whining and dying

by Laura Doom

lost words collide
opposites attract and die
raucous minds rape hollow sleep
in flightless fancy's fabrication
purple hearts propound a patronising lie
fictitious flesh fans flames of promiscuity
a withering wasteland where angels ejaculate fear
and malignant demons drink themselves [into a benign stupor]

take two, outside
where genius saves;
the commuted crush
of carnal constipation
shuttleshapes through soberspace
overriding primal drive
by rationalization

stillborn tears
reduce me to lies
i refuse to take sides
in a circular argument
