Current status: dominating life, new
Paraframe knives, darling wives and
Date nights, memories of haunted men,
All kinds of wars, shopping, marriage
In Dreamland, Ohio: LOVE it. This.
Neighborhood. Is. The. Freaking. Best.
Their progress West was slow, fraught
With a neo-violence never seen before:
Bloodlet the top of his left arm, knife
A cheap Chinese metal but the tip held:
Bite down on this beer-donut, that’s
How we share our new badness up in here.
How we do leadership: still some pre-
Black Friday sales to hit and bottles
To pop, so remember to wear your camo-
OSU cap to the new BBQ joint (looks
AMAZING) and to tweet more photos of
Fam-versus-dog backyard hockey games.
Parallel to us, ghosting back home,
They speak in authentic accents about
Curating a selection of artisanal
Accessories we need for the home, about
Helping us to refine our false flag
Inclinations with a suburban glamour:
To access your residence of impermanence,
Do you really need a fifth bicycle?
Passionate Clevelanders of the wine-
Drinking, slipper-wearing variety
Listen only to the country that makes
You hold your breath: as a streak
Runner married to a sort-of-runner,
You worship the photography of the
Neue Sachlichkeit and demand they stop
Calling them boots on the ground: hey,
Welcome to our side of the tracks, enjoy.
