A Butcher Flowering Deserts by A.J. Kaufmann

strictly European
that’s summed up!

chainsmoking my way through love
lovelonging my smoke
through life
someone called me duke
I barely talked off his time

I sense trouble
on the digital autobahn
in those horrorfueled ages
moving is an unnecessary option
quite dangerous at that

I sense trouble
on the still life station
that’s why I leave s-bahn
moments
before the splash

I barely have the time to laugh
at my first American jokes
or ancient
2002 tape reels
watering
knowledge

kiddo
that’s all I am, still
strictly
European

maracassing through myth

a
butcher
flowering
deserts
