they flooded the coliseum

(This spectacle is presented before the Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas, several times each day)


Recorded Reading:


they flooded the coliseum

and staged
for the people’s amazement
and entire naval battle
complete with greek fire
and sunken sailors

at a public cost as colossal
as the structure itself

while the populace
lacked bread

unimaginable today

unless one vacations
in las vegas

    1. I’m sorry, girlfriend. When I had a home my diet was pretty pathetic also.

      Right now at least I have healthy food ~ although I am constantly ingesting insecticides as I dodge and weave around my stalker’s recruits putting tainted products I’m known to buy back on store shelves right before my arrival.

      Between that and deliberate sleep disturbances, most of the basics of my life are fucked for the foreseeable future
