that threw you in the river
on and on the grayshattered thud
or else in bars countrywestern
manacled biscuits and gravy
ramshackly o tremble into
a chainlinked scene doglike
navy blue midnight machiney
plays hank williams skipping
shitfitting like outrageous cramps
an armor unmanifested unbirthed
ungirthed unfeltfor underestimated
cruelty goes like this do de do
da de de do
petrified know
what's giving under like knees
you've felt in backyards
of your dreams mathilda
