Shebvon Askew


I am twirling, twirling,

Swinging on branches of pee.

I am watching drops bless day-dreamers!

“Snap out of it!” he said. “The bus is here!”

My feet expand to step on God’s precious

Ants and Uncles- cousins become redesigned

Under my gum-ridden boots (size 10 in men).

Kelis screams on album made of fake vinyl,

But I scream on tapes, paper gold necklaces

For fake listeners.

I’m crazy I’m telling ya’- so don’t Fuck with me!
