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




Clipping toenails scatter
in the

My anxiety
needs to

desperately of us

Your cigarette butt ashes
embed on my

And your black market
perfume reeks
of maggot

    • 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!
