scatters

photo

turmoil in white
trim,

stiff long before
bulb flashed,

a leer at hollow print
won’t unearth
sun,

past has still
passed.

cutting room floor

telephantic, minor-key ivories
 deflect inland wars,  no more

to marrow’s babbled black & whites ripped
from flushed gut of dropout’s wrist

missed-call lapses in hesitance
drip ‘heckler’s digs’ kinda sore on
checker fades of floor

dimming dawn pools into
blush white-cell feature screen

film’s flimsy plot hacked,
ever afters,  ne’er seen

jackie’s hook

cross2

tear-slit tides of low self-regime’s triggered taunts 
spray in dry tirades of rancid loose lip gloss
flaunts,

prowling harpy’s hymnotic canto vowels,  gouge crypt’s silent slumber deep, 
brittle arch-ego spring, mists gurgling magma dross from
frosts of jilted jackie’s midst-thigh froth

– yet ’tis she,
my caving slave-heart’s madness wants.

terrare

every tick, sinister mister creak
of “look the other way”
laminate stair
leather

spooked ship-sunk heart of 
each yelpless, he-wrecked
dove tale feather

on alabaster cream cross
of bedroom fawn’s
floodlit nape

in streaming salve in Jesus’ love,
the soul escapes

this lupid (love?)

little red riding hoo

bashful flashback torches blush-
spurs fluttering, ragged feather 
flight

from lavish, yawning gate
of shameless shamble 
sores-

harmony’s chest, cold plundered, 
in salacious swarm fever-

scorched earth mutant wolf
feasts fangs on man’s best girl’s
shrieking pores.

plot of spades

coal miner monarch shrew
vaunts whet scarlet
plumes

with crude grease
stiletto grace

bearded dragon blade
pares dumb boor chap’s
candied apple face-

roe quakes bruised teats like
reckless romance rattles

at sticky, credit card
boys, tendering 
chase-

lord joke of shovels
hisses lewd,

13 treasons why his
killer queen, neighs
frisky nude-

mare stirs malice to
bubble boil, chills  her
savage garden plan

in zeal, to splay
her cyanide sympathy
hand.

d for diffident

superscary

I’m surfing steam waves
twisted kid trains
tonight

Trump curfews confuse
impoised on self-loathing
brain scatters messy
slackin

my noble cognac, too refined
an accomplice on
indivisible nights like
this

ignores, as well
my punkitsch
gibe

slay saying
vibe.

venus in black

extrovert.jpg

she freak flowed fierce at me-
mad moon-crater charms
rotary dilated, phoenix flares
of serrated Venus’ stare
in rattled cat cage of
guided missile eyes.

– and that was
hi.
