Yesterday the reason why
Assholes were removed from one’s vision
Was body’s perfection
But what keeps us going is anything but pretty, Theodor
My uncle fell on a saw once
A true anonymity is a good anonymity
First chicken, best chicken
Take your beige and bathe your children in it
My city is a city of one’s own and although our altitudes mismatch
I hope you’re comfortable on your high horse
With your head up your ass Theo
Remember this
I was below the water but I didn’t drown
/
The axis is your tender belly button with a little mosquito bite above it
Here is your ornament M
I’m hauling boulders and bayonets at you to see what sticks
It was never only kill or be killed in this world, look here
I don’t come to you in peace. I don’t come to you in hostility
Basically I just don’t come at all
/
I’m sitting at my drawing desk
Trying to figure out if I’m in love
Fuck your drug-free zone
I’m walking in intervals to the window
You do not know what I’m talking about when I say I don’t have another plan
Here in your presence, shouts out to my crack pipe
We must often paint in the colors that are the colors of a bruised skin
The knuckles are like hazelnuts wrapped in a beige foil
I’m not thirteen and hurting
I walk over to the window to
Look at the shipyard
A ship is leaving the harbour so suddenly
Do you think it got mad at me?
