i never understood this...
why would some driving
a black Mercedes, honk,
apparently recognizing me?

have people become subdued
to... looking for friends
in strangers drinking
beer while walking
in the night?

never mind...
  this, that, and the other....
pointing...
toward and from
"thinking" outside the box...
let's nuance
what "thinking", "outside", the "box"
actually implies...

αθεα -
           don't know the specifics,
but it's Greek...
so... but it's Greek...

    i translate that as:...
oh... wait...
   VAT... not FAT... i.e. that
            and VER.... and not FER...
i.e. there...

****, there was another one
of these unexplored graphemes
in the English language...
V'eh point,
  not F'eh point...
              
like... what's the difference
between Φ and Θ?
an iota... and a locked door...

cheap joke? yeah... cheap joke...
more like a joke that became
a choke...

so it's like...
i Θink about ΦilosoΦy?
or I R?
Timberland style?
**** gets confusing...
   like...
          is this Wahhabi not wasabi
in pseudo-Korean?
what... you mean
that penicillin horseradish from
old squinting eye?!
that ****?!

oh... you didn't know that not all
white people have inherited
colonialism?!
no? want a tissue?!
          these tricks don't work on me...
you want to cite ancestry...
i'll give you the three names
of my former "fathers"...
Russia... Prussia... Austro-Hungary:
or... Habsburgs, for short...

as i'd tell anyone:
now... take your ****...
and move along.

            the only "thing" that's
to become undermined psychology
is an octopus...
oh look... you scared the poor thing...
lucky for me... she just
squirted enough venomous-ink
into the water...
and... oh look...
a blank space...
kind of like a brick wall...
but more refined, like Beelzebub's eye...
a myriad of a kaleidoscope -
which implies: enhanced splintering...

but seriously...
the whole concept of:
to think outside the box...
      what box is there to begin with?
what's with all the specific requirements
to "think" an "outside" for?

sure... if you worded it as:
now i don't even remember...
oh, right...

to think outside of a box...
   but there's just too much cascading
prompt with the direct article,
the verb-impetus, which,
gravitates toward using a direct article...

F'eh / V'eh point...
     given...
to actually "think" outside the box,
is to... think... about, a box...

αθεα...
                which is a goddess i mind...
to "counter", or, rather,
coincide / compliment αθενα...

so yeah... take your post-colonialism
******* elsewhere...
    unless you're an Ukrainian...
or Lithuanian, Latvian or Estonian...
bye bye.
