quicksilver lament

dip me
headfirst into
a vat of
quicksilver
let the liquid
seep into
my pores

the cold fingers
bond to receptors
madness in
sublime metallurgy
buffering my
synaptic flaws
in mercurial reflections
mirroring all these
supple miseries
defying basic
newtonian law

submerge my
shivering flesh
in silvered demise
a puckered insanity
in ripples of
frantic desire
