double shadow pikadon

a dead confusion; a static
something lost and automatic
something dressed a tragic
episodic magic

there are mushroom clouds in the backyard
there’s cancer in the front
there’s sunshine, there’s paper cranes
fat man and little boy and godzilla dancing

because we don’t know lollapalooza
under the breath shibboleth
machine gun fire and easy death
we watch the fate swiftly undress

a script frees
from a terminal striptease
some kind of crypt wheeze
of the last gasp kings of a failing world

don’t look so gloomy
the coffins roomy
decisions entomb me
and down we all domino
