In seeking unique directions
in which to take artistic expression
I have begun to experiment
with substances that abuse my system
so that I learn more about myself,
and my endurance
(in certain regards).
I have started drinking Tabasco
straight from the bottle
and exploring the maximum Twinkies
I can consume in one sitting.
I have discovered how many ounces of steak
it takes to produce the sweats
and how many glasses of rhino milk are required
to get drunk enough
to forget I’m drinking rhino’s milk.
what I have uncovered.
What I have learned about myself
will be incredibly useful
as I consider
how to spend my remaining eight weeks alive.
(it’s all the Twinkies)
