the woodpeckers

have pecked themselves  out
committing suicide
against        southern trees
bearing strange fruit

and i'm a sane man
listening to billie holiday
on a cd player   it's almost criminal
the tears start flowing

for this you cry?
the current girlfriend   starts screaming
her     version of crazy
easily defined            by merriam webster

mine is slow, uneasy
         hiding under     the bed
like a dirty magazine
i never cry during                the tearjerkers
that's what they
                                  would have you believe
