effluvium

a rancid stench
fluctuating
this effluvium of
the corpse of
childhood abandon
the last wafting notes
motes of spore
from youth gone sour
sweat streaked
instabilities
a haze of degrading
hormonal rescindency
bleaching promises
shells long discarded
in cardboard boxes
far from the kiss
of the turbulent seas
a pollution of
greasy rancidness
effluvium dripping
from the moldering
corpse of dream
