Yes I know
cowork

Found on my hard drive.

As you speak
 1
I am getting up
 2
off this patio
 3
furniture chair
 4
of this fu-fu café
 5
dropping down cash
 6
to cover everything
 7
so I can escape;
 8
(but only in my mind.)
 9
 
 
You explain the world,
 10
Your gender right
 11
My gender wrong
 12
using my father’s
 13
father’s father and
 14
anything I say
 15
or don’t say.
 16
(My minds past the door
 17
Turning right)
 18
 
 
I’m setting quite
 19
You attack my father
 20
But you're like my father
 21
You have the tattoos,
 22
the superiority,
 23
the big truths;
 24
all you need now
 25
is a big belt buckle
 26
and military jacket
 27
around your fat ass.  
 28
 
 
(I’m getting on a bus
 29
Going to the beach
 30
With fresh air and
 31
Half naked beauties.)
 32
………Yes, I know.
