Buried 66 feet beneath the backyard swimming pool is the biggest deposit of dinosaur bones that civilization will never see
Losing all my money on an eight-legged horse I turn instead to be hypnotized by the woman with the rose on her neck and the Minotaur in her hair. There’s a cloud leopard out her kitchen window. Y stands for walking in the sky and the dogs are barking at the rain. Her eyes are like the clenched fist meme as she waits at the bus stop on the Scottish moor and everything is backwards so that’s her room. I have nothing to pay her with. But she doesn’t seem to mind. We
are always walking above undiscovered treasure. She throws a lasso and disappears. The 8 Ward bus pulls up, hissing and I get in, still broke.
I ran over a bunny
with my dad’s lawn
mower. broke its legs
I cut the engine.
grabbed the shovel.
made a shadow
over the bunny.
But I couldn’t
smash its brains out
I just went back to mowing my dad’s lawn
like a worthless asshole
I pressed the button to turn on the tv
Then it was on
We sat on the worn-out blue recliners
The smoke hung blue in the ping-pong room
The rusted blue refrigerator on the porch was broken
The screen on the door was torn and the spring broken
And it was spring
And it was blue
And the tv was on
And I could feel in the place where my other hand used to be
A lion roared.
