I Drink Alone
© Crux Charisma
i want to run naked
through the city
screaming
this is bullshit
and leave nothing
but burning rubble
in my wake
i want firecrackers
to sear wrinkles
in your
botox smile
because the media
(and testosterone)
tell me
i must inseminate
the woman with the
largest breasts
and smallest hips
so another
complacent ingrate
can spill
from her cunt
and rape the planet
more

mister
anarchist
nihilist
linguist
haute couture
glamour girl
elitist shits
all of you
who sneer
down your nose
at sheep
in greener pastures
while you fluff
your wool

your subculture
counterculture
is still
culture
sheer abstraction
to distract you
from the fact
there is no point
to anything
so shove it
up your ass

i have a hard time
dealing with all these
fragments of
emotion
and
logic
there was alot of
potential
but we lost it
in an egocentric quest
for progress
so i am
just fragments
and don't know
if I hate humanity
or just being
human
but either way
i drink alone.

complacent ingrate
can spill
from her cunt
and rape the planet

ahh so true. all of it.

this part screeches well:

your subculture
counterculture
is still
culture
sheer abstraction
to distract you
from the fact
there is no point
to anything
so shove it
up your ass

It seems like everywhere I look, cubism still reigns supreme. I like this poem a lot. I think the smallest hips should be replaced with "the smallest waist," but that's probably just my personal opinion. The girl with the smallest hips would be less fit to bear children, which would turn the part of me controlled by testosterone off. All the same, that ending is very well placed, and the voice is fresh and very present.

Oh! How I love this. I hope you don't mind, but I'm adding you on my friends list. I want to read more and more. I want to devour it. Please let me read.

Hey I agree, friends?
This is fantastic - the perfect combination and raw and eloquent.
