Refreshment for the Exorcism
Laughing young spend their days Expanding and collapsing
Beautiful faces running Under a condom yellow sun
Like the blood of another planet Makes us all afraid
Refill for the Exorcism
Sex announces Great Vespers A mock altar as big as teen culture
Grooms another and disappears O gory baby I’m thirsty
In perfumed smoke For a cup of light That turns the air cold
Tiny lightning bolts help me burn a mirror.
Eyes are of minor misuse.
A little more ceiling falls to the floor
As we drag ascension.
Entropy impresses us upon an island
Full of banners and blurbs.
We depress for days
Without a single wardrobe change.
Our awful locale offers ace vindications
And lawful schooled burns.
Happy brain wikis become the norm.
Bruise datum helps me tic in the eternal laundromat.
A glitch of bullshits makes my day water.
In one dimension I’m made of letters.
In another you wean from a baking hot crag
And soon become a senator.
A thumbs up carves a sightseer
Beyond all recognition. 666 goes the couple
On a beleaguered mule in a tropical apex.
Their happiness dooms a thousand ships.
We know not what we do, duh.
Skulls get sick and look to worship
And we are reduced to egg-pale pets
In egg-pale rooms. Later, the new religion
Heralds grim reviews of ordinary food.
