                                                it’s gonna be rad to be dead,

                                except for all the TV i’ll miss

 

supermarket carts incapable of traveling a straight line

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\\/\/\/\//\/\/\/\/\/\\\/\/the wobble of wheel requiring that you push/pull to avert a skyscraper of peas

 

                               the first time I tried to die i was making Eggs Benedict

i was about to crack the second egg when i cracked myself instead

 

                                    amniotic.ontology

 

                                                ^dead as perpetual motion that never walks a step dead making friends                          w/electrons & protons

                                                                                    it's gonna be rad

                                    unzip this flesh at the neck, kick it away

 

 every day the script posting a new song a new book a new movie i like that old video i love

 

            it's gonna be that person wishing Happy Birthday ten years later on my wall

 

                                            *all the life without blood

                                                pools at the chin*
