I can build back up,
And be the same monstrosity I was.​
Maybe I can become better this time.
Who knows?

I hope.
