I picked up a partner

at the grocery store,

selected him from the catalog

over at the pheromone bar.


My Facebook update

was just a 404 ERROR,

and my deal with the devil

is gathering interest fast.


I’ve got a new religion

it's fruitarian (or something).

Maybe that was just my recent diet fad?

Anyways, I’ll have a vodka with that.


They put my mess back together,

Humpty Dumpty on rewind.

My life’s a 90‘s polaroid fixture,

and it's tinting out at last.


I picked up my brain 

at the doctor’s office today;

this time I ordered it up blue

and caffeine coated to get me through.
