The guy that drew the Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner Cartoon

He was probably often ridiculously sad 

like all of us get sometimes

drinking a beer looking at a yellow wall

and then he would spend endless hours 

at a drawing desk drawing cels  

that slowly moved the Coyote

closer to some inevitable cartoon cliff edge or fake mountain tunnel 

to some hilarious not-death

and that was his job


Oyster No. 1

The first person

To ever eat 

An oyster

Was probably


Also


The first person

To eat a rock


School

I was walking

To the purple school

The purple school

Was far away

And small

And as I walked 

The school

Never grew

And I started to run

Still

The school never grew

It was after midnight

And I was late for school

And I’m 36.

sitcom

always imagine
a laugh track
behind every situation in your life

 

Halloween Costume Idea

The uncaring eye of a hungry shark
A negative of an eye
like blood swirling down a shower drain
an eye like a void
like I’m taking your fucking candy
and vanishing your life
doomed to nothingness
not even infinity ya fuck
just death
your kid will love this costume
