Blood Lyric

Rating: 5.0

Abontika, my house was invaded midnightin search of you
Not like her not like him nor like them
Comparable not to this not to that not to it

What have I done for poetry plunging intolava-spewing volcano ?
What are these? What are these? Result of searches at home
of Poetry? Bromide sepia babies from Dad's broken almirah
of Poetry! Mom's Benares sari torn out of hammered box
of Poetry! Breaths are recorded in the seizure list
of Poetry! Show me show me what else is coming out
of Poetry! Shame on you; girl's half-licked guy! Die you die
of Poetry! Wave piercing sharks chew up flesh & bone
of Poetry! AB negative sun from small intestine knots
of Poetry! Asphyxiated speed stored in impatient footprints
of Poetry! Delicate tart-glow in pissflooded jail
of Poetry! Mustard flower pollen on prickly feet of bumblebee
of Poetry! Hungry farmer in dirty loincloth on salty dry land
of Poetry! Rotten blood on feathers of corpse eating vultures
of Poetry! Sultry century in faded humid spiteful crowd
of Poetry! Black death shrieks of intelligence in guillotine
of Poetry! You die you die you die why didn't you die
of Poetry! Fire in your mouth fire in your mouth fire
of Poetry! You die you die you die you die you die
of Poetry! Not like her not like him nor like them
of Poetry! Comparable not to this not to that not to it
of Poetry! Abontika, they came in search of you, why didn't take you along! !
