Talk to me -
Of a mercurial heart melancholy and much maligned
Ribcage muscled and intricately designed
With filigree fibres intricately connecting
Where searching blades would go dissecting

Talk to me -
In mechanised hums and angular tunes that echo numb
Through anvil hammer cochlea and drum
Pigment paint and carefully coloured dye
Wormhole maze the apple of your eye

Talk to me -
In tangle tongues tied up in cat-gut calligraphy
We will tightened tender ropes knotted to set you free
Pay the boatman pay the finder’s fee
Tell me what your long stares see

Add a twist or two more to the rope and pull a fingernail out too. I will eventually have had enough and tell you anything you want me to.

Close to the truth. Take it from someone who knows.

Yodood said...

Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies.
Threaten to kill me, I'll tell you your lies.

nothing like a good beating to clear the head

Pisces Iscariot said...
