First fish upon a fire burning
Boredom my teenage vow to keep
Thus in the trees there asleep
Furious fists desists beating,
This immaculate I can be,
Three backwards descend from ten to me
Regress along a rope, defend
All pretension within instead

Allspice —Alright
Sprawled out on the hoods of cars tonight
Cast Iron shawls in the basements of bars tonight
Right click your schtick in the Martian stalls tonight
Fall tonight
Sizing up small, not right

There’s a clog in my clock,
Jailer unlock the moxie detox,
Money walks, Peace talks,
B.S. Faux
Yo No Se
Instant replay, infestation relayed
Chest flayed
Frida Kahlo, Frito-Lay

Tyger Tyger what is thy name?
Came ye to fight or entertain?
Suppose I suppress all what internally I detest
Instead of insisting a desert lily in an apple green dress
Hummingbirds and a thorn necklace
First fish upon a fire burning
Distressed, I digressed
