good news
i have written you another poem

is it –
don’t worry
it’s VERY long and EXTREMELY unfinished

oh good
it’s about what if a woman saw another woman take her coat off
and it’s 9000 lines

wow
it’s so great that i can still write when i’m high and it doesn’t affect my work

 

I call even my Cat Sister in the Fraternity of universal Nature
do you
Owls I respect
Jack Asses I love

that’s
okay
are you going to just list all of the animals you like
Alderman & Hogs, Bishops & Royston Crows are my Cousins
at least by Courtesy
But Kings, Wolves, Tygers, Generals, Ministers, & Hyaenas, I renounce them all

okay
okay I’ll be sure to remember that
a lime tree can be a prison you know
I’m sure it can
if your friends go take a walk and they make you stay behind at a lime tree and they get to go on a walk and you don’t get to go
then that lime tree is really a prison
isn’t it

I suppose it does
especially if that friend is Charles Lamb
which I would never make Charles Lamb sit under a lime tree if I wanted to go walking and he couldn’t
but I guess that’s why neither kind of Lambs are my friends

 

WAKE UP
what
GET UP GET UP
what is it
LAST NIGHT I WENT TO PARADISE IN A DREAM
people go to a lot of places in dreams
NAY BUT LISTEN
I CAN PROVE IT

how
I HAVE A FLOWER
OHO
SUDDENLY WE’RE NOT SO SKEPTICAL, ARE WE

 

are you still up
can i read my poem to you

that depends
is it full of
i don’t know
melted time and upside-down architecture and sweating convicts
i don’t know how to answer that question
like okay
most time is upside down
and eventually all architecture melts when the Abyssinian maid plays the enchanted lute
i don’t really see how you can put that on me
