Fuck You and Your Twenty-Six Point Two

Fuck you and your twenty-six point two,
and fuck the Escalades, two by two, white by white,

I’m waiting for protection.

Thirteen point one, you’re fucking done.

All around, I might be blind,

but there aren’t any cupped hands

managing my day.

The fuckers who wear their labels.

There’s love in the maze,

but they don’t take my dinero.

What I see with twenty-six point two,
they roll me on the microwave turntable,
kicking my poisoned kidneys,
choking and strangling my god

who rides a bicycle

without a helmet,

hugging the curb.

Thirteen point one runs over my god,
splotches on Escalades,

there will never be cupped hands.

Fuck me and my dead spirit.

I ain’t worth one point two.

    I graduated with a 2.0. This is hard to figure Carl. I see focused anger and disgust. But afraid to venture a comment.

      I was afraid to post it. It doe not work at all like I imagined, and now I’m a bit embarrassed, but I’ve done worse, much worse!

    this seems like Carl freestyling to me.

      Yes, you are kind and generous – Freestyling, but I’m afraid it doesn’t work. No one will say I didn’t try to stretch boundaries until I ran out of talent!

        you could never run out of talent.
        you are amazing.
        just deal with it.

    the numbers may refer to something. The escalade reference made me think about rims, but unsure and I agree with Carl D., a lot of anger, sounds like spoken word poetry around my way though 🙂
    smooches, hope you and your lovely one are well!

      Thank you for your comment. I wasn’t trying to be angry, but you’re right, it did go that way…

    I might have to agree with you on this one. Except for the end.

      Ha! Well, you’re the lone dissenter!

    I don’t see anger but despair. Or resigned acceptance of the unacceptable. Maybe that’s just me.

    • #11 by Carl on September 6, 2011 - 10:39 pm

      Resigned acceptance is a nice description, I hope.
