a girlfriend came in

built me a bed

scrubbed and waxed the kitchen floor

scrubbed the walls


cleaned the toilet

the bathtub

scrubbed the bathroom floor

and cut my toenails and

my hair.


all on the same day

the plumber came and fixed the kitchen faucet

and the toilet

and the gas man fixed the heater

and the phone man fixed the phone.

noe I sit in all this perfection.

it is quiet.

I have broken off with all 3 of my girlfriends.

I felt better when everything was in


it will take me some months to get back to normal:

I can't even find a roach to commune with.

I have lost my rythm.

I can't sleep.

I can't eat.

I have been robbed of

my filth.
