FAUXETRY- guillaume morissette

exclusive is just another word for lonely.
my penis is exclusive.
my penis is just another word for lonely.

full circles in poems are great.

utility belt, utility belt.
should I get fired for being the least happy person at work;
or should offices strive to achieve perfect mood balance amongst employees;
is mood discrimination also a form of discrimination;

it feels like what I would like is not a relationship as much as
celibacy minus loneliness.
my penis is celibacy minus loneliness.

in the last decade, the number of diagnosed cases of dementia
is far lower than what I expected it to be.

tuna is good for the mood.
I refuse to eat meat.
my bad mood is good for literature.
my penis is good for tuna, maybe.

full circles in poems are great.
