Do not send
Me
Your address
Do not pretend
I know
Where this will lead
I am stronger than the previous
Without cancellation
But without notice
I have an idea for you
That may grow out of control
But you will like it
Then we may change
And another merry wanderer
Will find us together
How solemn to be bewitched
How wondrous to be alone
I cannot complete it
Distress makes a tone
It is sound off sound on again
And the cycle is Hertzian
In knowledge we may find something
Little, something
Big
But don’t bother settling
Unless you have,
Don’t bother
None of it adds up
When the arrows point at each other
But brothers know some things
I don’t care where it ends up
In the garbage is fine with me
But melt the planet while you’re at it, please
Discordant residue of somnolence
Send me an easier day job
I beg of you, send me something easy
I can do it
I can’t do it
I won’t remember who I am
Then to the nurse
And turn around
And the smile on her face
I wonder why you showed up
When I did not
And there is my curse, waiting for me outside
Without knowledge
I can resist temptation
But with success, I crave both
Have a heart, and let go
It won’t kill you
But when it does…
