in blood-shift; wet Orpheus
dead to heaven; lost highway
the roadkill of yourself. Your eyes
have killed your sleep.
Thursday Mournings; in red-split October skies
your bed: a pool of pleonasm
rotting pianos; blood-beat stars
the carcass deliverance...
As the dark zodiac madman crunches jawbreaker splits
of tetanus poetry & the sage dynamics
of space libido angels
twisted between the once-catatonic physics
of whirling electron...
Watching argon-chameleons chasing rapid mirage
of all your colours clasped in a vertigo-heavy rainbow
caught in your death-armature
of rotting armadillos.
Then tasting mepacrine nights
lofted in the fat buzzsaw
Excursive – docile xenon
blinking from a plague of trapdoor
where beasts cower & men growl
as the Gemini twins exchange
with the gullible darkmirror
their hair thawed
At once…crude polyanthus. Death scuffed
to dryad dreams
outsized, the goliath cargo multissipates
the mutiny of my fate drifts
into broken whale bone kingdom
& a cylcops shark...
Nestled in the cranium of slathering lust
Beauty carcass, soft as a crown of snakes
Some acute viper-kiss.
With snake eyes calling - I’ll gamble for love
A gambit-move, galvanized
Where I trace the smooth skin
Conceit bound by memory
She coils syllables
The way venom is her...
She sees: a symbiosis of love & hate. Tattoo fear on a knuckleheaded
face. Moon prophecies alighting yellow-fever burning jaundice in the frozen fires.
Magneto worlds colliding in lost electrons & solar furies.
She sees: eye shadow desire & candy lips contagious. Toy soldiers in a heartbeat...
& empty as a wasps’ nest
The finite honeycomb
Where I wait
To fill you – a black hole
Held in this
Typical necrolatry of space
In the dumb-ringed residue
Of your ruttish skin.
& I will sting
With the kisses of hornets
Caught in the beehive
Of your sweet...
like clowns with knuckledusters cracking
their funhouse mouths to ring-a-lings of madness
swallowing the rhetoric of paunch-heavy baboons
swelling like evil balloons; barking...
this dumb fresco on the murky walls
this scalpel-wretched gonzo, scattershot
as the scales of a demented mermaid:
how I wish I could swim like you,
breathe like you....
Behind closed doors
& even madder politicians
plot the bleak alchemy of nuclear chemistry,
(someone’s pushed the ‘red’ button in their hazardous minds..)
& shaky fingers point
like a witch from Macbeth....
In a necropolis of sandcastles
The magma snail sighs
& a tsunami starts to rise
Like a knuckleheaded jack-in-the-box.
In the antediluvian poetry of rhetorical baboons
All bullyrag & apeshit
Man cries; moonshot
& myopic in the mordant dance
Of screwtop skeletons rutted on...
Earth-bound to an eerie planet stasis;
We watch the junkie drool
In an estuary of existentialism
Thru rivers of needles
Splinters of the anti-Christ, or
The scum of vein juice fresh
On a brown warped lip.
Nothing is xpected of us.
We are shrapnel on the playground
We are dead kids...
It’s a game we play. A fatality of words
Cut by the blade of a tongue as it slices
Through the truth like the great thrust of a guillotine
Before the guessing is complete.
Hiding in brazen smiles, long hair unmistakable
Found in a boxroom that’s withered within the soul.
A word game...
Carved in the pithy of my boxroom darkness
With eyes of a Sandman; sprinkled in the sulcus grooves
Of xeric-edged suicidal gloom.
Ragged as a swagman in swage block weights of heathen bodies
Like anvil-forged scrapes of swastika hate tattooed
Into the crevice of a mind's...
During the last Exodus of the Demon Wolf 3016
The Blood Soldiers were finally released
From the cryogenic chambers,
From the lab of Psychomentrophy
Brought forth like the ghosts of space Trojans,
Unto the battlefield
To eliminate the changeling breeds.
With their arm bolts raised,...
So Cupid went awol
- a typical ‘Cupid stunt’
when all the lovers had burned out
or choose the wrong one.
His misdirected arrows
hit the target in the back. No such luck
as love at first sight. This violent...
