30 Oct


i traded it all

for a PRICK

[though i don’t

truly know

even now

which is



my smile; my sight

yanked and faded


my painter’s poet hand

gnarled in roots


my spirit

smashed and bent

in a forgotten

sooted spoon

    this is a truly brilliant piece of writing.

    which feels weird, saying that, considering what it means.

    This is an amazingly fantastic piece of writing. I wish you hadn’t had to write it.
