grey sky drinking

I ponder the etiquette of nursing a pint

and whether some might find it impolite

if I made it last just little while longer that I

might watch the rain that crawls on the steamed windows

making broken ghosts of every passer by

each of them eager to avoid

catching the eye of the living and I wonder

which one of them broke winter’s heart such as to make it

Hex contains swearing

Hex

This genie spell hex you put on me will kill me.

I want to die.

I'm sick of the anxiety and shit you cause me, in my head all the time.

Now more have the bomb, ten thousand times bigger than the Hiroshima firecracker,

that destroyed your city. Old people walk happily down the str...

My anxiety is like an ambush predator.

WHAM! I’m fucked...

It’s fucked.

 

Would you manage a year in my head?

Would you?

Could you?

Should you?

 

I think you should...

Into my head you shall go...

Degeneration X and anarchy
