Oblivion Drives

Posted to Action Poetry




Sitting out there
with my old girlfriends
I see we've known each other
for quite a while:
Old School, Pubertal Alienage,
Sudden Big Breasts and First Drives...
Me- gone away from the city
Been happy- and tranquilized by rage

Now, I know girls end up
working in bars and
offices
breasts and asses change the shape
as everything starts to feel torn away

The cast off skin beneath my feet
makes me consider the Oblivion:
I fear not the Past
but the Disused Bodies;
the Time now, passing,
forgotten in the start;
I fear the Fears
that leave Unchanged the Corpses
emerged in the stream of time
flowing
but forgotten in the start...

Sitting out there
I see we've known each other
for quite a long time:
Sudden Big Breasts and First Drives
Me- gone away from the city
Been outstanding- and tranquilized by terror
