Blauschwarz

the sense olfactory

of synthetic blueberry

soap suds of mauve and

shadow on pillows

raven’s wing

an Elvis thing

old sailor’s ink and

pale skin,

don’t give in

to grey

Change is gonna come

there must be a better way

but what is it?

 

beating head ‘gainst walls

expecting butterflies to

explode

from the fissure

nobody’s listening

writing about rebels while

paperclipping plain white pages

ineffective rages

of trapped princess

insane

beauty-loop of

fake

worthless

don’t know

how to

what to

no way

to make it

change

Irresistirebel

bitchy

snitchy

trigger-twitchy

she’s got an itchy… cee

wants to steal

your pitches

swiftly

stamp-trample

fuckshitup

and pee

oh, she notices

your faults and smirks

she lurks

in corners

where you thought

you’d be unseen

picking your nose

or worse

and worst

dirty secrets

she’ll unearth

for everyone

to see

but then

she laughs

holds out a hand

come dance

on podiums

such glee!

irresister

rebel sister

burn life down

with me

Heartplace

it was pink and curved

it was black thick-pile velvet

it had the tacky floor of a Camden boozer

and it smelled like clothes

in the morning

before

the smoking ban

small enough

to hold in one hand

forearms rest on thighs

an imperfect fleshy sphere

a soggy cosmetic sponge

pink-brown, is that my skintone?

outdated,  like a cord-phone

a soaked-in scent of hangovers

fumes of long ago

mine, tongue-smooth, alone…

lazy, comfortable, like home
