Your flesh births smoke signals….

Lying face down in twisted barbed wire and searing chains


& the Freedom of soft pain.

His name blisters coiled avidity

Scrawled across your chest in

Untamable vain.

Between slain beauty and

Glass bullet rain

Fingernails carve holes in the ripples of

Insane Janes',

Promises of desolate remains

& tarnished one-eyed fame…

Blame claims broken canes,

Shattered against the skulls of

Crippled brains.

Deception came first. And. then

His splintered name across your

Drained skin, kissed the blood of

Drowning cranes.
