Syric Gem Mercury


Disambiguation - Poem by Syric Gem Mercury

A silverfish breeds
on imitation silk

and when she smiles
her mouth appears
like the innards
of a broken zipper

there's an ink blotch
on my brain
the white
of my eyes

she's the image
in nicotine
stained patterns on pages
130 - 131
in Bukowski, C. 'Slouching Toward
Nirvana'
2006

Memory paints
the act of forgetting
a fiery blue

or

black
spot on the carpet
where she may have spilt
wine

broken and alone
today
I mutter 'again'
then fray.

A silverfish dies
on pre-digested silk
