America, you have issues around death.
Take www.duckskulls.com -- home of
the Original Intimidator Duckskull --
it’s a way of saying You think you can
get away just by flying, motherfucker?
Banks & bosses will break my bones, but
if it flies, it dies, so don’t even think.
[Affect incredulous, cocky, vaguely
It’s not even real,
this duckskull, all one word. It’s made
in USA of polymer resin, handpainted
to look like an angry dead bird skull
w/eyes. Angry b/c it’s dead? Or angry on
yr account, like a guardian ghostcock?
If I had an animal skull on my rear view,
to remind me of the fractional life
I control, I’d think I’d died & gone
to heaven. I do have an animal skull, but
covered with flesh, not even dead, so
out of la mode, out of the loop, out of
necro-everything: the empty swamp,
the truck, the me . . .
