goodbye alex!
unknown

a cough in the hallway,
 1
rather, a bullet. (i'd rather.)
 2
some-body wants me to die.
 3
i have thought about murder
 4
within and without.
 5
i have been pimped out, scratched
 6
marked like a tree.
 7
i have fucked for drugs
 8
for someone else.
 9
i have criticized somebody's sex
 10
before an audience.
 11
 
 
wes made love to me
 12
eyes embracing
 13
and then stole from my purse.
 14
joey fucked me
 15
and made a small werewolf
 16
in the crack
 17
i do not understand the maths.
 18
i have attended an animal orgy.
 19
 
 
i have abandoned my lover
 20
for thieves, sluts, pretenders.
 21
they all drive drunk.
 22
kyle calls it a rite of passage
 23
kyle deserves to die.
 24
and when he does i will laugh.
 25
two living arrows point down my throat
 26
in the early hours
 27
they fight over me, they tricked me.
 28
get you down real low
 29
then strike. a happy girl is a hard girl
 30
get you easy.
 31
by proximity, joey wins.
 32
wesley falls asleep, defeated.
 33
 
 
Arthur Tuggy, do you mind if I sit on your tombstone?
 34
I come to the cemetery to confront the life I am living.
 35
Typical.
 36
your wife beside you, isn't life funny?
 37
you can only possess one thing at a time.
 38
its me and the birds
 39
and a damp sun lamp
 40
i hope the geese can feel my peace
 41
as i approach with acceptance
 42
the end of my life.
 43
a four devil party has emptied me of my humanity.
 44
satan made us magnets in the loins.
 45
all of us terribly frightened, wishing to be invisible.
 46
what a burden it is to be seen by eyes.
 47
spied on, watched from inside the mind.
 48
i will now say a prayer to whoever is listening.
 49
i will ask for nothing.
