Doctor Kill Joy

Doctor Kill Joy

fill my face with tin,
a newer way to begin
in full circles by which to begin all over again
fond of each other
a brother from another mother
let the decoy muster
savage beast by which to recover
salad in the cupboard
my life spent discover
love was gain to each other
shallow peak sprang a brand new leaf
keep your head up
some may be suited to throw up
blanket around your neck
pieces, reflections & orders


salt in your teeth
painted pony's on a nearby fence
lost the ball like the famed Bucky Dent;
Doctor kill joy
