No Matter What Sign You Are

The Asian Century wasn't supposed to start like this.
I put down rebellion with good ketchup violence,
Some exiled text from THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE
In what became a ruptured anurism, a grande dame honored at lunch.
Nasdaq fell & I'm at home with the kids, my beautiful Ramone Dee Dee
& my shy mother Sandy. A mother's love is so special.
Hey Mama my heart belongs to you... & The Sherry Netherlands also
But the bellboy at The Sherry Netherlands is tough love
& smarts with a Chinese visibility like hats. A dream & I was sketching
In this heinous poem, I cried Larry, that I was falling
Gorgeously. He stuck a thumb in my ass, said "sleep it off kid."
