The Story:

Birthed from the rot of America's wound.

Borne unto all that was ever good,

ever evil,

I am the living example of a human being.

Watch me self-destruct.

I've since left America's Open Hand,

to witness her remaining 49 limbs go numb,

cease function,

Ne'er again to know her pain,

her pleasure.

I am a living artifact,

America's dream personified.

Sanctimonious,

on my faithful horse Old Major,

the Swedish equine,

a Volvo 740,

borne 195,000 miles ago,

I ride.

We carry dead Addie in a USPS box,

Labeled "Mom" in black felt-tipped.

She sits quietly under my dirty clothes,

until it's decided to open her up.

Watch us ride by,

Addie, Major and I.

Man, we are great.
