Back of an envelope, back of the bar

by maddrunkgenius

Science is a point of view
the same as any other but
it’s the only point of view
that’s predictive of the
circumstances of our collective
fantasy & that’s worthwhile
enough to justify itself if
anything does.


If God were real or
even benevolent he’d
fill all our heads with
endless endorphins
& be done with it.

Don’t think that
because you’re here
no one else could
fill the space
your molecules
currently inhabit.

‘Fucking gentrification,’
all of the middle-class
office workers bitch as
the dive bar they’ve been
going to after work for the last
three months is forced out
for something nicer they’ll
go to as soon as it opens.
(Or maybe wait two weeks
out of respect.)
