An Examination - Poem by Daniel Phillips

My head
on contact

The young
my face

I look
through sheets
of cobweb

I cir-
the peace

I wake
I watch
I wallow

I want
I need
I feed

These traits
I know
Are wanton

These traits
are all
in me.

I knew
I was
an addict

I know
I am

I live

I live to be obscene
