The World Is Burning My Dick Off

 

The world is burning my dick off!

 

It’s too much

most times, goddamn it!

It’s too much!

 

but then I see she’s painted her fingernails

dark blue

and remember

how she can’t fall asleep

without the fan on

just like I can’t fall asleep

 

I can’t fall asleep that way too!

 

she saves spiders!

 

and we share coleslaw

that has apples in it

for some reason

 

or if not apples

at the very least

something similar

that is apple-based

 

while together we wonder

why anyone would mix apples

with coleslaw

 

to begin with

 

these combinations

which occur daily

they seem most times

 

to be inspired by madness!

 

they seem at most times

at the very least to be

 

unabridged-ly

at all times

insane!

 

the other day I realized

that I’m already older

than Kafka

 

and that love is already

older than bugs

 

and that time is a microwave oven

with the button that says ‘popcorn’

meticulously/almost all the time

 

broken

 

you can’t shut the damn thing off!

everything is just everywhere!

everything pops!

 

love is older than bugs

and she saves spiders

 

are spiders technically bugs?

they always tend to ask

even though that’s not

the most appropriate question

 

the point is:

she saves love!

 

as if it were spiders

 

and I am saved by our

mutual confusion

with coleslaw

 

MEANWHILE:

all these things

in need of saving

 

bet their savings

on the avoidance

of straight jackets

 

while I continue………..

 

tumbling

between a not so subtle void

and her nail polish

as everything else

keeps popping

 

#ouch,asIn

 

This world is burning my dick off

 

but because tonight

her nail polish

is blue

and there’s still a chance

the neighbor’s dogs

will stop barking

and did I forget

to mention here

that her nail

polish is

blue?!

 

maybe I’ll be ok
