Dear John

your window
is shut
locals only
i am exhibit
8.6 in your
library
it’s important to
distinguish the
real from the
imagined
how can i
keep eating
popcorn when
i’m going
out of fashion
been going
been going
been going
okay
holding red
cups having sex
in the ice cubes
thanks a lot is
an expression
of gratitude
your branding is
[forever/fervour]
