kid in the corner (with new age instructions at the end).

angst
despair
rebellion
satan
lipstick

the kid’s in the back,
sitting in the corner,
trying really hard
not to fit in,
to stand apart,
outside of the crowd.
only to realize,
it’s so much easier
amongst all the copies of copies.

i close my eyes
and float above,
imagine then
discovering
an ancient island.

that kid in the back
in the corner,
who pretends to be
a stranger,
becomes just like all of them;
shopping at the mall,
garments for the uniform
to better play the part
of alienated youth.

i close my eyes
and float above
and whisper to escape.

naked
blank
bare
empty
vacant
hollow
breathe
burn
phoenix
flash
flames
catharsis
resurrect
naked
