(NoPoo 361) Husk


naked, alone stripped to bone
nothing human left, just a empty husk
torn apapart, pieces scattered
there's no nobility in suicide
yet its flame has drawn me

do i disappoint you
well find another corppse
this soul is beyond redemption
purgatory becomes sanctuary
for all my shame

brutality of constant failure
sows seeds that bring doubts
suffering sacrifices less pain
prisoner inside insanity
futile attempts at normality

Bonework

 
I laid your teeth  
in my palms—
ivory tombstones
etched on their own
 
every cavity
tainted with field food,
having fed their soft infants
on mist rolling hillsides
I have come to call home  
 
there you lay
attached at the spine
 
a sentient being
rib-exposed;
the flesh now gone
 
returning to Earth
 
becoming Earth
 
taking your place  
in the circle of all
while young ferns  
coiled themselves
around an empty skull
 
and there
I humbled myself
in your presence  
 
there
I lay my ego down
as we mirrored our ends
 
announcing our strange fate
before the certainty
of wild things.

no shadows, only echoes

 
there are  
certain things  
i find myself  
completely
afraid of  

moments  
where i find  
myself calling  
upon you,  
 
for somebody  
who is decent  
at reading  
in-between  
the lines  
 
it's amazing  
how i missed  
such a vital  
piece,  
 
how we  
both know  
it hurts to  
sacrifice  
things  
 
and  
 
how you  
letting go  
was never  
about not  
wanting me  
 
but rather  
it was simply  
your way of  
loving me,  
 
so tonight  
i find myself  
in deep relief  
as you linger  
across these  
night skies  
 
knowing  
 
how we  
are aligned  
in many ways  
i never even  
thought of,  
 
how  
my ways  
echo parts  
of you.

(NoPoo 362) Is It True?

Food banks  calling
Stick pride in your pocket
Feeding frenzy awaits  
They've blown every light on humanity
Nothing precious anymore

Except bare compliant arns
Come for vaccination passports
Acess all areas
No jab forget support
Upon the name of country

Duty required
deaths keeps rising and falling
Its a stock market graph
Figures to deliberate
Maybe we will survive
After tombs are filled

… pardon me for being on my 15th fkn mood

I craved peanut butter
  
and good sex
   
s i m u l t a n e o u s l y—  
   
threw my hands in the air  
when the trash bag ripped  
spilling out tea leaves    
and chicken bones  
across the kitchen floor  
in some catastrophic    
journal of English chaos  
   
thought about murder  
[more than once]  
   
but decided    
that the chai  
was probably    
a polystyrene hell  
& yeeted that off  
into the ether.  
   
I’d like to say  
the two squares of chocolate  
I had earlier took the edge off  
   
[but it didn’t]
   
as I listened to my uterus  
play my ovaries like a banjo  
laughing at the notion  
of a feminist deliverance    
and crying for no reason  
at all    
   
other    
than    
   
the cupboards  
and the house    
were empty    
   
and I don’t know    
if I mentioned this  
   
but I craved    
peanut butter  
   
and good sex  
   
s i m u l t a n e o u s l y—  
   
all  
or    
nothing  
   
at all.

(NoPoo 363) Failure

loving you
is wrong
feel failure

in  
each
breath

self
worth
spirralling

into
desperation's
depths  

my
heart wants
love still

happuness
seems
far away

more
a distant
memory

haunting every
nightmare
dream

can't catch
this anxiety
inside

superstitious
of being
hurt

already
dedicated
to suffering

nothing
ever goes
right

leaky  
life  
boat

slowly
sinking
further

amongst
the many
shipwrecks

Twenty-One

(After ‘Sixth’ by LaceySpacey)  
      
sometimes      
dreams echo in my veins      
and I mistake them for life      
       
tried to write them once      
and that’s where damage      
was done        
       
twenty-two      
wrists the colour of beetroot      
lassoing a dark moon      
       
glasses full of starlight      
       
eyes      
like black holes      
       
twenty-three      
tor rising from the Earth      
in a green shroud        
       
and their feet walked      
ancient trackways      
to the burial mounds      
       
I know how they felt;      
I knew      
       
I know      
       
twenty-four      
a hymn about dying        
       
hammering fists      
into snow covered trees      
blood running over wet bark      
down into blankets of white        
       
car lights      
broken glass      
       
streetlight madness        
       
twenty-five      
had a capital letter;      
that should have been      
unimportant        
       
twenty-six      
your hands found me      
       
fox snarled gums      
against a bear trap soul        
       
there were small deaths      
never buried, not then      
       
not now      
       
twenty-seven      
walked in high heels        
       
black clasped;    
patent promised    
       
twenty-eight      
revolution in the abattoir      
where death found me    
       
in her eyes      
in his smile      
       
twenty-nine      
ivory lace, cream taffeta        
       
lungs full of nicotine      
on a balcony above a lake      
       
and there was wine        
in our glasses      
       
wine in the cellars      
       
chests like New Years      
firing from the rib      
       
thirty      
I lost her        
again      
       
since then        
needles      
and pinched skin      
every time I attempt      
new growth      
       
thirty-one      
I loved you more        
than I loved myself        
       
I died        
so you might live      
       
don’t think        
you’ve ever really      
heard that      
   
have you  
       
thirty-two      
plane crash gut      
       
whiskey shivers      
       
vomiting love      
into sewers        
       
thirty-three      
& death reminded me        
why I’m scared to be alone        
       
but you’ve known scars      
     
kept them safe      
       
thirty-four      
stood naked under Orion        
       
two stars of belt in my skull      
       
a centre orb burning        
in my third-eye      
like an Opal tear      
       
thirty-five        
takes a moment      
to begin—      
       
learning to breathe      
    learning to breathe      
learning to breathe      
       
thirty-six      
water in the veins      
stained in coal silt      
at the breakwater        
       
floating above        
lost corpses  
sinking in the mire  
       
embracing chaos like a prayer        
       
eternally waiting for a bomb      
I will not hear

everytime

(after 'to love is to destroy' by girljunk)
  
 
we meet  
   
a new story  
begins    
   
while  
something  
dies upon  
black    
sheets.

(NoPoo 364) Love Defined

~beauty~


~love~


are
defined by
the heart

it's
capacity
to feel

~know~

far
beyond
the known

a
lingering
whisper

~scent~

~thought~

falling
in love
is a risk

where
obsession
affects

~sanity~

we are
tethered
bonded

~by fate~

~destiny~

to
merge
as one

~being~

Ruby Lounge

       
It wasn’t until I closed        
a cubicle door that I        
stopped      
       
ran fingers        
over a filthy lock—      
       
thought of flame        
amongst the piss        
stained ash        
of staying        
       
music engulfing
threadbare chairs
as eyeliner cried out    
some foreign rebellion      
     
.      
.      
.      
       
I swallowed that match       
love—        
       
dedicated
the burn

(NoPoo 365) The Gift

sensual
ritual
of it
makes it
so hard
to resist

the way
he slowly
dresses you
whispering
how you
will taken

stimulated
mind
on fire
with the
imagery
placed

tasting
the glistening
dew on finger
he loves
your offering
to him
