sitcom

Stefan Mohamed


the setup is fairly straightforward

we are drunk caterpillars
semi-cocooned in mutant coral
our room in a state of permanent
almost-collapse

a million eyes instead of walls
blinking wet
swamp for carpet
popping thick

there is a constant
ululating whine
a constant
gut-quaking
rumble
a constant chitter chitter
of glow spiders

they always steal our stuff

you can see the sea
through the gap
layers of tar
rippling
stubborn sharks
grifting
dead ships
sinking

i am hyperactive
deeply, deeply insane
five mouths
screaming murder rhymes

you are depressed
always crying
oilslick tears
casting bedraggled rainbows
on your dried out skin

i promise
if you stick with it past the first few episodes
it gets really good
