Prose Decomposed #9: Bright Eyes — Poison Oak

Poison oak, some boyhood braveryWhen the telephone was a tin can on a stringAnd I fell asleep with you still talking to meYou said you weren’t afraid to dieIn Polaroids you were dressed in women’s clothesWere you made ashamed? Why did you lock them in the drawer?And I don’t think that I ever loved you […]

Prose Decomposed #8: Aesop Rock’s Gopher Guts

Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts; Poolside; 0 for 1 and don’t forget spoons twice Lukewarm folgers; mold on his moonpie Rooms in his home that dissipate into fruit flies Suicide lane wide load ride looting in the wake of an amicable marooning My duty go from moving in packs to sharing food with a cat.
