little hypnotists

by Desdemona Sinestra

tiny fingers plug our thoughts 
like pins to balloons
tiny fingers with pointy claws sink
inside our overripe faces
all but eyes and words shrinking
 clout clout clout clout
smaller and smaller and smaller
inside out and void of doubt

Stunning. The language in this is just vicious to the letter, and that's definitely a good thing.

"tiny fingers with pointy claws sink
inside our overripe faces" love these lines! the rest of the piece is pretty awesome too!
