I, Nocturne

You should be sleeping
in a car with a window
rolled down a cliff
in a movie
about bears
yes A MOVIE
yes BEARS
yes licking HONEY
from your BELLY BUTTON
a crowd of butterflies
are talking
yes they are TALKING
right HERE
in this POEM
because I SAY SO
and here is what
they are saying:
WE ARE A NEW TYPE OF BUTTERFLY
WITH UGLY RAZOR TEETH
and now for something totally kick ass:
YAY: all
sorts of money
is flying everywhere
HOLY SHIT
money is no object
but here it is: BOOKS
you can buy all the BOOKS
you ever wanted
late at night things are
more interesting
more crisp
more colorful
than the drab and steamy DAY
maybe you should
put on the pink rubber mask
and scare your life
in the other room
maybe not
maybe baby.

Even if you were so rich to buy all the books you wanted you would never be rich enough to have a place to put them in NYC.

Oh, and you can't lick honey off a belly with a pink gas mask on, trust me on this one.
