Random Poem:


newborns awash in the river of period blood
venomous maternal coddle, the introductory head wound
the soft womb of the megaserpent
fluid giants with their beaks piercing the clouds
marching to the toll of the imperial orchestra
now in your 20s, you failure, falling asleep.
the tv is on, "i got hit by the big trucks and ken nugent gave me the big bucks"
you have a dream, something about futuristic panda bears with machine guns for arms besieging japanese sky villages
