reverie

 

it smells like bees in here

someone says from behind you:

a cellophane mouth

an empty syringe

 

*

the screen at the front of the theater

is so white          so eggy            so clean

a rabbit’s tooth soaking in barbicide

 

*

Vaginal Feat         Atrocity Kitsch

Toilet Whore War   Vacation Vaccination

Hog Hallucination                        Shit Belly

No Beeping Allowed

 

just think: this is a mere sampling

of the cool bands you could start

 

*

my sewing kit has gone ballistic

my goiter is smelting

YOU ARE NOW LEAVING THE CITY OF D

REAMS

 

*

SEXY & SECURE ADULT SHOPPING

click here to feel sexy

click here to feel secure

 

*

you will have been crowned with milk

by the time the doctor shaves your brother

cradles him in the bare jaws

of a manatee skeleton

 

*

fuck williams sonoma

is out of truffle salts

 

meet me by the rusty peacock

beware of god

*

once had a gender crisis in j. crew

there was so much meat

 

ham hocks overflowed the dressing room

swelling like expandable water toys

 

i breathed through a sour punch straw

 

*

what does teratology

know about you

 

what do i
