i have neglected this blog in previous weeks

and so, 2 poems.

Respect Our Monuments

Respect our monuments.
Just leave alone the chainsawed cougar
clawing the flag pole.
Near the tracks
and you weren't there.
I just read something very interesting.
If I drank a bottle of Robitussin
you could be sitting in any chair.

Respect our monuments.
You deserve as many tattered filaments
as you can find.
Just don't you goddamn dare
tinker with my Hi-Liter,
you eugenicist.

Respect our monuments,
will ya?
We didn't carve all those guys's
faces into granite for Nothing.
Please don't stray off the path marked in yellow
or a buzzer will go off
and the Armoire will shoot RPGs at your face,
Capt. Tourist.
Patty Hearst be damned!
I-Didn't-Import-These-Sexy-Rocks for Nothing.

La La La La Paradise!

My wrists are angry because they are sewn to the English department's handrail. It overlooks the social justice that we may or may not have in the future. My wrists are so tired of waiting for a ride home. Maybe I will upgrade my cable and then blog about new channels. My guess is it's probably an extra fifty bucks a month. And you get to see Everything. Mmm. Her wrists remind me of Tillamook Vanilla Bean ice cream. I have a high fashion suit of armor and wouldn't you know, the maid fucking microwaved it.

2.

I just applied for a new job. I am very excited. I have always wanted to be a "Socialite." It was either that or "Sudanese Fiduciary Advisory Committee Superintendent." The other application was much easier. It had questions like, "Are you, or have you ever been a member of a Lost Generation?" So sue me, please, I am going down and I will take you all with me.

3.

We're going down down. And sugar we're going down. And we will be at the bottom of Everything and we'll see it. We'll see it.

4.

Breathable polo, why do you taunt me with your itchy collar. We only buy the finest. We only adopt Blue Whale babies.

5.

I have keys to everything now and I don't send Christmas cards. Tell all my ex-Saturdays that I am well and that I have found happiness in something else.

Robitussin is an interesting brew.
