AFTER GRANDIOSITY IS PLAIN OLD NARCISSISM

Down in the cellar I get so scared I bend my fingers back
A floor so cold it could grow grass

What if suddenly all news changed

This little girl could never talk herself into comfort
Only become quiet as concrete

My teacher doesn’t let me go when she hugs me
My teacher is tired and filled with laughter
My teacher tells stories and I wish I was in them

Sometimes I hold something up for my kids
Look boys this is a news-pa-per
but I can already tell it’s obsolete

The rooms smell like apples

I have a joke that ends when an eggplant asks two hot dogs
what are you anyway
