i bite into the apple
and feel the excitement and nerves
of the holidays.
---those endless lines in big box stores,
i sneak right through.
and you out there in the shoppingmall cold---
the future is here
and i am still attempting calm in spite of ourselves
---we'll end up riding the rainbow.
live out this fantasy we always wanted to live
the endless fantasy
burnished by oh those little uncertain time loops.
somewhere in cascadia the animals still eat people,
around the living room we sit
opening the wrapping paper vigourosly.
will you be there with me
when i open the wrapping paper
and all those little bags
with electronics and money inside of them.
---snotty nose and lust,
i just wanna get out of town
