When Irrelevant Seems Germane

06/12/08

how can you be such an ass?

this seems like an imperative,
when in fact, it is an artistic
statement, preceded by years
of training and practice.

clean the garage or no sex tonight.

this also seems an impending allegation,
lacking germane context, but in fact
it is more precise than any
weather forecast. accented with glare
and condescending tone.

where the hell have you been?

can best be described as a philosophical
premise, stuck between capitalism and
socialism. an adventure in remembrance.

i usually respond:
where’s the remote?
