  i write.
kittens'er living under the hood of your vehicles
start the engine
create a theory
live again.
i lust.
spray semen
shower off
begin again.
missing body parts make the mind race
soft... wet.
i lament.
bleeding again
bloody taste of oily iron.
the river's edge
consecrated into time & fusion matter, such as skin and wind
i'm left with the "whys" & "whenís!?"
a weekend alone in the city.
a woman as fascinated as i walks with me.
persecuted for my thoughts and off-beat verse
the sinners neglect my passion
and the church-goers coward from my swearing
i just want to believe.
i erase.
pipe bombsíll say more than bloated bellies & sad faces on the t.v.
mix the sulpher and gunpowder accordingly.
create history
live again.
i fornicate.
favor the moist
become degaussed
begin again.
dying lovers make mankind feel
defunct... abused.
i quit.
hurting again.
hurtful waste of cells and membranes
the palisadesí end
concentrated into bile and fashion focus, such as brands and material
i'm begging for a look or a sign
a lifetime left to the wolves.
a woman as vile as i stands by me.
crucified for my dreams and subjective mannerisms
while heaven knows nothing about me
and hell rejects me
i just want to be free.
i rewrite
