JESUS PIZZA SAVES.

your chest is a game show with 100 nipples
your thighs are a temple of questions
I will never answer

my armpits are an odd symphony
that mumble lunar rhapsody

amorous beavers covet your wooden shoes
and I would like to see you walking barefoot
in a glass factory

death is a skateboard without surprise

the president is masturbating in front of the public library
and I hate to be the bearer of fake news
but all the pages of history have been glued shut
and the law books are pleading the fifth

America, waving behind your striped and starry mask
you cannot erase memory

I cannot recall the perfect body of your mind
or the perfect wisdom of your heart
and there's something heartbreaking about a harmonica
doing blue somersaults in your ear

electric sheep litigate the future with artificial intelligence
using smart phones on speed dial

I can hear the icebergs melting in your drink

last call, lover

what's your
poison?
