Keep It On Wax

by suicidallyanonymous

i.
Tonight
I want to melt the silence
between your
cloud-flecked vignettes
and ritual rejection.

You are a fallen star.

ii.
Tonight
I want to coerce
stucco and velvet
into salivating
for the bitterness
in your sulfur bones.

iii.
Tonight
I want to fit
heroin tears
between your words;
dip-dyed and mutilated
apostrophes.

iv.
Tonight
I want to exhale
every ounce of criticism
you scarred me with,
to carbonate your thoughts.

v.
This time,
white-out and sharpies
can’t make do and mend
like you said they would.

  3. Agree whole heartedly with the first comment- first class, the way you split the verses up is very effective too, love the patterns that emerge, great verbs!
