I Know Some Things



is not

in vogue,

nor am I


unless I’ve

attempted to

hang myself

with a thread

of humanity



I rather rip

a hole through

the cosmos

with my scorn,

so Pluto will

remember me


And please,

none of that

burning business



what’s wrong

with a little dirt

in your face?

I like organic


“Pile it high,”

I’ll say


That way

my lonely friends

won’t come


for my bones,

and Martians

can still

piss on me
