from LAST SONG:
Man in the kitchen said he adds his own minerals.
The facts make me sad. Backchannel me if interested.
Send it down the escalator. Boy, girl, twins, triplets.
And then, do you consider your life easy. It’s moon day.
Full thunder. Confess I got on the highway too soon.
Drop the sparkler in the empty tequila bottle to be safe.
When I remember death, I’m relieved. That’s the good news.
I found a bruise on my tattoo and thought it was rubbing off.
