the arpeggio
DeformedLion

my balls are primed     succulents
 1
   like arpeggios grow
 2
       more arpeggio
 3
           broken little dove
 4
the floor is flickers on the brim
 5
of your yes, your no and eyeline
 6
i harbour you like nails
 7
pain  
 8
 
 
i cut thin slivers  
 9
palm red, angry as an ant
 10
 
 
   balls drop like i forgot them
 11
 
 
   wanted to gorge on you
 12
       till skin
 13
       slickened
 14
       remembering that a night
 15
       is less
 16
       to forgive than
 17
       an eternity.
 18
 
 
humour
 19
dangling
 20
    arpeggio
 21
      from me
 22
  and the skin has thickened
 23
  over.
 24
 
 
your brand new
 25
hands have squashed themselves
 26
balls pulped  
 27
                 i obliged you
 28
                  and olives
 29
                 i flicked through you
 30
                  arranged by
 31
                  familiar composer      and notes
 32
      
 33
fell from the sky the way apples fall
 34
the way maggots spring
 35
how dope is the prettiest
 36
and shiniest to the hurt
 37
you cradled, longing
 38
to be dead
 39
                there's a new
 40
                me
 41
                crusting over
 42
                the bits i spilled
 43
