Pizza and HBO

this house

looked like it was

just punched in the face

and everybody inside

it

just got punched in the face too


all their faces

fucked

up and

this house


it had lost its

sense of humor

it already had a spotty

record

but then


there you go

and suddenly

you're looking

at some skunk-

lawyer

telling you


well

you don't have a place to live


that house

was just, well,

shit

a collection of trophies

melted into

a shape


that house

was

a living room lamp

in a ditch in

muncie indiana


that house

was a can of soup

a goddamn sleeping-bag

a statler brothers song

recorded on

a cassette tape

slightly warped

in the backseat of

a really shitty

1971

station-wagon


at one time

it was

something else

i guess

a palace to live in

someplace to unload

your groceries into

happy times

like

pizza and hbo

ok?

pringles and

who's the boss?


somebody had a bunch of dreams

inside

that house

completely random ones

about

reptiles and kmart

about

xrays and thunder

about

candles and underwear


and then that

special someone

woke up

with a

black eye
