3 cc's of separation…
(a carbon copy, of a carbon copy, of a carbon copy…)

10 cc's of scarified debris
caused by generations
of societal neglect,

20 cc's of excoriation
because bad eye sight
is hereditary,

30 cc's of self-denial and interminable hatred
because good body image
is only possessed by the thin and the meek;

10 cc's of self doubt and complacency
20 cc's of separation from truth
30 cc's of exculpation;
self-diagnosed and
medicated with;

one hundred ccs of unconditional love
two hundred ccs of mommy I Need You
three hundred ccs of FAMilial OBLIGATION!!!!!!

and the whole world,
lives to breed;

seeks out love,
to avoid the pain;

does anything at all
to avoid -- self.

3 cc's of separation
and we all . . . fall . . . down.

it's 20 ccs
injected at arm's length
into the self-loathing, self-doubting part of the soul;

it's 50 ccs
forcibly administered
just above the abdomen, to a place surrounded by a

it's 100 more ccs
vialed and loaded
to swordplay with truth and moral turpitude;

it's a shot of "god knows what" cc's
to avoid responsibility,
obliterate accountability,
and remain anonymous for species to come;

it's the raining down of cc's
(by the freakin' buckets),
to ensure escapability.
Come on, why buck the trend?

and we all . . . Fall . . . DOWN --

one generation
of separation

at a time.

once again
impressed with the quality and quantity of frenetic performance-style pieces here lately… this reads part fire and brimstone vision, and part dystopian manifesto…

a sad disintegration passionately expressed. thanks for sharing.
