I am the CONSUMER

Cleaning should be done and I look at my desk and this is what I see.
A tub of honey, teapot, bowl of half eaten tomato soup, 8 paper coffee cups, a ceramic coffee cup, a plate, a spoon, a can of coke, 7 cans of whiskey and cola, 3 2L juice containers, a few packets of empty cigarettes, a full one, a lighter, and some guitar parts.

I AM THE CONSUMER.

 

Shh…

This noise, whirring,
alerts me to silence.
The others seem to be giving me brain cancer.
These hero’s.
SILENCE!
They just go on and on these hero’s.
They tell you they’ve been to jail,
out on probation,
hero’s?
I feel sick and was scared before bed.
I drank, I might now again.
This consideration of paper.
Being drunk makes you write,
that is sad,
that is alarming.
That is Bukowski and his udder’s.
SILENCE!
