beauty just took
a sky dive into ugliness
and i found myself
shivering on the cliff
laughing into the fog.
she acts as though her mind
can't touch her fingers
and nothing will ever create itself just for the hell of it
and i just laugh and i just shout and
wonder why people don't laugh too loud anymore.
it's a sin
and i'm crawling under my skin
and she's louder than bombs
she can't hold in her opinions
so let them shout their two cents
into the world.
let the pennies scatter
all over this mezzanine floor
blue like panama
you shreiked
and you were a screaming book never stopping
