Selected Poems

On The House


Zack Pieper

 

All My Life
Schlitz signs buzzing
plug in hoof prints
ignore the hot seat
in uncensored pastorals
allowing weird vibes
to flock to me

is this still us
pretending outside
every early shift since
the whole ride to work
stale jargons memorize
the latest pet remedy &
Lexus Hybrid Reference
near the outpost clinging
to sappy shadow grunts
who make us more free
breakfast, nice
