in the carbon drought, the sickly-winking
grid of city nights
is chemically aligned
with the gladiators in their ring
and the trembles of their muscled hearts;
sweating and naked in Rome’s filthy stinking bright,
bare-footed amongst the slaves, the honey
and the flies,
yawning and roaring in the light –
blooded tongues in ancient mouths,
bloody roses on ancient ground,
the blood cries from ancient crowds –
it's your blood,
in your little veins,
and so loud.

seven stars spilling through my teeth,

You rainbows, you nimble-fingered
nimbuses of women,
you who saw me new and screaming,
you who saw me with my hair cut straight
across my forehead, six and lisping,
sixteen and listing,
Listening to you.
I was frightened by the art on your walls,
I loved the snarls in your hair.
Your sons and I, we pushed our hands
into the blackest dirt we could find.
Our nails became dark moons
ten small copies of the ink on Jo’s forearm.
We raked our fingers through the mud.
You put seeds beneath my skin,
and I did not know they were there,
until I grew,
and smelt the wild sage
amidst the copper of my blood.

Though tired from your day at work.
You lay your head upon the pillow,
And you start to fall asleep...
It is quiet in your apartment,
The silence is soothing.
You soon begin to dream,
And though your dream is initially pleasant...
Something seems to be off in the things you see around you.
You find yourself walking through the streets,
The old pavement beneath your apartment.
It looks like it always has except for all those cracks in the stone.
Crick-crack, crick crack.
You turn your eyes from the paving,
To see the streets lined with people.
Shivering, grim; their eyes hold little hope,
Save for a warm night' meal.
You begin to feel a little more frightened.
Your tie is getting pretty tight.
You stagger into your office, your lips going blue.
You try to alert someone,
But your colleagues no longer have faces...
They are simply mouths, large and unrelenting,
Belting you with a storm of words that drowns you out.
You are silenced, in a world

Percy flinched, his body moved forward and he caught the smaller demigod in a one arm scoop.
Nico dropped his sword and grabbed on to Percy's shirt. Nico was scooped toward Percy's chest; he could smell a mixture of axe body wash and the salty ocean. Nico shuddered.

Lust, so fucking hot, so delicious...no matter what, no matter how much he tried to ignore it, there was a passion there, an unyielding, impossible passion and attraction that existed between him and Toki. He knew he wasn't gay, but he couldn't help ithe wanted to kiss him, to slip his tongue into the Norwegian's mouth, to feel every part of him...he wanted to get him naked and panting, begging and crying out in ecstasy as he fucked him...
Pickles smiled in his sleep and let out a moan. He knew it wasn't okay to think of all of these things, much less dream about doing them, but when he was in his own world of nighttime slumber, it was okay, he supposed. It was fine just as long as when he woke up he wasn't still dreaming of doing it. The way he figured it, his attraction to Toki could easily be explained--in short, he wanted to protect the Norwegian in ways that he himself hadn't been protected. Toki was young, he was innocent, much like Pickles
