imbibed riffs #2

at what point did happenstance
become a neural life form
allowing awol journeys to survive
in a cesspool of false consciousness
bacterial metaphors bleep across
the mindís inherent screen alive
the protocolís been swept out
with the morning paper and the roaches
ďmythic proportionsĒ sounds cool
if youíve never been to mexico
salient protagonists reek of tequila
when the desert yields transient footprints
cop a plea is always the best out
though john locke might not concur
frisk me in substantive objectivity
but donít touch me "there" . . .
and donít mash my cigarettes
