Hegemony Through Perspex
I am plagiarised scum.
Every day I paint the smudges your walls
Collecting spit, dead cells
Think lipstick, a dried curl on frosting.
I like to come to you at night,
When you are clear of congestion
(ugly? I know, it’s a by-product)
Lick the gravel. Hint of diamond
Cut; I was a frog. Bulbous,
Tasting blueblood, mechanical riches
Cast from the molten ore, Scavenger abounds
What is significance? – I am to you is to them is to me
Squeeze the wax from the polecat’s ears
Drag out thick wire mesh of brain Ambivalence, fuck you ambivalence
Pull fat sausage guts, pustules steeped in vinegar
They’re behind me, spit, howl for blood.
To taste that cold gun metal
Moulds each ligament of your mail, each burnished plate.
Stuff your pearls down your oesophagus,
“We regret to say that we cannot accept –”
Harshly pulsates, mottled crab mountains on a shit-stained envelope
Why do I come swallow so quickly?
Nuts and bolts in the back – Put up your Dukes!
Lions fuck every fifteen minutes
Barbed vegetable, my weapon of choice
Caught writhing on a fingernail,
Don’t waste your fears gripping away at broken strands
Strands broken bite pull the weed
Raw, tempered steel feathers
Oculus – Boiled, blistering, torrid
Crush your china teeth on silk.
“An ordinary resting heart beat ranges from 60-100 beats per minute.”
Puer – devour, gorge, feast.
Beautiful girls. I hate beautiful girls with warm ochre glow, exquisite supple roughness of a russet coat they grow, plump apples, snatch, throttle cherubic purity of face dark almond windows to a gooey, half-risen loaf as malleable as clay once I sprinkled arsenic on your toast and you fed it to the cat stupid dead cat you had a crack down the middle of your left brow and your dick was mottled like raw ham and smelled like it, too dirty drains dirty words dirty dogs the silk wrapped around shelled mollusc, vile I raised the hulk of poisoned flesh, felt the warm silkiness of the liquid seeping down my legs, threw my head back and breathed –
“Don’t you want to see it?”
