Pheromones

what hides
beneath
finger
nail bed

what squirms
under cover
of sheets see
through

burning down scraps
turning copper
to gold reserved
for kings
in line

take a number
next to call
first to fall
blind sided
didn’t even see
those stairs

narrow minded
never mind you

ode to nuance
ode to bulldozers
ode to old

relinquish
stubborn beauty

pretty looks
pheromones
weapons of
not being welcome
here

I’d staple my
eyes shut
but your subtle
brilliance
lights up my lids

no need for
for violence
for questions
for callous
on soft spot
for blood let
for borders
for crimes
against
or crimes
deep-daggered
inside mind’s
eye
or mine

uninvited here
to interfere
to be sincere
on own dime
one’s own decline
take a number
get in line

a sweet fruit?
or are you
a bitter peel

quiet on the outside
but my insides won’t shut the fuck up

want to see
what’s inside
cellar

doubt it’s wine
of some fine age
more like rage
day after day

inspired by
aren’t we all
inspired by
surroundings

founding
past & present
merge in one
timeline
to rewrite
the future
destiny dumbfounded

best turn that lantern out
‘fore someone sees you
so grimy like the ’90s
not so polished like
the now
