A subtly sick predilection and she’s into Tender asphyxiation Prophylactic frivolities Exhalation and exclamation She’s all sinews and niceties An epiphany She’s external and a tangled weave At the slightest vibration A soaking wet benediction What is this I hold over thy head Is it fine or superfine? Her legs are taught but slippery Mental burlesque He’s all eyes and mouth and face She’s a master of malleability Chirp and snap and then it swallows you whole His touch is just as fervent As a mesmerist a poet an opportunist Though her stories drive him crazy He’ll suck it out and scrape her lines dry What is this I hold over thy head Is it fine or superfine?
70 lbs. 02:56
She’s luetic or a lunatic All alone in her room She hits her head on the wall Just to feel one thing Just to feel at all Her one phrase is when he invades Stoic cold means he’s coming Set your body down Lay her body down Restrain and watch her scream Seventy pounds of passivity Soon they’ll repaint the walls Beneath her skin she feels things crumbling Deterioration He visits physically most every day Locks the door to her room She’s passionless but she lacks the strength To refuse or remove herself All she feels beneath her skin Atrophy a certain calmness Set your body down Throw her body down Restrain and watch her scream
Buoy 02:39
Fingers all white and your eyes sanguine Oxygen sand and bed seaweed Layers silent something beneath Jellyfish feel but doesn’t sting Come and drag the buoy Down son down son Come and drag it down First there were five thick layers of peace Colossus water how did you find me How did it feel to be him beneath First it was soft then heavy sting Come and drag the buoy Down son down son Come and drag it down Cellophane skin beneath the swell A gasp for breath then all was tranquil
