dirty chalice

on instagram as: grumpygorman

tasted pangs of torture’s tang
 delectable damages diffused
on ruddied tongue

i droned dirges of cracked latex
bandages rotten, forgotten
left to sizzle and scab, perplexed

drew crooked claw staircase,
plum-vined, stumbled steps and hid
tipsy, behind disgrace

drank hard, till last sneering drip
of acid wine stung
priggish lips

right wicked
