finding a pantone card that says “fake black.”
it was supposed to be a varial flip.
now it’s a murder mystery wiki-hole.
when I wake up
on the wrong side of the bed
it’s because of a wonderful dream
where you drag a carcass
of an animal you once fed
& it will likely now feed you.
not purple or blue, the face turned black. haunting.
at first I thought I needed a better bank
& it turns out I have nothing to offer.
humming hard into a paper towel tube I realized a voice.
wait for the electricity
pay for it
decide you don’t want electricity.
