I Know Some Things

 

Melancholia

is not

in vogue,

nor am I

mentionable

unless I’ve

attempted to

hang myself

with a thread

of humanity

 

Personally,

I rather rip

a hole through

the cosmos

with my scorn,

so Pluto will

remember me

 

And please,

none of that

burning business

 

Besides,

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

digging

for my bones,

and Martians

can still

piss on me
