Collar 2:

 

The Six Million Dollar Man’s Bulge

 

red jumpsuits

combined with the fact

that we’ve all just crawled

out of tequila

 

can cause our collected junk

to look like Bigfoot

 

it can cause our collected junk

to perform feats of pure bravery

which are ignored by the general public

 

because these feats are blurry

and performed while hidden

deep inside your woods

 

and just because these feats

may not get a pat on the back

from Ryan Seacrest and then hand gestured

over to be ball-stroked by a panel

of washed up judges

 

that doesn’t mean they’re not feats

cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha Darling!

they’re still feats!

 

feats which leave footprints!

 

noble footprints of love!

 

there’ve been plenty of songs

written about this

 

buildings have been built

to such things

 

rings exchanged

 

monuments erected

 

but that doesn’t change

the fact that last night

while we slept

your face

against mine

 

the goddamn corporations were

casually at work

assimilating everything shaped

like a building

 

buying up

all the monuments like they were

the goddamn sky

purchasing clouds

 

maybe money can’t buy happiness

but it sure as fuck can buy

red jumpsuits

& yr own sound effects

 

it sure as fuck can buy governments

and erase science

 

it sure as fuck can turn the world

into a Pena Co-lat-a

 

and any hope we have

of treading tequila

into wet booze-tread-gulping

sharks

 

the odds are a closed taco store

that only random mood rings

make it to shore

 

but as long as we’re here

 

do you want to go to the movies

with me?

because I want to go to the movies

with you
