the best thing

is lying on a bed

made of old couch

cushions laid out

on the floor

my arm around

the now obese,

one-eyed cat,

who once survived

off garbage left

in and around

the dumpsters

by my not-

so-mobile

home.

the best thing

is falling asleep

to the sound of

purring,

as out there

man-shaped

maggots grin,

slap each other

on the backs,

fight over

parking spots,

and cheer for

the fools

whom they pay

millions

to play with

balls.

the best thing

is slipping

into sweet,

sublime

unconsciousness,

as the latest crop

of Romeos seek

for fresh Juliets,

but end by bedding

down with the

coughing corpses

of diseased,

bloated

whores.

my boarded-up

windows mock

them all, as the

cruel, mad sun

performs her daily,

obscene dance,

as the old money turns

and the new world burns,

my smile gently spreads

across this pillow,

this park,

this universe.
