Big Bird On Fire

I remember
Choking down poison
With the gods
Of depression
To validate our
Various discontents

I remember
Sage advice from an octopus
Who could smoke six joints
While piloting a helicopter

I remember
The logic behind abstaining
From swimming
For at least thirty minutes
After being impaled
By unicorns

I remember Twin Falls
Peppermint crack
Ritualistic muppet cruelty
And electricity
Between our fingers

I remember ashes
Wet and shoveled under
In danger of rising
Once again
