I have a hunger

I have a hunger to take off my top

I have a hunger to take off my top sweater wolf sweater and shave rub oil into my chest pour milk over my chest

when I go into the kitchen I see a naked girl

when I go into the kitchen I see a naked woman

when I go into the kitchen I see my own naked reflection clothed reflection sobbing reflection

none of this is true all of this is true none of this happened none of this can happen again

 

I went to sleep last night dreaming of the prefix un

there are so many ways to finish that off (finish this off)

but I when I woke (I never slept) I settled on unappeased

I made coffee and I was unappeased

I pissed and I was unappeased

I undressed and I showered and I wanked and I walked and I smoked and I drank and I talked to a woman and I talked to the woman I saw naked from my kitchen and I talked to my own naked clothed reflection and I lay on the floor and listened to music birdsong nothing a football match

I imagined a time other than this

me in that time

I in it

I of it

I want it

I had it

I forced it

I for it

I for it

I for it

I for it

for it
