Will It Sell?
Is that all you’ve got to say?
Rarely have I seen you at such
A loss for words. Is it something
About the way I told the story
That bothers you, that doesn’t ring
True? Well listen, I’m not averse
To taking some other point of view,
Yours for example, there could be worse
Fates, though I can’t think
Of any at the moment. I’d have to get
Inside your skin, and let myself sink
Into the mush that is your mind,
With its obsession with markets,
Awards, first splashes, that kind
Of thing. Will it sell? Fuck
That, I’d rather do it myself,
The alternative being to suck
At the public tit, that’s a bit much.
