Have You Seen This Man?



He's a junkie
with a tv
that only comes in
black and white

He chooses his own
sweetmeat, and he
gets to pick cash
on delivery; the
Lord's child expects
sugar after syrup

with that cough

That cough of
cancer

of wet red blood
of sticky white phlegm, cum that comes from cock cunt fused
of sticky embryo, tsunami
of sticky situations
to sticky colorless ends
on a Kleenex

He coughs out
his life, it's

poetic
pleasant

It's a wonderful
life plays in HD
with no color on

his flat screen

Ah, you've spelled my name correctly.

Thanks.

This is one of those ones where you wonder if everyone else sees it and you're the only dumbass and then you try to convince yourself that you're not the only one, that the author is purposely being obtuse just to fuck with you or maybe they're one of those pretentious assholes who writes in code that only they know about subjects only they are familiar with and all the groupies go, "Yesss, what she was really trying to say...", as if they had any more clue than anyone else and then Nick pops up with, "...you've spelled my name correctly" and I really don't know what's going on.

Help me, LeWriter.

It's a metaphorical rendering of Nick Pierce.


Just saw the Help me, LeWriter.

Disregard my response.

(yeah, like it ain't all about me)
