s o c i a l i t y

by Matthew Sharp

Back in front of the t.v.
placebo for hope
merely helping to cope
its directions rubbed in
like too many footsteps on the grass
mud trails of blinding fertility
sewing nothing
the entity rapes the garden

Again, you're awesome. What else can I tell you, man?

whew-- wildly cohesive-- the mix of natural and unnatural imagery is a strong potion. "sewing" up what is sown! The scenes a"re painted vividly--the "too many footsteps" and the "t.v" clearly there--and that looming "entity" --yes...that's what really gets me!
