sequence and watermelons because its hot out

by Matthew Sharp

If you can watch t.v.
then you can learn to read
if you can learn to read
then you can learn the equations
if you can learn the math
then you can learn the sequence
solve the equations and create your own
until they create themselves
like opening an eyelid
to wave at ancestrial growth

disposal of its body
doesnt stop it
it speeds it up
scattered across it
i spilled my drink
