“Rip-Cord Strangulation” by Charlie Centipede

Asses like blankets
And paranoid
With 9 volt brains
And see-thru eyes
That suck in the darkness

We tried to feed them
But they shouted us down

Planted out back
Behind the under-achievers’
Coats

And the clocks continued
To spin backwards
In the dirt

—Charlie Centipede
