,

i’m going for a walk
to buy a pack of smokes
and i’m thinking
too much
or not enough,
that my take on life
might be misguided,
that even though
stupidity seems to reign,
maybe i’m not so smart
and maybe i should
cooperate,
shave my beard
and get a haircut,
do all those things
dad said i should
if i want to be president,
but fuck that job…
that’s for the real loonies

i’m going for a walk
to buy a pack of smokes
and i’m thinking
i haven’t loved as deeply
as i could,
but that’s okay
or not
or whatever… fuck it…

i’m going for a walk
to buy a pack of smokes
and i’m gonna suck on’em
like supple tits
and inhale with relish
and exhale with abandon
and fuck all the goodie-goodies
with their bullshit rules
and healthier-than-thou crap,

i’m going for a walk
to buy a pack of smokes
and i’m gonna blow it in your face
