They say if it's crowded all the better but lately you can't even stay up late
and the noises and bright lights don't make your vision swim
just buckle and double like knees or iron or any support really
and it does come apart, and they do always come apart
because 'points of articulation' is just code
that says "a man made this so other men can bend it"
or break it
with baseball bats or even just their hands
with a guitar, a beer bottle and the silence from the last record.
