Treasure Island

Theorem The Truth Serum

(1979-present / San Leandro)

One Man's Brain


Distasteful references of the inner city
by an uninhabited brain from the outer rim
It is so far gone from the real world
that it splatters itself all over the tv
A fly stuck in its own blood
The eyes still work and everything else is intact
The heart has a pulse and the brain an electrical current
It believes that this theatrical commentary
is the mediator of real knowledge
The TV is a screen into one man's brain
his thoughts and ideas about how life should be
Each channel flashes into different thoughts and interests
They are the same thoughts but with different scenery
There are mostly people who look like him
The reality of the channels are so far gone
Brains farts of psycho babble that is unintelligible
A cocktail mixed with tree and birds
poured over everything that is bad
turns into this fake goodness
This is why their is racism because there is racism on tv
This is why dogs are painted with nail polish
Everything stupid is on tv to be laughed at
Everything smart and rational is left out

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
