why i do not fear death

an asshole is more
than a concept

more than the heavenly
hell from where

ginsberg's hell's angels
fly out on wings

of opened beer &
vaseline

more than the fleshy
centre of pleasure

retentive or expulsive
or better yet both

an asshole is more
than always saying

what you think
having too much

to drink & doing
things with your

pen that many others
would not dare

do with their tongues
for all it's worth

but why
an asshole can bleed

and need
and shiver

& be many silent
secret things

never cry
no one knows

and this is
my friends

precisely why
an asshole can

never die
i suppose
