17. IT WASN’T OUR FAULT, IT WAS POMEGRANATE

a grenade is a french pomegranate, so
throw one in the midst of your enemies

because everyone’s doing better
when they’re burst up and spatter pink

a myth’s a high horse with a worn-in saddle, so
choose one that the shoe fits

because you’re lazy days, you’re lies
sleeping spaghetti in the afternoon

feeling optimistic about death by asteroid

we can say hey, it wasn’t our fault this time
hey, we made the myth about the dinosaurs

we believed in lizards like skyscrapers
taller than fir trees and firmer than rock

they say adam’s apple was really a pomegranate
does that mean your throat’s ready to explode?

without dictionaries, it’s hard to remember

listen: what else could you believe
if you really put your mind to it?

there are 613 seeds in a pomegranate, and
it only takes one to make it the whole world bang
