Schizophrenia, by Sonic Youth


"My future is static..."

A balanced, permissive fate upon twice
Your ages, listening to the poets
From behind their podium, mic twitter
Organize my way through this

An acoustic guitar plugged into this
Arranger, producer, distance the treble
I want to include you in my versions
Affairs born of filling the page
Last time we spoke I was too high
To listen beyond verbs & vowels

What my lack of steady sources reveals
An inadequate funding, reborn sutures
Injuries sustained while breathing fumes
A tour of the city's bohemian landmarks
An accumulation of breaches, jagged
Emphasis of my filial research
