A POEM by BARRACUDA GUARISCO

CLASSICALLY RELAXED,

LANDING PUNCHES OUTSIDE THE DREAM

by dint of skimmed chance, we mutualize

fake far(-off) eastern argot


we’re not basic, we’re just human;

passing pipe, chemistries

stoked on satori halos


what bright ideas we should not bother


the healing PRONTOsaurus runs lengthy,

exacerbated text


don’t be too hard on yourself

this vertigo is not self-inflicted


it is the noise that has taken over


it’s the noise, most certain

all that can be heard is noise trapped sound
