new from above/ground press: ESTRO FUNKY: FIELD NOTES, by MLA Chernoff

MLA Chernoff

Alright, fuck.
You got me.
I’m tired,
I don’t have enough
Vitamin D to
project my verse.
I’m much more inclined
to projectile vomit
into otherworldly girths.
No methodology can
alchemize my moors
out from these got dang
obscurantist stores.
You know why?
Because feelings are
and all games
