has been

you become a
fat serial killer
you eat the
monkey shoes

you lead an
army of cosmopolitan
parasites in love
with monster nails

you shy away from
a crowd of funerals
crying for justice
in suits of black

you take away
the cups in food courts
and never return
borrowed books

you are an actor
who doesn’t watch
your own movies and
acts so badly

you are the foreigner
in the land where
everyone talks in
alien language and die
