Disintegration
To Nelly Pooh

amidst
  saturation bombing
 by cathode rays

synthesized cat screams
  condensed to films trailers teleplays

riverflow's worth of patina
rescued from the cutting edge
  of the overlaid checkered retinas

pablum memories
in newspaper fodder everywhere

complexion to make sense
compulsion to please
   to acquiesce to old pretense

and someone always selfishly embraced
someone was always cold

x-mas
noose
heaven
rickshaw
new year
tree
lights
yellow
street
snow under stocking feet

  no
someone had to take the fall
but you were too new
and i will never be ready

we could never be ready
but someone has to die every year

  with the perverse blessing of white ejaculate
i bless my world into the birth
of plasmatic disintegration

  sandgrains and all strokes
  into the thin edge of a hair
