1. affordable healthcare act

I want to die
but I try
to be fucking cool about it.
I think to kill myself
but I don’t think that I’ll ever
have the strength
to do a fucking thing about it
I can’t adapt.

2. anterograde amnesia

tried all the pills
still can't sleep
forgot how to breathe
forgot how to eat

tried all the pills
can’t tell what to think
loving every minute
as I vomit in the sink

i still
keep waking

3. live low and prosper

cashed in all your favors
no one left to cheat
you will soon find happiness
starving on the street

wandering the chambers of a home

snort down your last dollar
nothing left to eat
you will find all that you need
crawling by your feet

wandering the chambers of a gun

4. ethnoreligious convulsion

trapped by antiquity
maddened by anxiety
corralled into militancy
if this is my destiny

then rip off my flesh
and cast off these robes

relinquish my birthright

I’ll die
all alone.
