Club Doom
Whirling mirror ball
throwing a kaleidoscope
of blackened reflections on this
desiccated dance floor -
blurred shadows of hatred
Spirals of loathing,
pure red agony,
brittle, oozing
and masterfully crafted
in a dazzling show of light, sound
and alcohol.
Broken puddles
of glinting spite,
in a mouldy sort of white
encrusted with globules
of flaking envy.
(People don't notice it
amidst empty bottles and syringes
- nobody looks long enough
to distinguish it from vomit, either.)
Reeking rivulets of sweat
trailing down miniature train tracks
left by frenzied fingernails;
with true junkie desperation
(need a hit, need a high,
need some fun, some escape)
Depressions in the mud-brown bricks,
souvenirs of driving lust -
violence, power, sensation -
fragments of mortal morality
ground into a powder with
decrepit mortar chips,
under an orgy of monotone feet.
This is the refuge of the soulless,
the mindless, the heartless, the homeless;
where you dance on despair's rust-infested gr

Little Orange Tuesday
Grey ringing through my ears
shivering and warbling, angling
to slice me into diagonal pieces,
wringing out each and every little letter -
printed and cursive and bold
italic and underlined and capitals.
I'm just another earthquake victim
a jolted paper doll
wind-swept and whisked away
past all these lists of questions,
left and forgotten,
like rotten red strawberries –
little pulpy bruised jewels
in a congealed heap
of sleeping, weeping lumps.
The wisdom in the air
is a miasma of aged smiles
and wrinkled tear drops,
so palely fragile,
like ice melting and
little silvery glass sand dunes,
glittering fragmented pillows.
All these blues and greens,
these perfect scenes,
remind me of my favorite
bland, reluctant dawn,
complete with amplified panda-eyes,
little morning-breath assaults,
and whining doors.

Steady Like a Flame...
My soul is a forest,
'I love you' a match.
Grant me a sweet kerosene kiss,
and we'll bathe ourselves in ashes,
make love by the glow of the embers,
and sleep beneath the smoky haze.

Dissecting Goodnights
Dragging notes across tiled floors,
sparking feedback at every encounter with a crack,
chips provoking static,
patterns like lopsided clefs demanding pause
This cool porcelain discordance is refreshingly solid,
not like the rustle of butterfly wings,
opening flowers' petals brushing,
or the breathy hum of a disappearing sun
It's like the solid thump of startled eyelids,
flung into the wall of midnight
Staccato rhythm of nightmare gasping
and hand-sheet-clutching, wringing, twisting
Compressing moon-glow
into the sudden pin-prick of starlight,
glaring streetlights and flaring headlights
penetrate the peace of shadows and slice it open
Prying fingers and stubbed toes,
pad-pad-padding bare feet,
carefully hurried too-early-hour creeping to
refuge of carpet and blankets and worn-out
teddy bears that wreath your head in lullabies
and cradle your abandoned memories in stuffed paws
until they retreat to underneath your
bed hair and get
washed out
by the shower

Uncle Rhubarb by Mr-Sisson Uncle Rhubarb :iconmr-sisson:Mr-Sisson 644 119


Lopsided canopy trick of

A wick and weak candle

Big chopped grass and sorry ass

Yet yeti climbs the hen,
kept looking for ill liquid under the sunny sun

Banished day, the room. It was full
and I still care

Empty it first
And id be there
Goddamn this fish with thorns
On the inside, but i'd admit
Owe it to her as a meek
dusty duskhead who can never screech

New to sunfire, it burns but i have not eaten
damn, I said, to hell with five,
let me be beaten

Hip joints locked and hucked and
Tucked in position
Buckled in transition
Eager for the ending
Albeit shit,  the walk's just starting
Albeit shit, who the fuck am i kidding
