Ode to Mike Tyson
Sometimes I wanna say no
just so I can say it like you do.
As though nothing can be affirmed,
as though you can’t run into the ocean.
No. The appeased aren’t onto us.
No. A small, triumphant church.
No. A dog chasing a glove
on a street I can’t remember.
Freedom is only lonely
when you let it be.
The heat precedes the fire.
A boy precedes the heat.
Sometimes a lake is really a sea,
your prize pigeon beheaded.
Unmask my pet illusions.
Devastate the world.
