No, it’s not deja vu! It’s another reader poem by Tina Yang, this time in response to the prompt, “If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late”–
Because you’re six inches deep in that sink,
Ole Black Pitch where the light don’t shine.
Because Dick Cavett has thin lips and a tight arse.
Because Stop doesn’t mean, Go Green.
Because big brass generals love up little girls with flowers in hands.
Because Henry Eighth fucked then chopped Anne Boleyn into bits.
Because when that dream screams, HEY YOU. TURN
AROUND. GO BACK YOU BACK TO THE END
your ears fill with crazed laughter and therefore can’t listen.
