At Least Rats Know When to Run.

the vermin say
they’re interested in art
and they see real art
and they can’t comprehend it
they need the obvious story
the banal message
the clear picture
spelled out for them
in simple shapes
and mundane colors

they need to read
about adolescent wizards
they need to laugh at
fat, 4 fingered cartoons
they need to vote
on insignificant
world leaders
their music is full
of heartache
and rabbit shit
their clothes tell you
everything
that you need not
converse
to notice their death
seeping into your bones

I laugh
when a body says
they like art,
they’ve obviously
never met her.
