Purple Disneyland characters
dance maniacally
on top of battered heads
tired and sleepy
while children
marvel at the new technology

Laughter rattles down the hallway
startling innocent passersby
causing micro hallucinations

World blown up
into a tin cup
sipped and kissed
by cut lips
bleeding
into the microcosm
tossed aside
like snot flying
from a blown nose
cocaine dandruff
brushed into
oblivion
and full in it’s
emptiness

Lefty said I’m no Righty
Righty said fuck off Lefty
I’m a-calling the cops
maybe that’ll make you stop,
wings melted from the heat of the sun
brains splattered onto concrete for fun,
it’s an empty kind of world
filled with a hollow emptiness,
I hear you crying it does no good
so put away your tears
embrace your fears
there is no forgiveness
for the sins you begat
like a biblical illusion
full of holes and transitory reality

Bodies on the highway
mystical mythical corpses
burning and stenching
no one knows
from whence they came
as we dance the biblical illusion

“There is no god,” shouted the devil
“but, if there’s no god
then that means
there’s…no me.”

* poof *


Notes

  • The words flowed quickly for this one. When I completed it, I looked it over and decided to forego editing. Sometimes, it’s best to leave it as is.
  • I wanted to do a straight poetry reading of this piece without any musical sounds. I did it in one shot – no editing of the reading. You can hear a pause or two where I catch my breath for the upcoming verse.
  • This was fun to do!
