Poem: Tell the Wolves

the wolves are howling
tell them
I'll be out in a minute.

I just need another second
with these warm sheets
with this serenity
this human self

before I walk out
dress myself in full moon
rip away my skin

and lope away with them

tell the wolves
i'll only be a minute
i just need

to remember what it is to be outside
to be me
instead of this quiet
human mess
between the sheets

tell the wolves
i haven't forgotten
i just need
a minute.

Swiss Army Man: Society is Beautiful, Society is Crap

Swiss Army Man opens with the protagonist, Hank, unable to commit suicide because the dead body that just washed up on the beach won't stop farting. The movie ends with the main character crying with happiness at farts. Stoner comedies wish they could do farts as well as this movie does, and it reaches far past the ambitions of stoner comedy into pure, crazy brilliance.
