Statement

apparent transparency

leaves me disparate

put your hood up now

 

monstrosity

Y

monsrosity

Y

monstrosity

 

 

combination of heavy metals

illness of a dreamer

major imperfections of an artist

now amplify

 

fumes of cars infiltrate the atmosphere.

we are in brooklyn-

in prospect park

a jeep passes by

the mouth of the jeep presses up against my stomach

this is not erotic

i’d say it’s abuse

 

ignore and move on.

pretend you’re running from a predator like you always do.

 

now

pee is runner up for strongest smell

alternating with car fumes

and garbage trucks

while dog shit makes

microscopic patterns in the grass

only viewable from the sky

like from a plane

but you have to use the zoom button on google maps to get a close up

 

you don’t know how to use syntax

you use too many cliches

but perhaps following the book of infinite rules

is a fruitless journey anyway

 

anyway,

there is dried out shrubbery

and there are abandoned bike frames

but it is not the apocalypse yet

and we only use that word cuz it’s a label for fear of the unknown

 

my head begins to float away into the sunrise

like balloons

and

as my mom says

balloons go to balloon heaven

so

if my head is full of information

maybe God will let me in

but otherwise

i shall follow the balloons because my head is full of air

 

and my body, which consists of heavy metals,

will biodegrade faster than Styrofoam.
