couple months old. haven't written, really, since around december or so. need to start editing stories and sending them out. and i miss posting here. all's well with me, though. any other ideas for a recent english major graduate besides editorial assistant/proof reader?

subjected to a
p
y r
a m i d
scheme
scam
the schematics show
you could make millions a year

YOU SHOULD BE HERE!
sean puffy combs holds the sign up
YOU SHOULD BE HERE!
average folk hold the sign up
YOU SHOULD BE HERE!
i am in bed alone

a shambles
of an idea

gamble 287 dollars because you make it in a week
blow it at the club popping bottles
i hear the enthusiasm
this insomniac team
will lose money like everyone else

your niece hopped in on one foot
wearing thick stockings and a tutu and jorge bought a car
why does every girl i know wear moccasins?
why is every guy i know great with kids?

"this scam," says the blog, “is mostly endorsed by convicts and felons
who have no problem conning you out of your money for their own
personal gain
even if you’re close with them."
the man with the rapper’s voice, the rapper’s dress code, the rapper’s tattoos
yet living a pauper’s life
said anyone who knows him knows he’s only about money
i am uncomfortable with these accents
these convincings

we all want our families to rest
in disneyland
or maui

they say thank you for your time
if you don’t give them your visa

i say open your eyes

the world at midnight in midmarch
is nothing but street signs
illuminated by street lamps
under which streetwalkers lurk
waiting for a pickup
men who think they **** like pornstars
or sad souls putting off going home

somewhere
there is a word for this bleakness
there is an answer
for this loss
the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
