Kilgore Trout

December 17, 2018

contemporary mood:
viewing the western world
through a basketful of
stereopticonic hallucinations

all is unfolding
like a Kurt Vonnegut novel
or worse,
like a Kilgore Trout story

concentration
shattered into
distractions

a slurry of
the bland where
there is no impact
but that of
porridge
in a sock

searching for unreasonable reasons
as for a noodle in a haystack
behind a carnival of fakes
waiting for the fate train
to roll on down the lime

old enough to know better
dumb enough to give it a try

art never got anywhere
by hanging around
waiting for permission
or payment
