East Rock Beauty Kids

from by Loner Chic



“I see the townies holding hands” — A. Maine

I do not dream
I do not sing— I scream
when I am alone
but I’m never alone

and I want to call you
and that already seems quaint
develop the film
unwind the tape

Return, Copy, Paste
Shift-key tapped to ruin
I’ve entered so much information
I no longer know what I’m doing

and I feel like my grandpa
with this infernal machine
that I was borne into
an inhuman being

But how could you never want to be so well connected?
My network’s expanding
My life is a checklist
Please accept my request
Please follow me back
to the ends of the digital universe
in binary White and Black

Let’s slow dance
But I do not dream
I do not cry— I empty
Just let it all out

the humors: the bile, the blood, and the gout
My constitution’s a mess
Oh, please held me undress
Please make me come

Redeem my defective corporeal atoms
But how could you never want to be so well loved?
I am my mother: an unconditional lover
I am an elusive fraternity bid
I am an East Rock resident
I am a beautiful kid
