live long

that little dog you liked
won the Westminster Abbey
and the Cardassians are fighting
with that girl Amber
we went to High-school with..
I think she made a porn tape.
she might’ve fucked the the last one
right on this marble counter.
I know I did.
I broke a damn nail
digging into the stone.
phewww BUT the fruits of our labor!
though when I tap now it’s uneven.
you know, tap, tap, thunk, tap
a lack of symmetry in sound waves
is almost as bad
as this sludge in our lungs.
it’s all the smoke you know
we practically blow it out
of every orifice.
I mean, do hear the muffled guffaws?
man, cause my eardrums are swelling.
soon we’ll all clock into
work via facebook.
can you imagine?

  1. Just putting everything out there lol, so many layers addressed in this piece. Are we really that bad, and no I cant imagine clocking into work through facebook.


      1. I feel like with all the social media sharing every ounce of life with everyone everything is just displayed for someone to feel some type of way about it, and I kinda saw that aspect in your poem. Tried to fit that comment in.

  2. My favorite line: I think she made a porn tape.

    I love when poetry includes sentences or phrases that feel like real language. Balances well with the parts that are more “poetic”.
