Here Is Where I Almost Died


With my brain on a frying pan

I sit down and fry

Crying out "where is Duncan?"

I don't know why

The trees turn into gnomes

And they point their fingers and laugh

While I'm walking down Telegraph

Flashing people as if I were naked under my coat

Then thee ambulance arrives

And now I'm still at the bench

Eating leaves

And he flashes his light into my eyes

And I see his light as he tricks me on-

-To thee ambulance, and I go lay on

The gurney, being taken for a ride

When we finally arrive to Alta Bates

I am cursing the homo-rainbow as I go

The next thing I know, my trip is done

Oh, what a waste

Of sixty bucks

And a watch

And a beanie I left 'cause it didn't look like mine
