Bitter transistor, hear the foaming
With the sunset so alarming
In the graphite smear
Where every dog is warm

Pencil, I stab the clouds with metal
And not even on your radar
Sew the caterwaul
And dive into a star

Glitter, dear sister, we go combing
All the beaches for the droning
Where the tentacles swirl
Light around your arms

Brother, I hear you, you’re another
Kind of robot for the cloning,
It’s a sadder life
Than any page you’ve torn

Flame-glow, grapefruit, impermanence
We aren’t what you thought we were
But never ever ever far
Tylenol, daiquiris, useless
End Zone wrecking catatonic
Swamp the swarm of false alarm

Gluestick, pin-drop, rhinoceros
Lit up like a stadium,
Fatal crash in every car
Jivedump, affectless and humorous,
No one calls our number,
But we’re not home and never are

Note to self, I’m only nervous,
Left out in the parking lot
Where no one smiles and no one scores
You might think you’re off the hook
You dread I’ll take a look
Into you where the darkness only roars
