sally and bill go to the stars
DeformedLion

they find rainbow, they free
 1
judas, they hold hands
 2
 
 
it could be love, the shine - the syllable to make lips
 3
move like treasure chests and the pry bar so rusted
 4
that when you slammed the car boot it flaked on the
 5
side of the grass which i had just cleaned of her
 6
blood.
 7
 
 
and she was everything: so fatal,
 8
sounds of love, forlorn as bee wings
 9
dripping honey into thought, i spread
 10
my legs for you (she thinks) but i think
 11
its that tender thing again, that she
 12
knows seed is the link and the flame.
 13
 
 
or that was blood mouthed- when he was cradled in his early life, swaddled by the lamp and the shadows
 14
of flowers cut pretty and placed on a dresser by the mirror that she will never love, or be kind.
 15
 
 
once we danced, spittle on my jaw, i called her mommy or sock puppet, i made a pose which she threw up on, i was jade beneath the well lip, the burlesque of ripped flesh and crushed peanuts
 16
 
 
the rainbow soggy, my mind limping; fly-blown
 17
and under sweat; your heart was my heart, and we have disease
 18
 
 
we have trees which we watch grow in the evening
 19
 
 
we have sally and bill
 20
 
 
mouths open to the stars
 21
 
 
and the tender hand
 22
 
 
fisting each of them.
