exchanging whispers
with the rose and the spider
and there’s some things
you can only learn
from the dead sparrow
you find lying on the sidewalk
and if the Volkswagen of your mind
is careening out of control
then you need a Weatherman
to show you the way
preferably
with a cherry bomb tied to yr skull–
waiting for the Sumerian flood
and with 37 years of misery
sweating down my hairy back
sad to say
but that’s all I’ve learned–
if you wanna know anything else
write to Lou Reed.

and abandoned cars
I liked being alone
and I would do
random acts of

I’d look at my watch
and it would say 3:04 AM
and one of those nights

and so I said to myself

putting thoughts
in your head you’re

gunman on the grassy knoll
to split open
Jack Kennedy’s head
like an Irish watermelon
I believe almost every
conspiracy theory
I hear cuz
they’re usually right
like war for oil
and COINTELPRO
we paranoids
are people with vague ideas
about what’s really
going on.
