corrosive scabbing of self indulgence

by Matthew Sharp

Social sterility probability drilling neurofilling facility spilling the cavity anatomy of gravity adding to the singularity its embarrasing what were cherishing doused in kerosene conspiring heresy a fire burns off the attire til the classless swims and splashes the ashes cover the earth the masses worth their weight in work as hard as it can empty handed mans plan to stand up and fall down destroying the very ground in which it was found pounded into dust the crust is just the begging the gears spinning into the bore shatters the core driven to want more than there is a bunch of kids preadolecent angst airplanes and tanks the banks the shores no more is it yours to squandor the safety of your plastic sky we hit our heads cripple and dead overfed and not willing to try to live or die a sustained component caught in the moment by moment the pages flipped through. burn the book, cease to continue.
