Neon Carrot

Neon Carrot

 

in the vegetable garden

of this evening’s cracked sanity

there’s something wrong with these

goddamned carrots!

 

the local rabbits who subsist on such things

have grown talk shows on their knee caps

and their piss has turned the color

of Jay Leno’s chin

 

a humorless shade of pink marshmallows

and overpriced car wax

 

the Experts suggest Pesticides

 

and the Pesticides suggest Experts

 

which leads me to believe it’s all just

one big con job and the fucking thin skins

are in on this thing together

 

so instead of fumigating between hillsides

which at this point

would be futile

I grab another notebook

and start over

 

The air smells like robot shadows

and laundry mat solar flares

 

as I write something down about the air

smelling like robot shadows and laundry mats

 

and try my best to avoid eye contact

with these goddamn radioactive carrots

 

that have taken over

too much

almost everything

that’s been left

 

in our ground
