Sing Happy Birthday Every Time You Wash Your Hands

Torture is knowing
what you really are

There is a garden where
scars are the fertilizer and
roses are serial
killers and trapped
water harvests this
new strain of
whatever it is
that ails
you

Iím taking the advice
of fools

These phrases ainít
gonna save you

These phrases ainít
what they used
to be

These phases just
had a baby and it
looks just like
you

Solipsism rears it
beautiful phallus once
again and Iím into
it because Iím just
kind of finding out
about it
now

and this is where
I leave you, because
Iím kind of a
sonofabitch,
too
