It saddens me to report that one of our long time writers has passed away after a battle with Cancer. She was a great person, a fan and supporter of many of the projects we’ve done with Haggard and Halloo and Business Deal Records. She wrote over 40 poems over the last decade for Haggard and Halloo and her kindness, wit and keen observation will be missed. Today we’re reposting one of her older poems in tribute. -TC
and you will know me by the trail of ding dongs
by “DIY” Danna Renee Williams
Running like a rat on the treadmill
away from those soiled thoughts of you again.
“Run, Christian, run!”
to a beach with sand in my buttcrack
waiting for the beautiful rapture
stealing lines from old songs
and familiar names
while perfecting that Galveston tan.
you are perfected by exposing the film
that has been colorized and bleached
by the polluted waves.
i was the seaweed at your feet
a tangled mess choking itself.
don’t believe what’s written in the sand
over your buried photo:
she calls you pookie in public
and pinches your little white ass
says sunshine to your private places
sodomizes you with convenient size middle finger
while you spank me, the naughty girl
in scrumptious dreams.
see – i can be cute and girlie in my sleep.
you feign sleep
i write this love letter and wonder
when i’ll see your naked lunch.
maybe in July
on an indoor picnic blanket
as you watch water-rusted reels
of Jacques Cousteau on the Discovery Channel
after leading me to your forbidden zone
with a trail of cream-filled Hostess goodness.
