Random Poem:

Amative Infant

Drawn inchlong to the untouchable tangible,
unfurled loins, prepubescent, curious.
Investment in such libido serves only to destroy.
From whence no blood drips, natures rhythm
unsettled, still, bears an incestuous wrath. A phallus
birthed of such might and rage, one’s own
would surely perish. Befriend thine enemy
such that thee would have none,
and renounce the urge. Be re-born, an ego.
In time Oedipus you will come of age.
