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.”

the moistest methods of peacoquette

on instagram as: grumpygorman

peacoquette sways flutters suave to
butter dripping strobe gone soft

on  sleek of gown sequins,
boasting boutique iridescence,

a bulging floodgate presence  
spurs divan, mount-me penance,

in pseudo-zealous,
chest-pound trance,

of sugar-nose, raving crows 
hooked on nasty dance

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.

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


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

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.

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

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 

from lavish, yawning gate
of shameless shamble 

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

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 

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
