The Punk In Ti Vo, The Punk in Me by Dennis Mahagin

I told
the punk in me
to turn down
the TV,
and he
answered me
so pseudo
insouciantly,
something
about
parallel ID’s
and temporal
fluidity, courtesy
of Discovery
channel and 2
much Ecstasy.
so I locked up
his mercury
eyeballs with
mine,
shoved my
finger down
his throat,
took him back
in Time,
I beat his punk ass
for not listening to
me …
then said
to get ahead,
it’s OK, hock
my TV.
