in my mind
and sometimes I let the Germans
win.

Oh, Brother

Last night I dreamt
that we went to
a whorehouse
but I couldn’t go
through with it

You got stuck in.

Funeral Arrangements

When I die I’d like to have my body cremated then my ashes mixed into a major supply of cocaine so that all the fucking cokehead kids and rock stars and lawyers and brokers will have a bit of me coursing through their veins causing them to talk the type of bullshit that I have pretty much turned into a professional career. That or a straight burial is fine.
