i washed all my clothes tonight
but then i got in a fight
i killed my brother Ken
he gone and triple-teamed
my favorite gallery girl
when she was washing me
he crept up and slay her

he Ozymandias
he come to hurtle me
into flashing sea -
there i flub and flame
until a passing turtle
say he rescue me -
he sidle up slick-shelled

young and fancy-free,
i care about getting gum
to chew on while i shelve
the major mouths of sharks
i've speared in nautical belt
i'm overcome by grief -
it come to handicap me

i stroke a faunal nymph
it woodland in its home
it sprite, and winged bows
for shapely sister hen
who dips to sun at hilt
of old Manhattan day -
it wink and float away

the ridge it summons those who think they're scorned
and fed all kinds of mercury crumbs
as they do eat their bread

i'm here with six little girls
they want to be like me
we're having talentless fun
there's no regards for none
the odds are six million-to-one
i'll salvo with my gun -
mythologize me
