The Daily Poetry Movement

I think this poem is called Garp on Valium by Trister Keane. I am not sure as the book I got it out of is kind of like a huge Zine. It is Semiotext{e} USA. It is an awesome book I picked up one sunny afternoon at a Yard Sale. What if I put on a yard barter? The book is delightful, rare, and falling apart. This is how good books become. I cherish it and lug it around, allowing people quick sneak peaks then hiding it lest it fall apart before i finish reading it. The poem is delighful satire of the whole death car fuck girl backseat mentality. Resist!
GARP ON VALIUM
BY TRISTAR KEANE

It's early August and there must be people
dying somewhere
Because everyone's preening their cars.
Dirt and sweat to get the wax off
So I can see myself.
People with long hair
So no one can see their face
"Hey can I give you a lift somewhere?"

There car was invented so teenagers could have
a place to fuck
And something to do on a boring Sunday
Wax and preen
She puts lipstick on the front grille
Mascara on the windshield wipers
Her nipples stand erect as she wipes the wax off
Up and down
Up and down
Up and down and up and down
She moans as it shines
Glistening- well oiled-smooth-silky
She moans as it ejaculates gasoline to cover her
Glistening-well oiled-smooth-silky
"Congratulations, It's a Buick-
big enough to fuck in."
