The Condition 2


everything is owned or stolen

liKe unexpected capitals like UNEX-

PECTED line breaks I mean

expected capitalists I dream

of being a capitalist I go on

to my friends about all

the houses I’ll own all the property

I’ll manage we’re spliced together

we’re at the perfect pitch we’re

doing everything unexpected

we’re turning corners brilliant

corners yesterday I couldn’t

approach complex harmony couldn’t

unlike everything I’ve ever liked

I want to walk with a limp I’ll

come to the aerodrome I’ll

watch the planes dancing I’ll

dance with your women and tread

on their toes you’ll section my

rhythm I’ll rhyme that she’d be better

off with him you’ll let the closing

track play we’ll have nothing left to say
