FREEWRITING EXERCISE #99

words scrawled on an unknown wall
last names taken without context
faces as smooth as a washboard
mingling in a sea of cotton buds
and in the air there is capitalism
that quiet + usual summer bloom
as we walk down the red carpet
of suburbia and middle-class living
and everyone is dressed and draped
in a thick viscous layer of every
conceivable form of advertisement
I think I will buy a watch tomorrow
just because I can and I will slowly
continue to die at an astounding rate
at the very least I’m taking you with
me to Disneyland at some point
everyone loves a copyright monopoly
Love I don’t know where I’m going
with any of this truth be told
if the truth is ever told, anyway
on my eyes white cartoon gloves
I feel the crowd parting to point
I am a clown I am a clown I am a clown
Clown world clown world clown world
Nobody is worth not laughing at
and nobody is worth treating seriously
as we all cram ourselves into the world’s
smallest clown-car and gracefully
careen ourselves off every cliff

Freewriting Explanation: Every day, Valen shall use 5 minutes to write completely unprompted and uninterrupted, letting the words lead the way. There is no end purpose to each piece, but rather, the pieces are allowed to develop naturally in their own way. The pieces are then uploaded without edits.
