His & Hers #6
I’ve been planning to pick up and finish this mchain project I began working on in 2008, His & Hers (you can read the first five poems there), a sort of sexual, political and gender-troubled stew of lines assembled from a set of Internet and scanned source texts. In some ways, this series was the predecessor to the 6x6x6 poems, but I feel like going back to it and working with it’s less dark and aggressive tone.
Here’s my first new poem in the series. I wrote it with Gnoetry 0.2 instead of mchain, but I pieced it together from several different regenerations in order to give it more of the cut-and-paste movement of the earlier poems.
I am hallucinating my destiny and happiness now
We meet Michael again at the Sunoco
And I feel a lot of rich people up and he takes photographs
Tar Money Like, I don’t have to do anything
There is too much suck in my heart to win any bitch nuts
And all these people watching it Horrified
Like there is no future because they’re violently ejecting bodily fluids
All over the place Like they aren’t happy there
Dabbling in photography with Michael
We get to the future doing nothing Just being there with him
