The most approachable and easily digested of all my 'mature period' epics. Reading this back it becomes clear to be how brilliant this really is. Certainly the greatest human artwork to have emerged from the lockdown Period. It is very profound beneath the surface and will change the lives of those who penetrate it's secrets

It’s funny I liked it. It made me laugh about three times. My favourite bits were Universal sandwich and the karmic expectations after throwing pennies to a beggar. It felt quite American with some of the references, diners and roller skates. I thought about Philip k dick quite a bit when reading. I’m sorry I don’t know how to review poems

I stole his Pret a Manger vision and turned it into the Universal Sandwich
 
That homogeny is why McDonalds and coke work, the ability to deliver on mass a distinct product that’s exactly the same again and again, with a strong and simple enough branded environment around it which stands for nothing but a kind of vague positivity, can go anywhere and exist alongside everything

And allows you to reloop an instant. Come back to a point of security. Anchored.

Anchoring in the familiar. An island of stilled time, it's parameters known.

i liked this poem a lot as well. in fact i kept thinking i should reread it. maybe now that it's got its own thread i'll actually follow through on that.
