painting rimbaud pictures
with flowers thieved from genet
kafka laughs at escape routes
while salinger chalks "fuck you"
on the wall and lovecraft
ignores it everything
staring corners down

camus shoots them all

aujourd'hui, maman est morte
he mutters under the glare
of the sea and sun
knowing then he held
a philosophical problem
he shot himself dead

coffee growing cold
in the spring of discontent
