SPIV DRIVER #3 - SHINING A SPOTLIGHT ON IGNORED EXISTENCE



by Travis Jeppesen & Matthew Wascovich

COPYRIGHT © 2002, 3 A.M. MAGAZINE. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Lush of the Languid Scent
(Jeppesen)

Wet dreams, table sauce belittlement.
Still, not nixing
the fancy or cool me
down.
The fear of another frog
like last July,
when Judy pissed out
a zero. Forking

out arithmetic, the most
placid fashions. Get
high off the lifestyle, or
get the fuck
out. Never
knew how boring it was until
get yourself invited
out the sill, down the

street. At the end of the
block,
a nouveau art - indignant
sculptures made of hair
and wax, screaming to be left
alone, ignored
it will all remain, until
the next giant runs out of
toilet paper,
the god of celebrity calls the
last number, the door is
over there.


Basement Floods the Sexual
(Wascovich)

Said the man who looks like a woman
Neutralize over and out and under
Said silence makes you older
Guess stomp the receiver
The poor man mental disorder
He is with you in disease
I am so clean that I can't stand you anymore
