from a million fallen birds

you’ve got a million songs
that you’ve never even heard
words that mean nothing
but that’s something
i guess
we can suppress each sing-song
breath
as we take our last one

birds whistling marriage tunes
and dogs eating their own
feces
because it’s all just
shit
words that we can just flush down the
dream hole
and i digress

whimpering cries and heartless
things
like this just take up
hard drive space
until it all fails again
and falls again
into pornographic cyberspace

these million empty songs
doing nothing
just pretend and distend
from their own rotting
insides
besides
we all don’t care
about these floating words
from a million fallen birds
stuffed and on display

from a million fallen birds
