it’ll never work between the two of us.
still, we can make a fair exchange out of this.
take a leap of faith with me.
let’s sack this foreign city dry of careless
conviction. tonight, we will perform the greatest
act of entropy mankind will ever know.
do not write me love poems, goddammit, take
your clothes off quick. the unspoken truth behind
the first rule of combat is that courage reacts
with something in the air, oxidizes like a bottle
of beer that’s been left out for too long,
losing potency, losing spirit.
and isn’t that what this world does
to every thing it touches?
every breath we take a submission to decay.
tonight, we will have none of it!
closer now. monopolize your fate
with me. suspend your potential near to mine
enough that they sizzle.
we shall emerge from this cosmic collision
unchanged, unbroken, triumphant mischiefs
