Drinking Water

I know about this really great product…
it’s called I DON’T KNOW

and the tremor of the knee
it’s connected to something else
what is it bothering you?
I DON’T KNOW

he posted a photograph
some monster chopped
a baby elephant’s face in half
I caught my palms
catching my face in gasps

go and shake
if you want
if you must

the soreness from the day
I asked is such work even necessary?
they sent me off
I set off on a new route
you’ve got some attitude
NO I DON’T

hello, foot pain
you were at that party
the other night, weren’t you?
okay strained so so
couldn’t squeeze much more
joy out of life once
the zombie plague finally hit
like in the movies
like on TV
like the morning papers
like the news coming
ringing a bell

you must think you’re so great
that’s the first mistake you make

images flash in the mind
as if the mind were made for that
the blind man’s insistence
to date a model
all his friends would lie to him
she’s beautiful, a looker
“yeah, aren’t ya jealous?” he’d say
they’d roll their eyes
like they were ready
to die
and ascertain stumbling around
in front yards as zombies
in eighties movies
which you can check on IMDB

losing your soul is another way of
saying that you even
have one to lose

losing your soul is another way of
saying sensitivity is lost

lost on ya
chewed up flannel long sleeve
grieve
good grief
there’s an end in sight to such needs
in flight
so naive
grass colored green
don’t be such a skeeze
please
home grown
home schooled freak
home alone prone
to tweak a sneak peek
but the plastic bleeds

into the water

you’re drinking that water
