Too eager to die we play hard
prove self or something
Truth serum drips through
leak on thought bubbles
Time after time after years, I don’t know
what time is what adulthood is
We are stuck swimming or drowning
at home in personal video games
Bart Simpson skateboards UFO police hummers
mom’s safe at home with the cats
Where can we keep running?
When can we slow down?
Catch the penultimate buzz of life never
so where we go it does not matter
Caress maniacally a carnival of bigotry and hate
losing our humanoid egg-heads
Becoming fans of darkness
black spiders spinning webs
Not to realize the magnitude of spirals spun
lost in jest a forever maze.
