The city does spring cleaning
trash-bag smock wearin urban vermin
can’t even lift bootstraps high enough to
orbit limestone hilltop where suits sit
earn penchants in mucous making
year long slobber-fest upside the head
makes you wonder how concrete got to
feeling so starry-eyed princess story
upside the head like streetside pillows
muh muh make me blanket
muh muh mold me new mold
this is all a novel piece of music
lacuna movements whispering
don’t look here don’t look here
don’t look here please don’t look here.
