dinosaur replacements

I look at you
the way
the moon
looks at the earth

change is in the air
and putting me in the gutter

car alarms in this lot
are motherfuckers
that’s the word I’m using, sorry
check me out
I am locking my door now
on top of locking my door
I am turning on this
noisy ass shit
to deter criminals
and undesirables (transients) from
interfering with my shit
while I go ten feet away
to the register to
make my coffee purchase
see you in a minute
I’ll be right back with
my keychain and attached remote
to deactive that which is
wounding your ear drum
because god knows
flies and other small insects
and the wind and the rays
of the sun
will be setting the motherfucker off
just the way you like it

bless her
god bless her
she bless god
she say
it’s a dead one
a dead god
she own a goat
she catch the fish
from a boat
sip drink through straw
she give you a call
she have sex dream
seductive sedative
sedate so great
perfect mind state
body doll
human let the air out
it’s fresh, it’s flesh
she is blessed
by the hollow words
she learns
to embrace emptiness
he goes out
looking for a fight
we just might
that’s tight
that’s air tight
that’s alright
don’t staircase yourself
don’t stare
don’t dive from plane
or hang stretched
from hooks
don’t be a salesman
or crook
don’t use any more
don’ts in your vocab
they say
can do
can do
it’s their philosophy
all based around
customer service
he chimes in
“we’re interested in
other philosophies too”
he sees a recognizeable character
he keeps his
mouth shut
he checks the time
studioiusly
he is ready
is not ready
not quite
is glued to the screen
welded nailed down
tied down
held up
stuck
says things that
go too far
touches weak areas
uses one wrong word
“you’re out of touch”
not meaning it
but someone else says
“that’s not funny”
“well” he says
“meant not to say that in
seriousness. I’m out of touch.
we’re all out of touch in a way.
I mean, this is the information
society. just because we didn’t
see this thing they just showed
five years ago, it doesn’t mean anything.
there’s just so much out there,
there’s bound to be something
we’re not gonna catch…
starlight itself is old”
they like to
touch
a lot of them have
car keys
they throw them down
whereever they decide to land

he wants to land the plane
do you want him
to land the plane?
are you flying high?
these questions you
must answer
go behind the wall
and answer
fill out the ballot
in your mind
pray to yourself
like you’ve never
prayed to god before
are you ready?
nervous?
I bet you are
you accept gifts
but see them
as gimmicks
you are right to do this

we are dinosaur
replacements

how are we
doing so far?
you want an answer
don’t you?
