Windows (1) — Agony

Dedicated to Ludwig.

«you came out, she said,
and then you kicked this guy’s car
and then you threw yourself into this bush
you crushed the whole
bush,
I don’t know what your agony is all
about …

… listen, she said, do you want me to
leave ?

after she left I picked up a chair and
threw it out of the window. there was much
glass and the screen was broken
too.

How many dead beasts float and walk from Wales to
Los Angeles ?»
