rapping alone, dark loft drinking dark beer everyone you know staring naked into mirrors i built a blanket fort to hide from my fears everyone you know staring naked into mirrors one time i bathed naked in a jungle stream befuddle teen drama stars with muddled schemes cuddle queens who like to play chess and eat springrolls the motto's probably obey less and fling soul sandwiches i think i'm tao lin + nat king cole my lingo is gingko tree organic spring flow Bingo! Congrats, you won a telescreen This is an elegy for melancholy pedigrees The purple teletubby snapping selfies in Tel Aviv Bella from Twilight in a knife fight with Extra P c'est la vie, ships comprised of peanut butter and celery Jester-freak but fit in this void like pit in nectarine Or mango plum cherry peach mulberry kumkwat Dumb thoughts like a polyglot writing a fun plot In which spongebob stares so long at a sun spot That he realizes he's lived his whole life on a lunchbox I punched thought-policemen in their petuitary glands and lived half my life vagabonding in imaginary lands no oculus rift, sent an innocuous .GIF of an ostrich's hip to Waka Flaka's flip phone then slipped home on a quick drone while watching an eclipse float over a crypt, whoa rapping alone, dark loft drinking dark beer everyone you know staring naked into mirrors i built a blanket fort to hide from my fears everyone you know staring naked into mirrors Bought a mans best friend robot, disabled piss mode Thawed a self-indulgent melancholy after my bliss froze Google image search the painting 'corporate kiss', bro Then listen to some chopped n screwed jadakiss flows A pyramid made of crisco and nabisco products Surrounded on all sides by San Francisco startups Selling virtual prada to flocks of Episcopal mamas Picture me rolling down a hill with a miserable llama We roll faster and faster with perpetual scowls then start a funk band called the electrical nouns Signifying the power of words to aid or kill I'm Lao Tzu from the block like J-Lo, chill Pelting Ronald Reagan with potato peels I'm Neil-Gaiman-answering-phones-for-NATO real I'm okay though, reading Plato in Wako ... Also naked going ape shit trying to re-define the sacred Deconstruct the matrix to see how map becomes territory The Baudrillardian hyperreal, that's a scary story "Very gory" I comment after watching all of human history on GodTube Odd dude who's got few qualms with all fools Lifestyles are like your friend count on Facebook in that who cares If I were preparing a fruit salad, I'd cube pears I'm too scared of needles to give blood but one time I scuba dove With the power to bring forth the day's riches, call me Super Poem "Luke is home!" Padme calls as Darth Vader grills veggie burgers Princess Leah dances in the living room, she's become a heavy twerker Steady, surfers, coast like Johnny tsunami Open your eyes, they've gone and branded water, Dasani

if you're sentient raise your paws to the galaxy if you're sentient raise your paws to the galaxy if you're sentient raise your claws to the galaxy surrender to the mystery, release your maladies if you're sentient raise your paws to the galaxy if you're sentient raise your hooves to the galaxy if you're sentient raise your flaws to the galaxy surrender to the mystery, actually do that actually An open Macbook glows in a dark basement "Be the glitch that you want to see in the matrix" Some dude once tweeted that and I liked the meme So I'll propagate it onward while munching a mangosteen A cute (acute) kid who tries angles (triangles) like isosceles You other squares are obtuse, Euclidean geometry Your pastor's homily can't tell you what existence means That, you've got to determine alone, it's tragicomedy But chill, man, actually, that's, like, an opportunity I think it was Nabokov who said "Create your own reality!" So I bought real estate in an imaginary meadow Built a fun love-castle and said fuck you to Gipetto Now I use silly non sequitur raps that make people laugh to propel myself to lands unsullied by man's language traps you can't vanquish that even if you smite my physical frame Because I'm everything at once like long-haired mystics explain In various texts that you haven't read because you discount the obscure in favor of cutting coupons for Walmart discounts And that's cool, do your thing while I contemplate this wall art I think it's saying something about how we cherish tall smart handsome straight famous white males more than other humans Everyone is equally beautiful and equally stupid I watch Home Improvement to consider its targeted demographic Then chuck my television over the edge of the Grand Canyon Then climb down and clean it up because fuck littering For me plastic bottles on sea shores tend to be embittering if you're sentient raise your paws to the galaxy if you're sentient raise your hooves to the galaxy if you're sentient raise your flippers to the galaxy surrender to the mystery, release your maladies if you're sentient raise your paws to the galaxy if you're sentient raise your feelers to the galaxy if you're sentient raise your claws to the galaxy surrender to the mystery, actually do that actually Stare into the void until the void stares into me It's all one burrito, man, I'm yung Tat Tvam Asi Listening to KOOL A.D. and reading Murakami Might transport me to dreamscapes complete with purest swamis "I'm here with Gandhi, what do you have to say to the human race?" "The next time you feel violent just put on a De La Soul tape and smoke some Bob Hope, that will make your soul great." Really you can transmute frustration into poems or pottery Type of dude to do some baffling shit if he won the lottery Probably create an alternative educational institution Then build a sustainable off-grid home to join that movement Donate to the Gates Foundation and inner city art programs Give the rest to the World Wildlife Fund and keep making rap jams Frankly I don't condone delaying that which makes soul glow Because projected ideal futures are illusions like the Truman Show Some humans know things that they can't articulate And some hobos are far wiser than those who matriculate

(malik trips) hola dude, i rearranged some letters for you a lot of dudes say it's tight, but you might say it bores you of course you would man all your top rappers sound the same, dude i can-- sound like-- this-- too but i think it's kind of lame dude i'm sitting on rooftops, reading DBZ and if you kill me in your rap song i'll eat all the senzu beans i am the black james dean with a much better haircut and i wish africa was left alone so we could chill in our mud huts all your friends' brains are like dandelions when it's windy and fuck all these white girls at coachella with red bindies whatever man it's all good i'm sitting in the neighborhood reading DBZ and if you kill me in your rap song i'll eat all the senzu beans uh, yup you could just (lostboyevsky) power level over 9000, goku flexitarian who likes tofu everyone's equal, cool societies lack equity, stupid dark beer and cannabis, zooted music just goes, movement teach me how to human teach me how to human Off his rocker eating jalapeño poppers Disregarding all the lame old scoffers Used to play golf for many hours in hot Iowa summers Then take cover in Delosse's pond Under the covers where I first discovered masturbation's fun In that same basement where we played James Bond On playstation duh That was nightfire Might be mike Myers on a tightwire Dwight McGuire of the trite sires Polite friar passing out bright flyers to white liars by the swing tire fights fires that threaten our nice shire That's planet Earth quest limitless jest infinite caress intimate guess quizzical depth mystical best physical + non-physical soothsayer on the pirate ship vibrant quips climb to violet-tipped rainbows plain clothes no extravagance jazzy fencer who imagines himself as a fuzzy hamster nuzzling out of instinct Freudian hopefully this song gets played like accordian power level over 9000, goku flexitarian who likes tofu everyone's equal, cool societies lack equity, stupid dark beer and cannabis, zooted music just goes, movement teach me how to human teach me how to human

a priest once told me that dogs don't go to heaven that's when i knew his views were flatter than bread unleavened anyone who believes in literal hell is full of shit like seven hundred dirty diapers or an L Ron Hubbard emulator hell is a metaphor for what happens when you repress your nature i think i'm part vapor, part Will Yeats, part Super Saiyan part linguistic matrix, part ape, and part imagination with this macbook prosthetic I feel like a cyborg Yet this neverending story seems magical I'm Falcor I ponder the intergalactic and induce an anaphylactic Shock stare into the heavens and feel like man is so average But tat tvam asi guess we're like Matterhorn massive The atoms that map us are those of mantis and mammoth But we immortalize experience with cameras and Sandisks Seems like we've become demigods via mechanical tactics But how many of us feel something lonely and hollow? Maybe there's more to this than reformatting the matter I invest in animal backflips and sorta fanatical laughter Might be searching for an Atlantis that long ago was subtracted A rapturous communion or contentment with the inner Obsidian midnight guess I'm fumbling for a matchstick Imaginary lines between Jews Muslims and Baptists Catalyze violent loathing, zoinks, misguided madness Until I am cadaver think I'll nibble on a different plum, navi- gate caverns and labyrinths with pacifistic relaxedness Call me sacreligious but I'd like to move beyond labels Not Catholic or American, just a being who wants a sandwich Shit I think my politics are too organic to understand em Like animagus Victor Vasquez shape-shifting into a rabbit Possibly a tragic Aladdin sabotaging the crass glitz Or an abstract abracadabra with homophones and contractions But maybe an ant in amber in a paradoxical pageant Wondering if these gadgets have made us all bat shit

Matter, matter, what the fuck is matter? Please don't give me a scientific answer Matter, matter, holy fuck it's matter walking on a planet and nothing really matters Man I feel so Henry David when I gawk at a tree Balking at Buddha's ape feet, feeling spacey I share this rock with child slaves and Chichen Itza But maybe I just ate a simulated pizza Metaphysics swag, call me D.T. Suzuki Imagining how the eyes of E.T. would construe me I don't know much about being and nothingness But I might just be a stream of Tao loveliness Matter, matter, what the fuck is matter Please don't give me a scientific answer Matter, matter, I'm made of fucking matter soaring through the universe and nothing really matters The way that can be told is not the eternal way I'm Wordsworth in the daffodils taking a personal day Science only explores the falsifiable I'm Terence McKenna eyes wide at the indescribable I'm up with night-terrors of brains floating in vats And if solipsism is truth, then I'm talking to myself, drat I'm also Alan Watts playing hide and seek with Krishna Or Emerson screaming "God exists!" at an atheist picnic But I'm simultaneously Nietzsche retorting that "God is dead!" Whatever THIS is, I think it's all the same wonderbread Matter matter what the fuck is matter Please don't give me a scientific answer Matter matter I just ate some matter In this primate body and nothing really matters Matter matter what the fuck is matter Please don't give me a scientific answer Matter matter I just drank some matter In this primate body and maybe everything matters (Goddess speaks) "All is Tao, Lostboyevsky. Everything and nothing matters. It is the Way of Things. Have compassion, help others. All sentient beings deserve love. And don't forget to laugh. You humans are far too serious. Google "icecube laugh," that lady knows what's up. You'll thank me later. Peace to you now, my zany little Earthling. Yeah. Or something. Goddess shit."

European mutt on A Sysiphean bucking bronco Translated Murakami into the original tongue of Squanto Pronto is when I need you to stop desiring anything The penny brings many things and Buddha knows plenty kings Like that stuff but I say melt the infernal crowns The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao Saussurean linguistic signs all in my journal wow Turn that scowl upside down maybe watch some George Carlin Or go get a Thai massage and feel even more starlit I'm in a bar with Gift of Gab and Mira Gonzalez drinking Oatmeal Stout discussing intergalactic starships I'm in Tuskaloosa eating hummus and wanton soup On the roof of a chicken coop protesting factory farming You're not actually charming if you enjoy dismantling harmless Forest creatures, one time as a kid I shot a small bird for no reason I still feel bad about that, the mind has like seasons And some of those seasons are sorta demented and sadistic If you gotta hurt someone go play GTA or get sado-masochistic In a consensual coitus session with another naked human We're all just naked humans wow I'm breaking through it Breaking through the tendency to resent my out-groups, that is Still can't fathom why Internet people become elaborate catfish Like be yourself, coming from the dude who dons alter-egos I'm eating a maraschino cherry feeling weird like Vaseline scones Composed this rascally poem on the back of the US constitution Like Nick Cage I seem to be of an enigmatic constitution Convoluted city streets make me pine for John Muir's mountain tops One time had a nightmare I was drowning in a sea of growling cops I'm watching Fox and the Hound with Tupac, Doc Oc, and John Locke Feeling like Disney movies' lack of moral ambiguity was damaging Juxtapose suit-clad managers with several squirrels scampering Luxury and pampering are probably really hampering Your quest for Nirvana, so maybe go be a Chris McCandless If I could I'd make John Lennon's assassin eat a blister sandwich Then kiss some syphillis and live for eternity with no bandwidth Because, like, man, you murdered the dude who sang live as one I don't believe in good and bad people but holy fuck You must have been about as aware as a protozoan Like find an ounce of compassion, man, fuck it I'm zoning out hitting a Pax watching 2001: A Space Odyssey Thinking about KOOL AD calling Das Racist a late great race oddity That was a humorous, clever, and accurate statement See me with Young Frankenstein playing Jenga in Dracula's basement We're all just flatulent apes and that's cool like the ex-planet Pluto But power and money corrupt us, you know like that one dude Tuco Salamanca, I think I'm a salamander in a melodrama Because life imitates art, Oscar Wilde thought so, hella commas Of the proverbial variety are recommended in this life thing By that I mean pauses, need space and time, like this life thing I might bring some cream cheese bars to the potluck dinner Got love for Splinter and anyone who doesn't feel like a winner The secret is that this shit was never a competition They just made us think so so we would be nice productive kittens I'm such a frickin goofball playing fooseball in a onesy Against Doug funny and gumbi even though I have a bum knee Pluck me like a gooseberry and savor the crazy flavor Or pluck me like a harpstring and wave with the zany cadence Or pluck me like book from shelf and gaze at the wavy pages Me I'm mating with ancient texts like the ... Vedantic scriptures They were cool long before Socrates the didactic trickster So I guess by modern standards I'm the most anachronistic hipster But like Kierkegaard said "when you label me, you negate me" So don't call me anything just paint me a shade of paisley Live in an art gallery and call it spry performance art I used to tell my mom everything and she'd say I had an enormous heart But right now I'm watching a Smurfs marathon eating foreign tarts Like hoddeok, that's a delicious Korean pastry If you're feeling angsty I suggest you go contemplate a Banksy original, then maybe go read the Dharma Bums Google ad technology is artificial karma son Riff Raff on the radio at the bat mitzvah Picture me rolling rice paper to make scrumptious spring rolls And speaking odd slang that sounds to adults like dumbshit lingo I'm on Uranus playing plinko with john cage and Pink though Thinking too big to fail nah, didn't Titanic sink bro?

ennui leads to a fifth and a sixth beer lying on hard wood. "how did i get here?" ceiling cracks intricate, world's a great labyrinth take a sip, cheers Type of dude to accidentally drop something then leave it there Type of schlub to sleep in when I probably gotta be somewhere I'm snapchatting a rose juxtaposed to a city backdrop Wondering if it has to be a world of haves and have nots idk, I decay like elk and dandelions universe a pretty scary place, but damn it's vibrant What if I just rap to have fun? What then? Trust pens to just bend my world into some lush zen Distrust men with expensive watches and scowls follow your inner moonlight like the dude who wrote howl ennui leads to a fifth and a sixth beer lying on hard wood. "how did i get here?" ceiling cracks intricate, world's a great labyrinth take a sip, cheers I'm listening to Mogwai reading Wind-Up Bird Chronicle Feeling how Whitman felt when he wrote about the astronomer Figuring I could publish worlds of words under a moniker Or do a normal thing, get married, Chandler and Monica For now I'm ghost trapped in beat, phantom of the opera Discordianist Pope who used to think a lot about God and stuff Harmonic jazz cynic playing my sardonica Kudos if you can catch em all like Onnix, bruh Intoxicated art for Nietzsche like we just popped Ciroc Keeps me in opposition to power no panopticon Malicious sir-haunt-a-lots in vans like soccer moms Got me feeling this thing called man really oughta rot But then again we're all natural like how impalas run So I guess what's tragic is organic, man that's a lotta thought But then we've also got the Thich Nhat Hanhs and the mozeltovs So maybe we're cool and alright and we don't gotta stop But we need to get our brain game up like Tom Hobbes or Spock Because we often look parodic pop; is the Office on? Patriarchies tell too many cock tails umm malatov So men walk around thinking they're superhuman, comicon When I was a kid I used to search for frogs in the pond a lot Nowadays in the city feel we live too fast, you know, Ramadan But Just another inexplicable human like your mom and pop So who am I to claim knowledge, um, reconnaissance Just damn, I see us destroy each other and like flog the tots And feel its a cruel farce but don't have the gravitas To be heard so I'll quote the words of Kurt Vonnegut Dammit babies you've got to be kind, promise us I said I guess I'll just quote the words of Mr. Vonnegut Dammit babies you've got to be kind, promise us I said I guess I'll just quote the words of Mr. Vonnegut Dammit babies you've got to be kind, promise us ennui leads to a fifth and a sixth beer lying on hard wood. "how did i get here?" ceiling cracks intricate, world's a great labyrinth take a sip, cheers

about

'FRAGMENTED' is an EP about uncertainty, cognitive dissonance, fragmentation of identity, suffering, heartbreak, and the oft-overwhelming process of attempting to synthesize a coherent worldview or life-meaning from the various intermelding oceans of context and culture through which we swim in 2016. it was "born in a nightmare," as Open Mike Eagle might say.

if you look closely enough, it's also probably about love and fun and peace and laughter and joy and all that good stuff.

it's also about whatever you want it to be about, or whatever it seems to be about to you. i put a lot of me-stuff into this artifact, and i hope it gives you something.

luv,
jordan
