when lazarus was brought back
the stars went out
and came back on
like when you have to change a christmas tree light.
when i was younger, there were people who called that sort of event
“the electricity that binds the nation”
and i feel like i’ll never know why.
you should never even think about the icebergs,
for they are always hiding something,
and we don’t need their kind around here anyway.
i took two hundred dollars in fives out of the atm,
because it is happy hour somewhere.
