inject me with
blue ink and let my blood run
violet so i may stand in the glow and
bask unsuspecting bystanders with my woes
like the cruel and selfish whore i've
defined myself as, aligned myself with these
obtuse flaws, words of fool's gold,
living in a river of blasphemy
extracting the oxygen atoms like a
fish breathing dampened air
a decomposing corpse hoping for
a life it ended at its own gangrenous hands
to come back.
