UGLY DUCKLING PRESSE
Stop

 

The only way left to be radical in the United States
Creep like light on a shitty
disco ball in a bar’s back room
An experimental theater
Imagine no one passing
In World of Warcraft my hippogryph
beats like maracas
I have arrived in the heart of the night elf kingdoms
I enchant weapons as a zen master scribe
