Jan 5
I used to lay naked on the sand
pale body in stark contrast
To the dark soil
Right sided waves
Swiftly hit my raw intestine
Needle-pain against my
Life-sized scar

I used to drown in man-made puddles
Filled with the purple shades of a subtle tear
i found comfort in holding back the ocean
in swallowing,in blistering
(iodine throat, failed kidney osmosis)

I drowned overflowed.

Now the sun
Keeps falling over me,
Laughing over me,
And the moon has left
My sleep tired eyes
Sadistic clowns
Sand mouth stuffing
My grit smile
Masochistic asphixiation

(Oh right now) how i'd love
To drown burned.
Life live love eyes time
