the only thing that I see is
a a bra standing in the corner
staring at me through an unbut-
toned polo tee sort of garment

there seems to be a coil pul-
sating in my ear but the on-
ly thing I seem to hear are the
faces far and near glistening

in a naked fear given up
to scowls and laughter. As I cross
the divide my skin goes from red
to white and my blood follows soon

after cold nights bring cold nights and
reveling in drunken fights as
I pass the flights and flights trying
to absorb the hanging lights in

order to fix my wire the
Sociologists collect in
throngs trying to decide what they
did wrong as I hear the one who

lives with me pulling strings of
jealousy and playing his part
to the T in only later to
admit that he has done his best

to master mediocrity
to obtain the bouncing god we
are all seeking I spread white glue
all over my face hoping to

achieve temporary stasis
and I make myself a foreign
meal with foreign utensils and
a foreign grill which I force the

gaggle to bear witness to who
chew their cud to keep their attri-
butes and recoil when I speak of
ancient kings, shrewd but without lux-
ury who built their castles in

the sky and surrendered them know
ing they would die and who in fact
did die some time later. As my
second face begins to melt I

make my way to bed and release
my belt given 5 minutes to
fall asleep as noise comes through the
walls incessantly before my

cohabitant returns in vio-
lent glee to kick his brain ex-
statically in preparation
for a game he plays alone now.
