Ejaculating Out Of My Thoughts, A Poem by Chris Russell

You asked me once why I was so, you know, like me,

and I gave you some answer meant to have you

drop the subject for a present you could like the view of.

Well, that was a lie, even if it was a convenient one.

The truth is, I’m a child who believes Time to be

something malleable in my head,

and Place to be something that flows out of me.

At any moment, and without warning I’ll ejaculate

out of my thoughts in a force that’s equal in pressure

to the sensation of being 8.

How wild and divine and eternal I feel, each time

I simply run between moments, trying not to

get grabbed.

So, to answer your question,

I seem to have this weird kind of way about me,

because being the nut ball that I am,

I have to try and remember myself differently all the time,

and it’s getting harder and harder to do this

the better I get at it.
