This Is Lame, I Know

2009-04-03

Everything is metal

Everything is

Heavy and

Dull and

Scratched

.

Everything runs on tracks

Sparking smoking trains

Exploding chains

.

When I look at the sky

I see a great big gash

Where all the clouds look anxiously

I told them they might get sucked in

If they misbehaved

.

It keeps raining in my shoes

I will hang a Vorticist painting over the gash

And the clouds will stop crying
