Ubiquitous Destruction

by Jake Thompson

sometimes I just wanna throw a brick across the room

see what happens—

glass shattering, exploding everywhere

glistening blue shards littering the floor

ubiquitously 

chocolate milk stained on the walls

falling down

dripping down

drying to a sticky

thick substance

whatever’s left of the house — seems rather odd

throw a mac across the room—smack the wall

stomp it to pieces—screen bits and such 

yearning to permanently become one

with the carpet

the now obsolete technology—smashed to pieces

pieces pieces 

smashed to pieces

screaming

maniacally

whilst spraying the house with fire retardant—

lost his mind, himself

the dust remnants—nearly covering all surfaces

penetrating every crevice, was too ubiquitous

a work of art, really

take a photo of that

that’s some Andy Worhol shit —

the mess morphs into not just madness but a 

maniacal masterpiece

it’s hard to see such catastrophe in that light

but 

it’s glorious

a work of art, really

glistening blue shards

littering the floor

chocolate milk stained on the wall

falling down

dripping down

the dust

covering all surfaces

penetrating every crevice

ubiquitous

it was beautiful
