a universe in my mouth
with thirty clashing planets
at war with each other

from the void is the one and true god
—they pulled all four for faulty reasoning
the universe in my mouth
is young and timeless

Randomness: Oh my goodness, thank you; I am sure I will learn…
art is about breaking the rules, not following them…
knowing how not to
follow the rules is an art—
write outside the lines
who told you there were rules,
now ask, who told them…they…why?!
