Group Think

the first time

i saw a fight

i was horrified

the cracking

sound of bone

hitting bone

but the other

boys seemed

to love it.

i decided that

most people

have the brains

of flies and the

souls of dogs.

now iím sitting

on my patio

on a starry

summer night

quite happy

to be alone

all's well I guess

in the streets between

skyscrapers you'll find

nothing to save

and nowhere to run to

as winos ask you the

time and you wonder

where do winos need

to be at any given time?

youíll see a dead bird

on the sidewalk

looking up at you with

its dead black eye

and you say to it with

your dead black hole

of a mouth, what the

fuck happened to you?

watch my head explode

when i was 16

i put a rock through

the window of some

house just to hear

the sound of glass

shattering. the quiet

afterward was like

poking holes in the

clouds. then i ran like

hell for a little while

then i sat on a green

bench and stared

at the passing cars.

i could see the 

drivers and i tried

imagining what

they were about. this

guys a born-again

Christan. this guy's

a drunk who beats 

his wife. there's his

girlfriend. sitting there

watching the passing

cars. i was so messed

up in the head.

catch a star

itís 3 AM

and the rain

is falling.

thereís a punk

band called

Rainer Maria

on the radio.

i should turn

it off and listen

to the rain but

this girl and her

band are damn

good. iím 31

and still listen

to punk and itís

nice lying here

half-asleep and

listening to

Rainer Maria.

hours alone


she cuts her

forearms

with razors

and watches

the pretty

red blood fall

into the white

sink and tells

herself at

least she ainít

hooked on

meth or heroin

thank God.

Henry and June

the blonde dove in

and gave the brunette

a lick and she moaned

and groaned with her

big tits hanging out and

Anais Nin sat in a chair

watching them though

they invited her to join

looking more curious

than aroused but if the

girls didnít do it for her

well they sure as hell

did it for me.
