GUN CRAZY (Part Twelve)


I'll join your Public Witness Program
yeah, sure, I'll testify
you put me in a new place
with a new face

I'll trade you a lot
I'd trade you a lot
for a lot like that

a fresh-cut lawn
a fresh-cut head
on a boy my age
in a sunshine-freckle halo
on a substitute
sweetened a bit
to enjoy it this time

No Halloween

You've really struck my imagination, Jason. Incredible, inspired, disturbing and beautiful.
