    In the next hour this will go sour.
    already a spore tower,the giotto foam
    of bread gone to a mold
    I cannot live on, not alone.

    Manna and mayo, toasted
    One minute. I finish–post mayo
    gone poisonous and grey on me.
    I toss it all, save my own life.

    All before my 10am rerun of Miami Vice.

    in the next hour
    the mood will lighten
    and our souls will glow
    as we retire the morning
    and the happiest of hours
    will go strait to my head.

    In the next hour, thousands of people will be born and die
    There will be wars and peace, revenge and forgiveness
    While I attempt to learn tessellation from and old textbook .

    Before I die,
    I have to become a man,
    I have to become a selfless man,
    I have to become a married man,
    I have to become a christian man,
    I have to become a humble man,
    I have to become a man of wisdom,
    But as a man all I find myself to be,
    is a man who fleeds under a rock,
    floating down the river as if the,
    river will fulfill all of these things!
