another’s screamed in the suburban night  nightly


and i can’t say  ghetto!

black eyes + pawnails   not standard issue   he was



humanpoodle  rode a toboggan   hide+seek  a fave

except we always knew where to find him  same closet

where love letters hidden  +found

greasy elvis doctor?  blankstare  +sphinx  tiny smile

the game:  here lies blacksonovitch  covered in small bro’s

vomitous blanket   he was a fine man   the real dogfuneral

10 yrs later
