bulbous eyes like grapes burst

between my teeth—

I'm eating nightmares

and it's lovely.

Isca chapter 1 . 6/1/2009
Oh my...bubbling morbid. The imagery in that opening line is so vivid and chilling. Excellent work.

"Entrails tripping." Ha! The speaker's bowels seem to be falling out-what a tragicomedic tone.

"Bulbous eyes like grapes." Yes. Powerful simile. Hard-hitting. Grotesque.

"I'm eating nightmares and it's lovely." Nice nonchalant tone here.

"Empty chests." This entire 'autopsy' stanza was very innovative-loved the y-incision part.

"But night will come again to steal my eyes." Brilliant ending. Passionate. Raw. Sorrowful. Angsty.
