Random Poem:

Deathly Ill
JKWeb

the odor grows
 1
with your endless stare
 2
but that does not deter me
 3
 
 
with a handful of candles
 4
I’ll cure your purple lips
 5
and wax your glassy eyes
 6
 
 
lift your body's
 7
wind-bitten bones
 8
draped in paper skin
 9
and ravaged with disease
 10
 
 
to seek shelter at the altar
 11
then marry each other
 12
dressed as mannequins
 13
 
 
conjoined at the hip
 14
teeth sifting sand
 15
till life does us in
 16
