. The Movie

"The movie will begin in 5 moments"
The mindless voice announced
All those unseated, will await the next show

We filed slowly, languidly into the hall
The auditorium was vast and silent
As we seated and were darkened, the voice continued

The program for this vening is not new
You have seen this entertainment thru and thru
You've seen your birth, your life and death
You might recall all of the rest
Did you have a good world when you died?
E nough to base a movie on?

I'm getting out of here!
Where're you going?
To the other side of the morning
Please don't chase the clouds pagodas

Her cunt gripped him like a warm friendly hand
It's all right, all your friends are here
When can I meet them?
After you've eaten
I'm not hungry
Oh, we meant beaten
Silver stream, silvery scream
Oooooh, impossible concentration

 

. Curses, Invocations

Curses, Invocations
Weird bate-headed mongrels
I keep expecting one of you to rise
Large buxom obese queen
Garden hogs and cunt veterans
Quaint cabbage saints
Shit hoarders and individualists
Drag strip officials

Tight lipped losers and
Lustful fuck salesman
My militant dandies
All strange orders of monsters
Hot on the tail of the woodvine
We welcome you to our procession

Here come the Comedians
look at them smile
Watch them dance an Indian mile
Look at them gesture
How aplomb
So to gesture everyone

Words dissemble
Words be quick
Words resemble walking sticks
Plant them they will grow
Watch them waver so
I'll always be a word man
Better then a bird man
