words are animals 

attempts to communicate can be strained, morse code machines explode in fits of dots & dashes – she thinks in binary, a series of 1’s and 0’s – never-ending 
– all words are animals we shepherd into order – 
no calculator can calculate the amount of time we have spent thinking –

    HEY BABY BIRD—THOUGHTS ARE NOT INTERACTIVE DIALOGUES
    THAT KIND OF THINKING IS MORE LIKE LEMONADE
    REAL THINKING IS PAINTED BLACK AND TRAVELS IN PURE DARKNESS
    THE GUYS AT THE POOLHALL ARE CONVINCED THAT OVERLAPPING MENTAL MONOLOGUES CONSTITUTE
    THINKING
    REPETITIVE PHRASES OUT OF CONTEXT
    DISEMBODIED VOICES EVERYWHERE
    LIFE IS AN EXERCISE IN ISOLATION

        the laughter & the smell of boiled beef & rotting teeth
        floated down corridors
        linoleum floors
        creaking doors
        a sound not much heard – the sound often caught in Stalinist era moustaches – muffled like a silencer – the old ways
        the anthems written for better times
        – there is still no jazz
        all trumpets smelted down for grannies teeth
        just marching bands & funeral marches

        – the mysterious sauce pumped out out the meat stick – not enough pins acupuncture could not cure
