  Details   DMCA

at the cusp of the event horizon

let it not be said that i lacked luster

sufficient to glow a bulb. i'll muster

what's left of my vibe before i wizen

like a worn down electric jellyfish

whose neurons, drained by black matter vampires,

longs to leap into the void where empires

have gone before me. f*ck it. it's all kitsch,

i'll say. bamboozle soup and side of fries.

say, i was no einstein or raquel welch,

never solved the mind-body problem belch

and, face it, had really bad taste in ties.

who knows what's on the other side of dark

and what waits for this tiny little spark?
