arms of walls enfold me. new jersey takes me into her withered breast my syphilitic queen of hairspray and highways. new jersey, i am your human incarnation. barbed temper and electric razor tongue. turnpikes jingle dancing anklets and the parkway my jasper necklace. sands of my body ebb at the prodding of the tantrum sea. more and more gives way each day as gulls howl comedy with their harlequin heads. new jersey- you hating whore of new york. you let them plough your grassy curves so they could traffic you in swarms. maggots worming their way to new york or boston or philadelphia. beaten whore with blackened eyes from factory fists. you let them with hands beneath your sitting ass. you don't even make fists anymore. your bitter vitriol oozes from your lips. you smack your children in public toilets and lash them with your bullwhip tongue. new jersey, i am you. i am you and i want to go, new jersey. i've seen horizons. but you grab my garters with desperate press-on nails painted corvette red and whine, no- i am the only one who ever understood- must you leave me too? new jersey i am you. i loathe you and i loathe myself like roadkill deer left on I-80 for a week. what evil bitches we are, my sweet. i must run from you as i run from myself and you follow me, you whore, as my self. underneath the mattress i hide the crumpled dollars to pay the abortionist. i shall unshackle our souls my whore my queen and we shall rise to the ozone sky.
