The Farce that will Become History, part ii


that dream you have

where you’re about to have sex

with a dead shark

except that white guy from NBC shows up

on his Patrol boat, with his silver hair, yelling

something hokey and obnoxious at the same time, like

‘You’re too late pal–this predator’s mine! Catch your own’?

it’s never very clear

which of you he is talking to, though

you always take off your mask

just the same, as if



for your mugshot.


that you have this

dream again and again, and

each time you wake up

feeling like a high-rise

that just collapsed

in the middle of the desert–

You do, really?

Because I just made it up.



that it helps to remove

your mask when you need to swim

for your life.
