hello. i've been feeling a bit down the last few weeks.
"hello. I've been feeling a bit down the last few weeks."
such a stupid trick
where i'm writing it's between 9 & 10 in the morning.
broad moonlight, baroque beetles rear up
on hobnailed legs
& strain to hear the songbirds snoring
i'd like to meet up with that german couple with a cottage in the forest
but i'm so far away from here
instead i get happiness from rolling news
& the majesty of a democratic media.
straight up. i always tell the truth.
if only i wasn't locked in your garden shed
with clouds streaming up through the burning earth.
may i call you julie?
that was your name in the old days
when i was in love with a girl in an infinite
series of mirrors called only "the agent."
other names for the herb
include dr blue's surgery.
i do have something i need to tell you:
though entirely real the passing of time
is also absolutely unreal.
you'll understand though you'll wonder why i'm still thinking the same thoughts
i failed to think when i called the police & asked for a pizza.
as i said, i've been oh experiencing melancholia.
& i don't have a passport anymore
