when the ducklings died
her mother thought of me
she said and my "smile"

melissa's not sleeping she's hooked
what a miracle drug coffee
we've discussed flaubert half a xanax

the sun rises softly above fluttering eyelids
insane laughter outdoors drunkards
rolling tired sags home pissing a carnival in pothole pants

my legs are shaky i'm tired of booze and sleeping
it's been returning that like liking someone
i need a shave body odor disturbs she gonna kiss me

my imaginary comrade maximus dwarf
casts awkward glances flickers spells on the wall
the old television show is going steady
