A Delusion

        I never met another man i'd rather be. And even if that's a delusion it's a lucky one.

Less of a Burden

       Your life is over. You're a dead man. The only thing the doctors are hoping to do is teach you to be less of a burden to the orderlies.

Memento Mori

short story upon which Memento is based


Never Knew Her

              I never knew her in life. She exists for me through others, in evidence of the ways her death drove them.

I'm the Guilty Party

                           Oh you'll never be the guilty party girl
                           Maybe someday we can go hiding from this world
                           Maybe i'll never get over the change in style
                           But i don't want to lock you up and say your mine
                           Don't want to lose you or say goodbye
                           I'm the guilty party and i want my slice
                           But i know you've got me and i'm in a grip-like vise

And All That

                I believe in god and mercy and all that. But the dead are happier dead. They don't miss much here, poor devils.

Just before Midnight

                  Thundershowers hit just before midnight, drowning out the horn honks and noisemaker blare that usually signaled New Years on the strip, bringing 1950 to the West Hollywood substation in a wave of hot squeals with meat wagon backup.

Devil to Pay

                                      Go on girl take your chances
                                      See how long you can go from man to man
                                      I can read the lines between your stolen glances
                                     And i know it's time to fold this losing hand

Devil to Pay
