Style Power

reading how you only become a body
when the tools of the law begin
to exert themselves over the flesh
that then becomes your body

Cat Power singing
at the same time
never give away
never give away your body

and build your style of being
out of thrifted jean jackets and
duct tape arrows pointing up
busk and bask in the underbelly

clothes might still foil
the strongarm of the law


  1. lolz is for one phrase in particular! I want to read about when you become a body.

  2. Me too! And I just got the LOLZ! Also STYLE = POWER! YES!!!
