FOR MY SAKE, I COULD GIVE TWO SHITS ABOUT YOUR SAKE
I am looming in a heart-shaped tunnel made of woven branches,
isolated from a world sprawling with grievances & palm tree bankrolls.
Birthed from the gutter. A growth in the parallels of partying cornrows.
It’s where the farmer’s broken hand is the dignity of the labor movement.
The garter snakes are usually freed. It’s a common courtesy,
like making my inpatient repertoire into humor that zaps across the tabletops.
Have a cup of Death Wish & listen to The Chariot — you’ll have a breakthrough
in “Phenomenology of Spirit”. It will encourage hands to knead the deep soil.
