soup of can(not)

make it prescient like fried curly hair
and bold image
warhol-bright so your eyes explode
in a glimpse of ba-ba-boom

you smile your smile
joyce smiles his joy-cetera

don’t let the lyric escape
the subject
don’t let the subject not
be what is seen your – cock – a – doodle – do

classifying fonts or
letters of demotivation

poets say what is not
theirs to say
but they don’t care
about possession

that is why
first person pronoun is not
second person possessive pronoun
