An american tradition

talks shows vomiting morality
black fridays spewing totality
as long as you walk out alive
with your new hdtv
riot for your piece of plastic
riot for piece of technology
riot for your piece of shit
deny your basic biology
pray to your god
the disposable king
get down on your holy leggings
and skinny jeans
yield to your new idol
and its sophomoric glow
pursue its message
focus your energy
focus your chi
towards your mecca
your holyland
the superstore temple
listen to the 30 second priest
and bring your coupons to church
so you can do it all again
to get a cheap glance into heaven

Incorporeal

this city is dead
ghosts wandering
trudging
waiting to expire
they are haunted
in this vacuum
their skin
birch white
they dress up
they dope up
try to feel
try to steal
the conflagration
of their fleshy counterparts
they wreak of death
of smoke and vapor
and department store wretch
they charge and rush
to go nowhere fast
they can’t see each other
but the living
we are beacons
they are moths to a flame

Occult

i want to eat baphomet’s head
and wear its crown
solve et coagula
i want to sit upon the earthen throne
forged by the seven gods
the ones who decree
i am as my mother
i am as my father
i am as my nature
i am as the primary
i am as the sky
i am a fleshy prison
as it took seven gods
it shall take seven deaths
there is no part in me
that is not part of the gods
ego sum chaos
