Land Slide

It's like standing at the side

of the road

at a crossing

I can hear the crowd coming

but they haven't seen me

some are three joined together

giant and having a great time

growing more mouths

human telephone networks

two are talking

but in opposite languages

multiplying the closer they get

someone shouts skinny bitch

a woman says she knows

who I am

and wonders if I've seen

the posters all over town

saying I'm a fake and a fraud

they're loud as the traffic now

I shrink to keep myself

on the curb

they have concrete necks

and glued in eyes

and I watch as they

push me under the wheels
