Asthmaboy is Glindon Marten - Seattle WA

 

a branch crack in the woods

the boy who cried wolf

everybody stare at the black rectangle

shopping basket with old lettuce leaf

i saw a crow eat a baby bird

car doors closing in the distance

praying for nuclear annihilation

i'm born again feral

in the distilled city streets

through hollowed out concrete hulls

of banks and boutiques

ugly billionaires sending dick pics
fake work friends, small talk

eyes in the dark, one moon circles

your fake sad eyes

selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor
talking past each other
the smell of gasoline, sun baked vinyl seats, armpits and cleaning supplies
link is in the description

i repeat things i've heard on the news

with little to no agency or critical consideration of my own

a robin flew into the living room window and broke its neck
afraid to say anything

demonization, dehumanization, demonetization

afraid to say anything

AFRAID TO SAY ANYTHING

ants falling from the ceiling

two stones with one bird
one way supermarket aisles
6 feet apart or 6 feet below
sarcasm sarcasm orgasm
please will the asteroid come?
breathe
breathe
can't breathe
can't breathe
modern corporate slaves
cancel culture vultures

problematic, problematic, problematic

rabble, rabble, rabble
burn the witch
i do not want to be a part of the human race
everybody stare at the black rectangle

side-boob on the red carpet
corporate dogma bullshit
surprise and delight!
social media mob pitchforks

sad and pathetic
people who live in big cities are the worst people
it hurts to have a body
never actually saying what you really feel
inflated sense of self importance
culture of ME
you cant win anything, without losing something
moral superiority, point scoring
add crowd noises
rabble rabble rabble
counterfeit reality
extra curvy piece of driftwood

jacking off for any kind of release
cut my fingernails into the toilet
a crippling case of akathisia
hoping for the lesser of two evils
afraid to say anything

once you see how the sausage is made
add more crowd noises
money makes him sexually attractive
one hand washes the other
the more people “like” me on social media the better person i am inside
don't ask questions, just consume product and then get excited for next product
talking fast in pharmaceutical advertisements
take a dump now and then
a hint of nutmeg
check your credit score... fuckface
no need to think for myself
i get my truth from talking heads
watch the ad before the video
wait in traffic everyday, sometimes for hours
c.e.o. is my new g.o.d.
no time for your own passion
city full of itself
people clawing eyes out
9 to 5 suicide

adderall in the corporate kitchen coffee?
fake laugh, ass kissing
inspirational corporate sizzle
keep the herd calm
with wallets wide open
always need the newest best thing
survival of the fittest asshole

i want your blood on my teeth
a taste of copper and/or iron
hollywood thinks everyday people live in mansions
playing the victim
everyone did a racism
if you don't think the way i do, you must be hitler
24% a.p.r.
children in cages
adults in skyscrapers
buy yourself into oblivion
you cant take it with you

our universe is a single closed electron

the delicate meows of an afternoon kitty
you have something in your teeth
spoiled brat, false ambition

i put my arms up when you start the fight
people who cannot see anything outside the poison prism of politics

double standard

bitches be trippin'
i'm tired of trying

i'm tired of trying

I'M TIRED OF TRYING


pretending to be interested
fake sad eyes
the smell of chlorophyl

scissors for the children
two sides to every story
gas on empty
down to my last five
wet red leaves on the concrete
pictures of my perfect life
thinking about buying a gun
calm down
enjoy the sunshine
the feeling of my arms around you
makes me feel o.k.
for just a moment
