Friday & Saturday / Sushi & Art / Salem, MA & Dover, NH
New EP’s out today. Get it here.
April 1st & feeling
I’m drawing ghouls on unlined paper,
& counting my breaths.
It’s more therapeutic nonsense.
I have no WISDOM to impart.
I have NO GOOD ideas but NONSENSE
clogging my vas deferens and
PAKT into my pinky toes like cottage cheese in condoms.
Waiter there’s no poison in this kool aid.
Waiter there’s a poison in my outlook.
Waiter. Did I ask–(NO!) DID I ASK TO LEARN YER NAME?!
No BRAINS left in this little headamine…
so THIS’ll BE the DAY that I—DIE, OR!
if today’s not good for you I could reschedule…
I fuck the law
& the law cums. [repeat (ad nauseum)]
…& the law MAKES NO EYE CONTACT
just a kicka the hoof & a squeal.
Kendrick wants his mule & forty acres.
Kanye pre-YEEZUS needs a getaway.
Jigga is giggling on Letterman &
I’m with him
I’m not with you tonight, Walt Whitman––
There are self-help books on my nightstand
beside the astroglide, ashtray, gameboy,
flu medicine, coffee mugs, doctor’s bills,
& dental floss.
If anyone needs me tell em not to––
I’ll be in bed.
