I built a cardboard house, wallpapered in gay porn,
as big as my mom and dad’s garage.
I tried to reason with a screaming naked man
who chased my friends out of a house
I inherited magic.
I gave a woman I was dating one of my teeth.
And I went to a bar dressed as the Pope.
I hosted fencing parties on the roof of my old apartment building
I inherited magic.

One time I couldn't sleep
I couldn't sleep for 2 weeks
I felt a dread so deep I was on another plane.
The therapist told me it was manic / bipolar
And that was grandpa's disorder
You might think it was tragic but maybe
I inherited....
I inherited magic.
