Random Poem:

in the snow

he says girl der ner ner ner you'll
be a ma-aan soon. blah blah, blah blah.
so crystal sky lights up, monolith
frowns at big ball in sun mits
blowing up black
balloon, float shrapnel, float!
  hers, to his.
that the whorl of urine meets the
same with more splash than slide,
kind of liquid stream:
azure. meaning white clouds
razed vermillion, sky--
outie, skin cut, old
and febrile...vericose
veins dot across your eyes,
                            mine too.
  here are the his. the his
  is smiling at such
  awkward possesion.
  skirts and trousers.
the sun gets fumbled - drunk stars -
darkness. darkness. oh hail body,
oh hail boy!
   in the snow.
