Expressive Rays


I want to impress
the invisible stinking
nowhereness of life,

Balanced outside
near a lamppost
with icy disposition,

I want to depress
myself with nothing,
or glare into the very
eyes of the words,

Make sure they know,
why I use their faulty purity,

Hence why there are always
nails out,

Oh! don't say that, say this...

Say what?

Ah! nothing!

Explain yourself with rose thorns,

Drip blood!

Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
