‘Burnt at the Stake’ We are talking heads. Always frivolously apologizing, speaking superficially, Talking ourselves to death. Fuck us. We don’t know what it means to live. We are willing to wait in lines at Starbucks, To sit through commercials, to watch our lives pass us by in a dull vapid way, striving for synthetic happiness and it’s all programmed in the T.V. Guide. Fuck us. Start a war against yourself. Against your reality. But most of all--Burn the damn guide.
