Baby - Poem by Leslie Philibert

The bloody wax of silence ripped out
save yourself
no return ticket

lash under the weight of a whore`s breath
a little pighead with a big O
a fish gasping on a quay

silver arms spark and dance
two strangers at tango
impossible: more holes than anything

and right this time? - forget it;
nothing fits either
the bastards have got it wrong again.
