            on sockets quickened sand
      o ne wither pas nor skinrust pus

5. Assassin
     I shiver with elation
       -Philothée O'Neddy, Fanaticism

      was it
captured in the rimtide's crashing
the nemesis of gorging slacks preparing for their plaster treason
      dread tongues
and maudlin sinks the centipede
    its skintight––fleshring
      in dual procession
  dreams of gnashing rainbows puff to the pommel
nectar bat-fur last contraption made to wring the necks of hangnail-resolutions
      or birds
flashed down from the sky comme cotton dandelions
who loves them loves them not they fly
they do not even scream
