You’ve got the gun
And you’re killing everything I love
You don’t respect it
And what you are yeah I reject it
You’re just a fashion show
And you shit on everything I know
And now I’m seeing red
Cause you pulled the trigger
And metal is dead

I know quite a few.
You can stretch the truth
And patience wears you so thin
It’s just as easy to see through
Your high self opinion
I know I might be wrong
But I’m sick of pretending
I’ve listened to you too long
And nothing’s ever mended
–“Renovation” by Helmet
Jill: But… but those were his men.

Harmonica: I didn’t let them kill him, and that’s not the same thing.

Henry Gibson: Although, so far there’s no known treatment for death’s crippling effects, still everyone can acquaint himself with the three early warning signs of death: one, rigor mortis; two, a rotting smell; three, occasional drowsiness.
from The Kentucky Fried Movie
“The baby rises to its feet, takes a step, is overcome with triumph and joy – and falls flat on its face. It is a pattern for all that is to come! But learn from the bewildered baby. Lurch to your feet again. You’ll make the sofa in the end.”
— Pam Brown

When wandering through the “underground?-huh? what?” I run across Justin Hyde’s work occasionally. We’ve appeared in some of the same places here and there. His poem: “at my first poetry reading” in the January issue of Zygote in my coffee is fucking great. Check it/them out. I’d post a quote, but it’s kinda short and hard (TWSS). Plus, I don’t want to jump any ethics with this pub–they’re pretty f’ing cool.
