lets write to the gibberish
the songs that make no sense
lets drink to whore houses
the songs that make no sense
let’s eat to the memories
the songs that are too short

let’s read the scribbles
each beginning sentence capitalized
let’s read to the gossip
each whisper turning eyes
let’s read to nothing chairs
each hemmed leg coughing bored

let’s blow eggs hollow
hallow eggs of tombs
let’s wine the dining moment
wedding out the feast in barrels
let’s sleep rooftop stars
t.v antenna nothingness

the songs that make no sense
the songs that make no sense
the songs that are too short
each hemmed leg coughing bored
