Went out and bought a hammer today,
heavy as a bottle of cheap wine in my hand,
an assortment of nails long & strong
enough to make a centurion proud.
Came home and started nailing it all in place
b/c I don't want anything to change.
Started with my toothpaste,
chipped the sink but now it's arranged.
Drove some through the curves of my coathangers,
ripped my jeans till comfortably in place.
Then the drapes. Magazines and toilet paper,
peephole stuffed w/ hammered heads,
the calendar won't move past today,
the clock's hands crucified in line at 10
