FLESH

Her body writhes
in the agony
of purest ecstacy
She grips at
sheets of gossamer
translucent as shrouds
Does she think me a ghoul
as I taste her flesh
and cannibalize her desire
to taste mine
?


MOTH & CANDLE

a flickering light
for flickering wings

seeking that which gives life
and burning to death

a single light
is extinguished


REAL

He sheds his loose skin
and drops his vile mask of meat
hidden demons show


COLOR SPRAY

The sunlight
dances
with the colored panes
of a church window
high above an altar
spraying colored light
down
upon the
...no longer?...
white robes of a preacher


TREE

It's
tall branches
reach up
for the sun
hoping
to capture it
and feed itself
forever


DISSECTION

my soul
has been
cut away
leaving
an empty
shell
behind


LUNAR 9

Man
where none has been
and none should be
footprints left forever
never blown away without
a wind
bring your own air
it will leave you
breathless


LOUDER

scream yourself to death
SILENCE is a haunting, hungry demon
waiting to eat your soul
and vomit it back in your face


NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

bathe in the light/can you
feel the warmth of a dying sun??/
reach for the heavens/grasp
a falling star/
think of forgiveness/shoot
for the moon/
bathe in the light/can you
??


WALL FLOWER

the music plays
soft and romantic

Her feet stir against
her will

She wants to dance
the dance

Yet she clings
to the wall

like a flower
rooted in earth


TUMOR

a splitting headache
stolen memories drift by
mind under pressure


FEAR

the beast
is crawling
in your belly
feeding
off of you
It's stinger
is planted
firmly
in your mind
filling you
with
dark thoughts
and
nuclear emotions


UNTITLED

Diseased
minds. Insanity rages
in a constant storm inside our
brains. Sanity is a far away home.


BLEACH

have you ever danced
upon the head of a pin
a big, red ball
spinning beneath your feet
the stark whiteness of your world
casting shadows on the walls


WELCOME TO MY BLACK DEATH

the beast of burden
has licked my soul.
(a taste he found delightful!)
The Marlboro Man rides a Camel
through my lungs
breathing death in every corner.
And medicine men don radiation suits
to blast me
with their healing rays.


FIRE

Once I was a paperman
in love with a being of fire
A fatal attraction
of such brilliant intensity
smoldering at my soul
even from afar
A love
of such burning desire
it inevitably
consumed me


FIST FUCK

Grab yourself
This is where it counts
Hold on for dear life
No one loves you like you
love yourself

If you can pull yourself
away for a moment
They'll tell you
it's not right for you to
love yourself

Nervous energy and sweaty palms
Lick your lips dry
Mother says
to clean up your messes and
love yourself


THERE'S A MONSTER IN THE CLOSET

What do yo do
when something tickles your barefeet
in the basement

where they sent you
even though they know
you don't like to go there

in the dark

shadows make a pair of shoulders
the furnace hissing demon breath
eyes that are not eyes reflecting
in the dark

What's that there
under the stairs where monsters lair
check and see
if you dare

I dare you

slither! bump!
trying to find a light
slither! bump!

it wasn't me
I haven't moved a step
since something tickled my foot

in the dark


Beauty

beauty
is that predatory beast
that stalks
within our sight
alluring us
with
carnal deceptions
