>there were bells on the hill but I never heard them …

dying in a cesspool of forbidden shit

I hate forbidden shit

It reminds me of the apples I ate when I was non-cancerous

the smell of the death-ward is kinda nice

it reminds me of tricycles

no I never heard them at all ‘ til there was …

a festering silence overcomes this habitat

and it ain’t a gerbil cage, baby

and there was music, and wonderful roses, they tell me …

always wondered who the fuck “they” were

if jesus lived in an underwear drawer

then the words would come out sweeter

If Gita lived in my mouth

then surgery would be cleaner

I still wish I was there with Auntie May

drinking her dirt cider

and hoping for redemption

  12. >Thank you Marian.Pamela

  13. >The Jesus and Gita observations are priceless. I hadn't picked up on the "till there was you" connection, but that adds a whole other brilliant dimension. Tell Rall the Pope doesn't scare me (as long as he stays in Rome).
