i tried to stop your calcium intake so that you would never grow
i wanted you to shrink so that i could keep you in my pocket
and you could gnaw through the fabric and plunge onto my toes.
i would walk you everywhere that i go. you would see all that i see
eventually, you would be so small, you would crawl into my ear
and scratch through my skull.
you could infiltrate my thoughts and penetrate my nervous system.
and then maybe you could feel all that i feel and realise that’s it's you
Of all the cracked sidewalks
The winding maze
Of everyone else's shattered city
He traces calcium caked bones;
Ribbon strips of dyed out dreams
Close your eyes, close your eyes!
Selectively seducing the spires of silence
Romancing the carnage soaked thoughts
Smiling all the while
Fight your way through the skin and bone
into the abyss
this place I like to call
where the lights shut off
I never feel alone
Calcium, Lithium, Cyanide
Bones, mood, a place to hide
tear me up, burn me inside
And I won't forget your face
to love you
is to rid my body of all calcium
and fall limp under the
crescent of your
chin. I see how long your eyelashes
are when I look upwards
and they are so
pretty, you could not possibly
I hang my
bones on them, for you to water.
I'm a hunk of flesh
A few pieces of calcium deftly placed
Tubes, fluids, electricity
Gasses, elemental compounds and chemicals
I sound more like a science project
Than a person
Grey sponge in a skeletal bowl
Completes the blueprint
This is homo sapiens
Blooms to sway in blue bowl.
Feeds with sucking root, edges in grass.
Turns quick head.
Flicks dead eyes.
But sings sex brightly.
With nested seeds in calcium shelf.
Dies under the sting of a Tybalt or two.
And the damned bird drops.
Wilts in the sun.
Sand is made of shells and minerals,
Calcium, iron; from your blood and bone.
And the waves crash against your body’s shore.
And there are sharks in the water.
And the sign that reads: “DON’T SWIM’.
porphyreôs, "the surging,"
You heart beats a riptide.
What a lovely place to drown.
