tell the N in your disorder... never mind
nut? noob? nothing...
my smile woke up introverted too, but i promised
to pull back the curtain and describe the day to you.
the sky is buttered toast- it cooked a little too long
there's not a cloud in sight
or breeze- or the smell of coffee.
i think the Lord backhanded the sun-
if i had tourette's i would dedicate a song to you
but since i only have one ear open today,
i can't pay attention closely.
-there's dried blood around the drum.
a lady said that's a sign of nautical neurosis,
that i need to dunk myself
in a river if there is no ocean nearby...
i told her i would laugh at the madness instead
then shook her hand like it was a done deal.
so how do i whip your butt into shape?
i opened a new tab and read all about your situation-
even double clicked on intelligent sentences,
defined new words, spoke in italian at one point
then wrote it down to prove it-
it's dark where you are- maybe raining
cats and dogs or tigers and frogs
anything that rhymes
because we're supposed to funk around,
jive to poetry- kick style when it's uptight
i'd kick you in your cerebellum
if i was wearing steel toed boots
say something nifty like
'there. now you don't have meningitis anymore'
(write it down- you might need to explain
that one to the doctor)
so there's a red rectangle, so what-
i don't write for praise or popularity
none of those P words... well, one P word
i write for P.s.
pancakes & syrup
now all i need is
and the middle of nowhere-
