There’s a lot of

morphine to drink

Advil to take,



consuming powers of absence

semblance of lofty death awaits.


As I speak, I am at peace.

As I pause, I am eaten by fleas.

could I ask how

these eyeballs escape their sockets?

pumping, throbbing: each in every finest

as thy finest pass through my nostrils.


Fear not! Oh barren soul

this passion will attest my love for thee;

pour unto me the replays of somersault,

and lead this heart away

from unrequited love.


: then, the ogre

fell in love with him.

and the Advil embraced its death.

POST SCRIPTUM: I don’t know about this one, been so busy these past few days. If you could notice its itinerary, you’re a lucky lad, if not, you’re a lot luckier than anyone else… but these words are what my mind wants to form right now. Please pardon me if it doesn’t have any sense at all 😉
