poetry of the Dark, Erotic, Violent, Religious & Macabre

Desperaturbia

 

 

Clipping toenails scatter
in the
sink

My anxiety
needs to
rethink

desperately of us

Your cigarette butt ashes
embed on my
tongue

And your black market
perfume reeks
of maggot
beauty

  1. help me out a little here. does this type of poetry fit comfortably into a category? there was a certain beauty weaved throughout, but the maggots detracted from that. intentional? if so, bravo.

    • The use of the word “maggot” was intended as a gut-punch. ‘Anger’ would seem to category(ly) fit although I viewed it more as ‘Love’. Thx for commenting, Kendall!
