Flower, Punk!-Exploring The Contours Of An Imaginary Genre

their acid cut with too much speed, their sound more foreboding than blissful, they met under television skies on the other side of no direction. they sat in bottles pretending they were in cans knowing their girls weren't right & wouldn't touch them no how. they got busted with charlie brown & the beave for copping dirt weed from uncle fester outside 1313 mockingbird lane while the standells played. finked on by eddie h. & shipped out by uncle sam, napalm nam split their minds open. killed with a living death that forever saw that mocking hysterical joker face in the flowers & sky. they would they were a weed. 

back home eating fatback bacon & spiked cornflakes no one knew their name, no guru would have them, their face did not fit. they drove right past nirvana sipping milkshakes with charlie manson's angels. the mini-skirt blues drove 'em crazy & their seed gone bad. they broke their brains & lost their souls, which like their threads were on installment from sears roebuck. so they goofed on jello in all night cafes until the mind gangsters & the brain police vibed them straight out the room. but if you squint in the wrong direction at sundown you can still see their shadows on the corner eating flowers, haunted hallways & mother's pills.
