Predict your own Alzheimer’s

Terminally slay-diseased,
Serving bitter and possessed.
Wench-core? simple darling:

Banish the Whittaker’s. Advice Column:
Flamboyantly the nickel sailed
Across the yard to the bucket
And made a splash! (Make a splash!)

Fish landing in a bowl, winnable.
Like a poster:
Motivational . (Class – room setting.)
We’re-ing and they’re-ing,

Contracting Fabuloso !
Oh & restrict jewelers ; they
Tend to stick to tradition.
Famish the tickle dip machine,

Ya cobbler toothed wring dinkle.
Delivery match Aunt Angel
Thumb creases in forgetfulness…
I aim never to read what was written.

o doctor of phrenological expertise
to deliver myself from ignorance
please admit me to where i should go – perhaps

how to invent a prison in the mind?
how to render a dream as a prison?
like piranesi imprisoned in his sleep.

to be frank i am tired of transcendentalism.
i no longer wish to speak around things.
i wish to direct my word like a knife.
