sometimes people help you grow so much
that you can't talk to them ever again
speaking from experience, adult coloring books,
easter souvenirs, Evite invitations,
animated tubers, limited editions,
premium canned meat, antiquity,
passage of infantile time,
and regular jobs,
Michael Ball stops into
the crepe shoppe,
so does Chris Toll,
and the new cripple
launches herself
from the four-poster
double bed.
some would call this
to them i would say,
everything from the third
line down.

hey I think that's my syntax in the first two lines.
not that I own any syntax.
if I did I would have to pay a syntax tax.
