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.

girl with the greedy gown

greedy gown

on sacred magic,
secret night

girl netted sky’s
every dropping
sunshine star

in faux-velour
rapacious gown,

dismissed all
firefly cries

as they swirled,
sucked into sour
pits of eyes

air went dark,
but girl beamed
brilliant

realm beyond her
withered

decays of dreams
spread, unnoticed.
