Feels blue, like

Can of coke feels blue,

Makes you blink when you see the red

Feel blue like cold coke,

Feels blue, about the weight

Of Jack Nicholson's singing voice;

The weight of a wadded ball of cellophane

Rough edges on the lips

Kissing dad goodbye before a shave

I cried when he cut the beard

Smells so much like scissors

1999, and just as smooth

But it's as bright as a full moon cut by a meteorite:


It is a rubber chicken.

I'm as surprised as you.
