What a letdown. The Paranoia of Semiotics or the Semiotics of Paranoia
Made you make something of made things. It seemed unmade to you
For a moment there at least. One possible girl followed swiftly by another,
Ergo man. Better make sure just in case. Make a cake. What are the things
You make? Conservative ephemera? Or should I say creative economics?
Hydroponics makes me feel good but isn't really accurate. I fear the former.
A sign every year brings me ever closer to terrified ownership of a home
And a shotgun versus the system. Liking too many people to fit more in.
Russians would say I love you so I'm leaving. A disembodied judgment
Of merciless code is proof I care. We're not in Russia though so mine is
Because I found it where you left it lying around. Now I can say I made it.
That's how we do things here. I'm industrious and that's my final offer
Or next-to-last if you'll do better. What I really want is negotiation
About next steps. How to make decisions when there's nothing to decide,
Not yet. I don't want to see both sides, when one is enough for now. Just
Minutes longer and the world goes on competently that I made for real.
Please keep it safe with my autograph on the panorama. I worry for
Some reason seeing, because the world is so very good and my eyes clear.
*Night and Different Night*
Did I have an orgasm---
three---do you go to church---what---do you know anything
about stocks---sort of---could I ease the biting next time---
no. Your best friend has found someone and your back
is breaking out. You bought a small house I want to have
sex in Pennsylvania. That dangling plug may be a hazard
of some kind and if I didn't need your mouth,
I'd tape it shut.
