bad habit*

for CAConrad

“you never get the answer in the recitation of the problem”

(from Paul Thek’s notebook #29, 1977)


hello has been
harlot impersonator
screen test carnivore

faux relic of private
behavior misdiagnose
housewife castle as

retro catacomb vocal
hassle usual body
virulent orgasmic i

resist authentic
house a skull
limestone ornate

isolate fake fine

*this poem came about as a result of a collaborative soma(tic) poetry ritual CAConrad and i created. for information about the ritual that led to this poem, please see: this is #81.
