Poem by Cody John Laplante

 

the sound of silence #2

I’m like   a pro bono whore

for the whole fucking universe

I love Courtney Love but
she really needs to go die already

He says he wants me to but I mean
what would he do all day hog-tied in the closet?

The Andy Warhol banana
RUINED MY LIFE!

When I was born
I pulled my mom’s uterus out

I was like ‘oh yeah, you’re coming with me!’

They pretty much pulled up and said
‘we don’t like what you’re doing
so we’re gonna kill all of you.’

How’s That for a joke?
