poetry is suicide in verses of dismay

poetry by
a corruption
of culmination
trawling this
stagnant stream
of dead dreamers
casting nets
for milk-eyed
lurkers beneath
a thick layer
of subcutaneous
heart shit

this fecund
assortment of
with rusted hooks
fleshy mechanical
pumps affixed to
leaky tear ducts
forcing fluid
from ocular woe
to ovulatory

carving chum
from scar laced lies
poetry by
cognition in
clouds of dreamthistle
interlaced in
passionate painlashes
an obscurity
of oblong despair
