Fort Vending Machine: a poem in four collars

 

dedicated to The Six Million Dollar Man and Vladimir Mayakovsky

 

 

Collar 1:

 

eyebrow to eyebrow

 

today I saw the whole world bleeding real jobs

and

today I saw a giraffe penis

fully staffed

 

I saw both things

 

for the first time

 

side by side

 

thumb-wrestling

………infinity

 

sweating wet serum

 

cracking safes

in dried blood

 

today

 

more people were killed by wheelbarrows

then killed by Madonna

 

but that’s only because

wheelbarrows never sleep

and Madonna didn’t get out of bed

until noon

 

eyebrow to eyebrow

 

we are the generation

that walks around with

black eyes

while pretending

like champs

that we dodged

the punch

 

the only things that scares us more

than eating shit pies at 12:30

is the goddamn thought

of skipping lunch

 

we are an eyebrow

stalked by an eyebrow

 

we are the facial hair

in denial of the face

 

pudding

it’s a goddamn crazy

invention

 

like getting stuck in

a traffic jam caused

by a baseball game

 

or breathing

 

or love
