45 Revolutions

for Jeremy

this machine kills fascists
but this is not a war
that’s not what our family does
we play games when we battle
bringing along our legion of monsters
& our ghosts & our friends
playing
window & cage
rhythm & blues
funk & soul

& just because your monkey can rock out
with walrus tusks & mojo strings
banging on cans
going on strike
you’re fighting a good fight against iron & lash
wheelin’ & dealin’ for a better life

you’ve got a goat cheese heart
& a beat down soup
& a million lines to choose from
but somehow
you’ve found yourself here
blownout & chill
around & around & around
again

same as it ever was
