Random Poem:

t.v. land
DeformedLion

i want to fuck myself in the Face
 1
and say goodnight,
 2
 
 
to you in my head and outside of it
 3
like a  barmeister
 4
who wipes things off with a rag.
 5
 
 
and tongues out lies, and spills out
 6
words and herds the others in again,
 7
spouts out period, shouts out
 8
I LOVE YOU like some fuckwit
 9
on a t.v. show and smokes a cone
 10
later on, and
 11
 
 
idontknow- maybe goes to the toilet
 12
and chucks a piss or something,
 13
he splits peas with a butter knife.
 14
i look at him in the mirrror of
 15
a softer thing, and outside of me
 16
the chairs legs will wilt like
 17
flowers and the police will
 18
come to arrest me for burning down
 19
my sock draw...because i think
 20
you need shoes on when you
 21
want to want to take them back off again. smiley face. wink wink/i want to take them off with you
 22
and laugh at the dimples i discover on
 23
your discoverables and then
 24
pop questions at you like
 25
pinball pill wits.
 26
 
 
don't know nothing but t.v. dough,
 27
knead it out and stretch it over my face
 28
like dexter in the credits,
 29
 
 
and then i blink and it gets caught inside
 30
my eyes and then all i see is the aroma
 31
of a good plot and the firm sell of dialogue
 32
as it whispers in my tragedy of an ear:
 33
 
 
i only have one. the other is out there
 34
listening for you.
 35
