    Sold Out


Here’s another of my obsessions
A confession I have to get out
I said, “I’m longing for recognition”
You said, “It’s always such a let-down”

I sent you flowers

Injections will kill the fever
These insects are spreading around
A gentle assassination
Oh I suppose it doesn’t matter now

I sent you flowers
Dismantled flowers

Make the object fit the subject
This unease edited out
I’m forever in your shadow

I’ve got this word virus
And you’re just making it worse
