business suits

heavy and black

like staplers

tape dispensers and trash bags pressed

and the crowd gasps

and rolls slightly back in their seats…

i also learned how to draw giant squids

now i’m working on learning how to draw scary fishes

so i can decorate my turtle’s aquarium

if anyone has any tips

its teeth

and perhaps the number of eyes it has

like

a detached third eye

jetting out from some pointed teeth

would be pretty scary

i’d be pretty scared

lets walk around at midnight

because the druggies are kept inside homes, in seal beach

because instead of jumping off cars or wheeling supermarket carts

they bang against the walls of their garage

so others can pretend that nothing’s wrong

it’s just the wind

when you’re at the beach
