–after Emmanuel Hocquard

After writing each sonnet I smoke
A stolen cigarette. She is my jerk-off
Fantasy girl with a perfect body. The
Beautiful sunlight angers me.
Madness watches over me.
Samantha washes over me.
Fucking Parliament Lights suck
Or maybe it’s just that I’m

People in cars wash by
I watch them watch me,
I see Druids
W/needles in their arms.
