“Plug your ears, mask your fears.
Something weird’s going down...”

atavistic activism with rapacious symbolism,
check out the big ass words,
hipster scripture,
neologism. (mhm)

great barrier reefer,
cheaper pleasure seeker breathers,
continents of assonance
through neoliberal speakers:
truthful treble beveled,
sloping settlement of metal petals,
flowering descension—
with gentrifying stencils.

krylon capsized,
freedom fries,
file Franco, Francisco skies
belie compassioned eyes.

fortified morticians practice omnipotent contradictions,
dissection delighting the scalpel,
carving same rhythms,
same snare reverb
as beat drops
on the populace.

octopus metropolis,
mollusk rock under the watcher’s kiss,
ocean spray,
paternal breeze,
Winston’s glass beneath the frieze,

jury, hurry so the top you can appease.

recycle please.

“Listen or I’ll kill ya!”

anachronistic and ballistic roach tenements (shit...)
hellbent on fortifying dopamine
the playback:
Algerian hostage standoff,
you know that boom boom bap, (mhm)
selling copyrights to fat cat music video cataracts.

special: Zealotry, hold the cheese.
Anne Coulter’s knees freeze buckle, (no tomatoes)
MSNBC chuckle,

(ha) they say there’s a demographic problem (shit...)
in the basement,
face it.
new receiver in that room,
Direct TV been free basing:
basic package
buy one get one.

Mordecai and Ahmed
trade guns,
dual-semitic mushrooms,
Gaza tripping just for fun.

free of mind, brush, pen,
overseer has been
on his MIDI making beats,
his controller unhinged,
simpleton script: “legit”.
flip it:
the bird, the sample.
remixing a whip and a chain as examples and models to follow.
diction becomes hollow
with this new throttled meaning,
sorrow to believing
root of word ain’t rolled and smoked for deceiving

but yeah, I hit that,
and nervous breakdowns of my personal syntax elapsed.
In fact,
I found creativity in seeing what I lacked.

“That was heavy man. Let’s have another one.
Encore, encore, encore....”
