back in amerika...and getting ready to leave again

exhaustive multi-tracking fashion show regret
creeps in the midst of overwhelming loose

no word scratch nothing what so ever deep
in shameful clapboard senility
decay's arbitrary demarcation

and there are several ways
backing indoctrination
skip indeed
fate into another narrative condition
another body referent lacking
thematize rendition

you are my body strange walking away
your husk a skull
your song an echo
infinite in tide
a window that alters time
possessed by language
intensified by account stutters
missing preconditions
bound implicitly
to your breaking arm
