the dead would take the living with them if they could
they do of course for the rest of our lives up here
they walk with us dreamed+undreamed sometimes
in a wristwatch in a lightflicker a shadowman in a chair
(but didn’t i just leave you in a hospital bed??)
up here we live out our days
inglorious bastards primed
for more until none
but before that we go through motions every goddamned
March it snows again blows we walk quickly windbent bitter
we change clocks as though we own time don’t we??
kidnap the minutes u lost when your brother spoke but u
couldn’t listen to another lunch 6 dollars! 6 dollars!
he smiles knowingly imp+okay
we were working on the art of conversation just before he
went away: ok Mart now it’s my turn to say now u ask a
question pretend interest now it’s your turn +suchwise
6 dollars! 6 dollars!
10 tacos beans+rice
the whole enchilada
6 dollars ape!
