In the Queue For Autumn: a prose sonnet
Can't sleep, can't dream, can't wake, can't write, can't fuck; my steps by night, by day, an empty dance. Like an insecure lover, summer sucks--past pleasure, past pain--to sere existence.

Can't cop yet that brand X oblivion while I remember the scenttastefeel of beer, poetry, pussy, breeze and visions; what it is to dream, what it was to love.
Just gotta hold on until autumn comes to lose myself once more in life's tart hum
