we travel
empty roads, beer-drunk,
squashing bluebirds,
waiting to lie down
among the trees, I am no longer vertical
close the garage, engine running
or was it, heads in ovens today
I can never remember certain details
and the others—
scream at me during the night,
pour out of my pores, and I wake
drenched in sweat

there are so many rules today
nonsense and such,
and I simply, no longer
give a fuck

Words, love them! Have some? Leave them.
