This is not a Love Song

 

Unnecessary Quote:

This is not a love song….” – PiL

 

Eyelash pucker

curving up and back

falling down and back

drilling inward sensitive skins

mining the diamonds of dermis

fracking with every sizable blink

a blood-spattered fresco on plaster

Or a Mona Lisa with tears of O –

wearing a plunging gallows neckline

 

I will understand you from hindsight

I will know you from the craning

of my neck—long as it is—unbroken

This is not a love song, not a sonnet

It’s a letter to the Editor, a summons

a court date—from the crypt
