oldnew

slipping away
dull day doldrum drink-in
wishing popculture
would just leave me
and mine alone

instead:
obligatory coats of
saccharine angeldust
w/powdersugar
force-injected inbetween

they will rubber erase
all graffitied charm away on
this thing too

maybe i need to
trade my name
change my trains
wear a fresh
black beret
and rise up rise up
to vomit up all the
oldnew stuff

  1. The sentiment behind this one is something I’ve definitely felt. A desire to slip on the black beret and time travel to a place away from this one (at least that’s where I went in my mind).
