so we were thinking about drinking forties all day and
waiting for the rapture
the way in which communism is and is not like a
never ending recognition scene
that is not confirmed because motherfuckers have
been in the street and not in a meeting
a string of crimes
dotted like notes on a score
a confused melody
a disorderly song
a low rumbling
do you want to feel how it feels?
