Stereo

Serpent,
Messenger,
Malice,
Serenity,
One speaks serptitiously,
One says not enough,
Warring on the battlefield
Of egos and shoulders,
Arms or armistice,
Art or artifice,
Bliss or trouble,
The message confused.

The song froze
Midair
Mid-note at midnight
In Midgard,
Disregarded chorus,
Spelled calamity
With a corkscrew,
Conjured the colossus
Out of cast-iron and
Cadmium,
Heated to a boiling point
Where butchery
Was a
Blessing.

Begonias for a
Bed,
Bartered with
Forget-me-
Knots in my stomach
Because
Rememberance brought
Rash behavior.

Razor blade anecdotes
Of doubting doting,
Redoubled vision
Viscous as her vicious
Revamping of her habits.

Nun could tell if
The tortures of a crossing
Guarded,
Gallantry or
Lobotomy or
Lob to me
Lofty lavender lamentations,
Lopsided stratifications
That connived to carve
Coldly into stone
Solaces in a solar
Systematically.
