cultus

retreat

rats in cult of
savagery-

crash to
jelly kneed alibis
for relief

beliefs face-fucked
into slavering
mouths,

grudgeons, perched,
guts stirring now
to

slurried
cabala choir 
of vows,

recycling for sake
of shaking 
fate-

plague claws through
smirking, sacrificial gate

bird forest

i tore through
brambly forest
of torture

shading churned panic
in fiddler’s clot
of my heart

tailed dead bat
crumb trail and
high-snailed out of
terror

yet, to blind offence
i shrunk pale
to start

Leech

 

leech2.jpg

tippled way
long- choice bust
milked to
raisin.

my lechery
spanked by
flash drought
of taste,

lips sneaking
with rat’s shoes
‘cross badlands
of bloomed
bulbs-

no mine
will molder
as waste.
