no one gets to ride the unicorn without paying the fee

 
dance naked in the
neon glow
 
everyone can get
high
 
not everyone gets
to survive the fall
 
the great ones will
have you believe
this wonderful
utopia is right
beyond that ridge
 
the rest of us
understand there
is evil in every
dip in the valley
 
remember the lost,
haunted eyes
 
broken spoons
instead of sea
shells
 
a coup with just
one bloody needle
 
no one gets to ride
the unicorn without
paying the fee
 
god isn’t even a
fucking concept
on these streets
 
thankfully, my child
was aborted before i
ever had the chance
to think of a name
