the sounds

last night im stoned i smoked some weed
my face became a positive death molecule
ready to be morphed into other objects
like a live oak or a pollywog
what i want to be is an effervescent oxygen molecule
and im speaking from the first person
when i say this, i just deleted four words
in other languages i just might be a cow
a cow that has fallen and hasn’t died
highly respectable in a supine position
