Veiled – Tom Kane

Sweet creek of isolation, breathe in deep
Exhale the poison of false hope, the model
The one who sold you, now reappears, success bleeding upon us all
Copy the copy, chic plastique imprinted on sacred scrolls
Unraveling the mystery of life, selling the struggle that infects us all
Bargain bin persona, nouveau riche beliefs
Indebted to the experience, care given only to the scheme

stick to the script of conformist originality
lacking conviction,

Generation Kill Chic – Mika Hrejsa

a black sun beats down

cracked meth pipes under boots

acrid bubbles of opossum roadkill pop

indiana’s pretty this time of year

 

this teen keeps making others

grab him by his

curled devil horns – dealers like

feeling the scales they just

ripped outta his head one day like they were

full metal jackets shredding apart

fist-wide hole blown out

bloodfucked across bathwater

Mornings are Weird – Maté Jarai

Identifying with Whale Sharks

 

It’s only 11:19
It’s raining again
I’m gone
In danger of becoming endangered
“Ladies and Gentlemen…”
I’m going by way
of the whale shark
cut up in a dark store room
of a supply ship off the
coast of Hong Kong
“Go down slow…”
Scattered parts of me
drift in the depths
each of them alone
terrified but determined
to come together again
form a force ready to fight back
whale shark wars
they find a way to go on land
a reverse submarine
they make soup out of us all
dominate us all
“I’ll never wake up
in a good mood again…”
like the parts of me
that remain
waiting patiently
to find each other
and resume
the fight.

Fire Maiden – Karina Bush

KARMA MAN

Living my karma
Via you

I asked to be degenerate
And life brought

Your constant dissolution

I chose my

Innate ability to harm myself

Can learn every lesson but this selfish
Drive to have the spectrum

Of intense

Like karma

My punishment memory
Is long

When your time comes
Don’t cry for sympathy
You picked first

You were fully grown
You entered our vow to
Execute sufficient misery
