Hello, hello, anybody there? This is me trying to talk to myself While I’m proceeding to get drunk as a skunk I got my reasons, which only makes sense to me now That a bird in the hand quivering Is only the distance between fright and freedom So if my courage is in my bottle tonight Well, I wasn’t...

Ode To Limbo

Limbo is someplace I go when I have no place to be Call it a twilight, a meridian of thought, it's the hiatus where nothing meets It's the cave of flickering shadows climbing upon the walls Even dreams dare not enter because they know they'll just get lost So, don't believe what you might have heard...

The New Punch & Judy Show

Who says my little toes don't like thin air popping up like a hippo's ears?
