i'm looking forward to a flash funeral
if i should die think only this of me
still is a very good line
but where's the tension
if i should die think two or more things of me
possibly in opposition to one another dialectically
adding irony
postmodern refusal to believe
taking the trivial seriously
just twitter it

i'm at this estate sale?
and there are like four pairs of shoes in my size?
and i remember they used to pay like immigrants to break shoes in?
so these shoes are broken in
which references that historic work?
and there's like this thing about you have to walk a mile in someone shoes before you know?
you know?
so i'm like going to walk two miles
one for the immigrant
and one for the owner
in each pair each day?
and document it?
