an improbable assassin


they experiment with microwaves
sending subliminal text messages
and messing with my dreams via wifi

I wake up in a criminal sweat
wondering what in the world I had done
these past three nights

secret agent men keep knocking on my door
at all hours of the day
undercover cat pleading for me to open up
so she might escape the madness

of course I refuse to answer to anyone
feeding the kitty golden treats
and spending my days googling
searching for elusive guru
who can restore my identity
and cleanse me of my killer status

  1. This rocks my world. It’s my fave so far.

  2. Especially these sections:

    “I wake up in a criminal sweat”

    “undercover cat pleading for me to open up
    so she might escape the madness
    of course I refuse to answer to anyone
    feeding the kitty golden treats
    and spending my days googling
    searching for elusive guru”
