fades in beige (an ode to william corgan)

when your life is lacking taint,  it’s your job to get out the paint… 


was the fall of Eve,
in frosted velvet cupcake sheets,

when twilight curiosities
wagged parlour fingers
in space, at me.

caught bloody palms, brain free
in gentler brush of
sweetheart’s tree

all slain, bold gashes
in beiges of backsplashes

fuck this melting gelato smog-
and its mist skittish ,
soot shroud-

laying reclaim to lewd shape
lines by shifting, sneering

reshuffling of the intimate
in focus, bold-brushing
swan grays to the side,

full spiral ahead
to verves of forfeit dead,
broke-winged things invading skies
in vermillions eyes

fall off facades

on instagram as: grumpygorman

tropic palm oils tame tragedies
spewed at satin mare’s visage
shade, discreet

suspending toaster-fried bathroom death
in mariana’s leagues of lovers, arctic hands’ 
cut glass monologues knead contusions
‘tween lapse in sandstorm gasps

yet, by rites of a kamikaze brand kindness
and righteous eye-roll,
sunday chapel say

she skims jaundice curd from
cliches etched blanch in
briar clay of trusts,

“if you won’t concede you’re free
from feeling pleased, please stay
late ’nuff to sink pissed dram
libertine in steep-end
slow treading  me.”

day break-fast smiles

on instagram as: grumpygorman

absorbed moment molestation of
jerked from clouds attention

by one note guardian’s
mere murky, morning mention.

a fair fawn too minor for ruffling
weathers of the creepy
deep sea disturbs

that splinter wounds of 
haunted cabin minds, 
like mine.

she fireflies with breakfast sunshine,
like star sagging skies
are fine.

marvel finds of marble minds


keep this surefire sanction
swathed in down-slope spine,
of your creepy attic

when nitwit blame herd’s
scorched birth toothpicks,
jab deep at christened knight
name,  maligned

just remember, the amethyst
meteor streamers of our marveled 
monkey minds

are vapor tails of swine flight over
mad max moon crystal blue’s
freaky, golden ticket find
