Let’s take a selfie

Let’s take a selfie

blood always
tastes better splattered
on the dance floor
slightly intoxicated
under a pink disco ball
where your distress
and misfortunes meet its maker,

a beat appears and
another follows suit
causing the herd
to conjure and conjoin
and make questionable
life decisions

along for the ride, I
toss my blue
collar out,
reach for my
phone, and
take selfies with
and i do it
all while looking
tragically sexy
in cheap cologne
damaged eyes
and cutoff levi jeans
