When the rain comes down…in the swimming pool…and rabbit ears has his pink life…kissed by movie stars.
Rabbit ears isn’t so lonely anymore. Literally hovering over the highway. Chain-link crosswalk. Loitering.
Rabbit ears had it bad in the dump. Got beat up by stereotypes. Shot with cap guns. But the words real hurtful.
I wanna add my own appendix to this here masterpiece. And so’s I goes on the Google and finds pictures.
They say a boy can’t be beautiful. Just handsome. And a taxi…a cab. Can only be hansom.
We’ll get to your favorite scene in due time. Just tape that bacon to the tile. We’ll be returning.
I wanna add my own art to art already made. Found footage. Found emotions. On the junk heap. Andre Breton.
All those cool French guys recording their dreams. Dali. With a little slanted dot over the eye.
Yeah, Dali and Bunuel. With a little wave over the inn.
And the donkey or whatever. Gets his eye cut reel bad. And this was near the beginning of cinema.
And Bunuel went on to Mexico. And Aleister Crowley went to Mexico. And Antonin Artaud.
And then Bunuel made French movies. Maybe they were all French. But not the Mexican ones.
And Eisenstein made a Mexican movie. Reel good that.
And why is I talking funny and sayings nothing?
Because I been steeped like a tea bag in pure genius.
Ain’t my genius. I’m just the reader. The watcher. The observer.
And then somebody gets Schrödinger‘s cat. And they hurt it real bad.
Nobody ever asks what Schrody’s cat was named. And it so happens Foot Foot.
Like the song by The Shaggs? I think so, my pal.
So lemme tell you.
If I go on many more tangents like a line glancing off a sphere I will lose something important.
No no…I keep going.
Because my glasses fogged up with tears from crying. When I had to get up to pee.
Later. The retarded girl. In the Krokus shirt. But when she’s jogging back and forth.
That’s my family.
Yeah, for a minute I saw the whole totality of my lineage.
And it really made me cry. Prematurely.
But mostly it’s when the rain falls.
It looks like the most heavenly scene.
I’m Mr. Rabbit. I took a lot of risks.
A pink life. That’s being vulnerable. Listening to Tchaikovsky.
I skated down the hill on a banana like Jesus Christ.
One little pebble and my face is fucked for weeks.
One passing car and I’m Jello. J E LL O.
But take a deep breath because you’ve shivered shirtless.
God damn. You’ve got pink rabbit ears and knuckle tats.
You weren’t meant for this world.
And when the perfect storm comes—-
a lifetime of pain melts away.
For a second.
You’re not the freak.
For a second somebody wants you.
And you want them too.
And, really, it’s just fun.
That life has dealt you this miracle.
It makes your Xenia, Ohio bearable. Just.
Life is transitory. Crackling like a wet transistor.
Here today be here not tomorrow.
