depraved drug kingpin
dealing rearview mirror school
Honeybun Croslin

full life by eighteen
babysitting at seventeen
stepmom eighteen

months in between lies
missing murder haleigh drugs
lying to police

did i mention lies
DISNEY marriage and divorce
every single day

undercover cop
buyer riding in your car
off to jail you go

twenty five years
honey buns braiding hair missing
lying to cops

can’t wait for the day
you are charged with murder
feel it in your bones

Radioactive
.

“On the prison bus
breathing in the chemicals
feel it in your bones”

“mean i’ve had a rough
day at work but i don’t get
to go to Disney”
.
Nancy Grace CNN 10/5/09

she had a rough year
misplacing a child from bed
fed alligators

lied hourly
sold drugs to undercover
bought sold AND swallowed

having now twenty five
years to learn the difference
between come and came

if i had a nickel
every time you said i come home
billionaire

interrupting
this haiku with nancy grace
radioactive song .

are you peeking

six four two a m
“bird bird bird, bird is the word
i said bird BIrd BIRD ”

faster and louder
someone stepped on the remote ?
it’s the beach channel

wishing Bubbulah
if someone must awaken
she jumps on the bed

peeking down at you
waveless mattress you can’t feel
hair covering eyes

mustn’t laugh at her
nose asks if you are peeking
don’t open your eyes

if she hears you laugh
licking your face rouse laughter
travels side to side

wake up and play now
running stepping on remote
always channel three

she loves CNN
incessantly CNN
” this is CNN “
