Cloves of something crystal falling.
Tell me more and I’ll keep score.
Quit before it starts, avoidance.
Never guaranteed but torn.
All the open valves you have drained,
While every parasite is stained
From you.

Tender calls in melted color
All the starch you haven’t seen.
Tricky for a winner but see
She’s acting for this scene.
Enter weak for demolition.
Never late for darker visions
From you.

It all starts falling,
All the crystal, all appalling.
A faded echo breaks the silence.
And it all starts falling,
All the crystal starts withdrawing.
A stumble causes more for less.

Holographic novel models
Keep my sight away from more.
Left-turn stricken, pinstripe patterns
Scream and bleed upon this whore.
And her cellmates all are smothered,
No cheers heard for this young mother.
But for you.

Say they made it. Can’t erase it.
