[If the fall apart happens.]

In order not to follow

continual human involvement strands

my loose time political

covers my scalp.

In particular the traffic jams

that hover over

I don’t mean to get my hair

all over your pharmacy.

with pieces nobody recognizes.

I drink eleven hand grenades

to shed dead tears. To feel


This is not where I leave you.
