Mineral sweat
Available skin of the world rash
Words rushed
Hung pig, bristle burned
Gravity learns the drain
Blood runs silver
Eyes purge gold
Conquistador is very old

tv on – reveals ghost conquistador he flies away on white horse
meat bbq-ing on the tv, light of water jug

I pay to waste and
Trade in what leaves hands – hydrogen, rendered fat, pouring brass
Container trucks
Scarlet Fever, rubella, syphilis
Spent uranium

NARRATOR

Conquistador approaches the bar-b-q shack down. He comes down from out of the rain. He is a container truck. He carries three human heads by their hair. The eaters circle their shoulders around their food. He sleeps with all their wives

 

Abraham Lincoln runs the bar-b-q. When he wakes up from his hangover, he is staring up the pee hole of a pink plastic doll ling on garden furniture that stands next to an inflatable pool opaqued by a skin of the night’s bugs. He is looking and the insides of the doll are like a sugar Easter Egg – a pink scene englobed there, light all even, play there unmolested, soft extruded sugar forms at sport.
