Chairless & Staging Without Coffee: ђ

-b.

 

 

The coffee sits

dry and naked

-sincerely

because I waste

the privilege to regard

sleep

and car accidents

are possible

not because I’m tired

but because

they’re beautiful

 

I’ve been driving all night

passing state lines

and forgetting

to write and send

thank you letters

to billboards that keep

this house of a country

prejudice

and I’m ignoring

the political stance

of exit signs

that broadcast

and I’m walking out

I’m done with this whorehouse

radio’s on

and its political

like a shitstorm

and I’m starving

to calm the hell down

because guns and prejudice

are bandwagon and sexually arouses

-it rapes my attention

 

now-

radio’s off

and the rapist

-used a condom

and my thoughts

-unchanged

but my attention

wears a rape stain

-like shotgun weddings

-the bride wearing anything

but white

 

its been a long day

and the sky begins to burn

a republican red

this morning
