Fasting

7 Dec

fast

Fasting

 

Tonight,

 

(scribbled words of the alphabet)

 

Falling in love is like blood work

 

Having your heart broken feels like

The twelve hours of fasting

Inevitably required

Before you realize you’ve been

Extracted from her life like a swift pop song

And the punch of the needle

Kicks you in the emotional nuts

 

(more letters from the alphabet)

 

Because love is like starving

 

And before you know it 12 hours

Turns into half a dozen years

And a half a dozen years turns into a really long synth solo

And the fasting goes on

And it goes on

And it goes on

 

And I’ve recently come to the conclusion

That shit man, of course it hurts

But what doesn’t these days?

So why am I not chewing by now?

I’m lonely and

The blood tests are over and

I’m starting to believe in it all again

Neo in the end of The Matrix subway style and shit and

I’m starving!

 

I mean, Proper Name, Curse Word, Christ!

I just downloaded Bon Jovi’s first album

That I haven’t listened to since a full grown mullet

And 9 and a half hours before the extinction of the cassette

 

And ipso-now-o I’m 15 again in a good way

The boom boxed days before I’d had my heart blue tank-topped

By damn near everything and still believed that love would save everything

and atrocities like Nickelback

And President Trump could never exist

 

Because, shit

 

I’m rambling again, and I’d promised myself

I wouldn’t start rambling

I promised myself in an orgy of hairspray and ghosts and mousse

That this one would be short

 

So,

 

alphabet words

alphabet words

alphabet, is that how

you spell mousse?

 

I mean, the point is:

 

Fasting + metaphor divided by the fact

That I can’t spell divided without spellcheck anymore

Sub-divided by the fact that

I’m an empty stomach

alphabet words

Tired of being empty

alphabet words

ending with:

alphabet words

 

Will you be my cheeseburger?
