Dearest sweet mystic of mine, you saint.
My boy Venus, philosopher of purest love.
I’m cute so you’ll feed me lesser animals,
& that makes you the animal-killer here.
You talk about “violating” this or that,
but you’ve got it backward: killing is
the parody of fucking, and you are
just a pervert. But latter-day libertine
of mine, don’t repent of your delusions,
your petty sickness and obsession—
kill, if you can indeed, by fucking.
Translation of dying from castration
into dream-speech: sailor is a sad
surgeon. Iron fists couple low &
slips squeals or noises pop apart.
What noises? Pleuronaut red lines,
ant colony grown in my frontal lobe.
Are you under the quivering lamprey?
Need point that smear at me need
the sickly red-brown scraped in my
eyes & the stench in my nose. Then,
sour burgeoning of all fuck and die.
& join the sign to the sun to open up.
Frankenstein near-annotated in derelict
warehouse by imperious pervert.
Tainted possum chases wain of cock.
Is this any consolation? Uh let me
check let me it smells like springtime
like green leaves and new drug laws.
The coil loops dance, they’re
violently and joyously animated.
[We were born merely to become scars.
We live life in crooked & dark rooms.]
An immense crashing wave is to image
as my love to the massive & scandalous
erection that is you your body & mind.
You are not the sneering aristocrat.
Be the flag, thrust into earthworms.
Be the joy of filth, suck pustules.
Be the tree, shattered thunderstruck.
Be the dog, kiss the anus of god,
make judgment and forgiveness stop.
