Chained to Hardcore by Aldo Quagliotti

What on hertz
am I supposed to believe?
that electromagnetic waves
are not good for surfing?
that fist-bumping is cool
when you’re cracking down in lies
no hugs are allowed
and love is banned from the streets
public safety, it makes sense
so let’s dance
uninterruptedly in hypothermia
with glances of icy tunes
the tunz tunz of barely an ounce of fat
I’m chained to the hardcore
side of poetry
I love shredding skin
the same way I change my pad with wings
I keep the pinions, a throw the rest away 
Poetry is nothing but desquamation, innit?
