a contagion of yawns

sunset suicide
in pink swirls
of burning abandon
the nascent moon
glowers miserly
resting sourly
in an ebon patch
my rice paper skin
an opaque grotesquerie
of undulating sin
a banded sheath of
muscle and bone
glimmering with a
threatening feculence
a dour nightmare
forced upon the
collective psyche
of the dull city
full of sleepy dreamers

i snarl my
simmering rage
at the vacancy
where heaven was
proven a lie
torn in two by
twilight depressions
and a burning lust
to lick the salt
from your flesh
