Habits – Tj Belfiore

another blank canvas comes at me in waves,
so much potential for this,
this routine within me,
but passing are the days.

Habits – Muir Hughes

It is the habit of my heart to unbutton
unexpectedly and often
the ailment is progressing
yesterday, the thin thread threatened
to break utterly
and shred the night
it’s a bloody affair
with many stitches of repair
it gets weird at times
not knowing when it will snap undone
or just unravel
with the sound of a voice
lost in time but alive inside
teardrop shaped
and sweet as nectar

Kick the Sheets – Oh Dae-Su

To live again,
to breathe again
in the overcast
of the morning star.
Nothing to lose
so I bloom from chrysalis
with a blunt in my mouth.
Sweat into a summer daze.
I feel vibrations
in telephone lines
and the long distance cries
of cicadas singing.
Tonight my friends have plans,
while I have an abundance of empty
bottles on hand.
I think I'll go for a ride,
cut the seasonal cuffs
and fly on my Schwinn.
Cruising through orchards,
searching to binge
so I can fuck my liver again.
I'm falling back
to my summer rhythm.

A Tale Of One Habit – Michael Tobias

It was the best of habits, it was the worst of habits. Reasonable, even, is my resistance to change. “Complacent!” cries my yearning heart. “Careful,” responds my cautious soul.

Urinating On Dirty Dirt – Douglas Hargrove

Everywhere I go these days
I can't get away from

Vices, fixes, fiends, tweakers
Low lifes, losers, jail birds,
Assholes, thieves, candy steppers, hags
Ratchets, junkies, hoes,
Druggies, bag bitches, burn outs
Coke whores, crack heads, e-tards
Fried up Geek monsters

asking me how I'm doing today
"I'm alright, I guess." I reply

You should never judge a book by its brother
It's hindering your life and theirs

How you may ask?
Go downtown and sit on any corner
And you see how easily humility comes to you
When you ask that man or woman for a dollar
Because your stomach burns, and I mean burns
With hunger
And they give you a dirty look
Tell you to get a job
And the only habit you have
Is needing something to eat
We'll see when your faith in humanity dies

Exposure is a pathetic and pitiful way to go
