lewd gesture here
by J. D. Nelson
I'm the red kid
in the striped shirt.
I've been living
out of a stolen suitcase
& eating meat
of questionable quality
from the golden ashcans
of our fair metropolis.

I reek of urine,
most of it my own,
& I've taken up
the strange hobby
of eating bricks.

my fascination with knives
is none of your business.

I don't believe in
behaving like an animal,
sucking & fucking & picking nits.
I am the sum of God,
a fantastic being from the edge
of the constantly expanding
natural universe.

I speak Chinese
& I bowl with gas giants
on Saturdays.

we'll enjoy
your stringy rib meat
as we smear ourselves
with filth & blood & vomit,
all in the name of civility.
