Snow in June

I don’t recall my voice having a generation to back it up

I don’t recall ever having the courage,
the persistence
the real life tendency to create

we try to remember the soon to be damned, these soldier coated poets on
MDMA induced life, fused into

walking in parks
walking on sidewalks
walking in subwaystations looking for places youve never visited

reciting

by
trying to make post rock

we discovered distortion
walking next to walkers next to buildings next to others
next to

‘the unintended indescretion before micro fallen camera’

we finally came to the conclusion that China’s great firewall will not prevent me
from using the previous character
that

BB appears to have abandoned statesmanship

never
never
never
never

saying it about four times

and yet central is still within the grasp of
communism

and yet we still hold on to ourselves

don’t forget Tiananmen
don’t forget Hong Kong

I walked into a McDonalds restaurant the other day, thinking about Taipei,
some moving scenery for the sake of everyday drug abuse. iMovie recorded
middle class madness and the ability to forget your misinterpretation of Zizek’s
interpretation of marxism

I dont recall my voice having a generation to back it up

Dou E was right to let it snow
Guy Fawkes wasnt an idiotic excuse for a terrorist

Anonymous doesnt realise that stopping childpornography from spreading out
to all four corners of the dark web

will never be a priority

it will snow this June
on our houses will lie the dust of generations

while we are tucked in under sheets
staring at the reflection of the moon in your one
window

so we think of home
    we think of mothers
    we think of the nineties

and bad bad bad fashion
