a fragment giving homage to old Bull Lee..

“The broken image of Man moves in minute by minute and cell
by cell.... Poverty, hatred, war, police-criminals, bureaucracy,
insanity, all symptoms of The Human Virus.”
― William S. Burroughs, N

Riffing Burroughs

Thinking time background flat and folded
E=Mctoo, Imbibing microcosms in a private//;o o public zoo
Dingy cardboard cutout cities glowering template towers tumble bones
Cracked gravestone skylines
All income combines
To afford to score the game, 2 cuts to count offhand traded
Background bent & faded
Railcars burning with loads of lies
Too light to be unloaded
Chain the broken ghosts to doors
Thinking time is train time
Time for junkyard cites and violet church gardens
Mushroom skies cloud with glassy rain
Pain cuts pleasure
Money spills blood chase with tears
Painted dust, years sickly drying
Cash a ticket that exploded
The Ticket That Exploded.
