...I don't want these hands...

...oh...        
no I don't          
         
And I would hacksaw          
gnaw          
each nocuous          
nightingale nail          
from it's shoals          
it's risque riverbed          
it's fleshy fitted          
fingerhead          
to backtrack down          
every shirtless back          
they've dared - in dream          
to roam          
and comb their          
shameful handfuls          
'round          
         
...no...          
I don't want these eyes          
my erring          
staring          
glaring pirate pair of iris          
spyglass emeralds          
unsettled in their          
socket settings          
roving rifles          
of fiendish green          
         
...you should know...    
...you should know...          
they should be blown          
in whole          
out the back of my skull      
bloodstones from a blue whale blowhole        
         
I don't want this heart          
throwing thoughts of          
men          
like Campbell's cans          
clattering into shopping carts          
         
---          
         
Vagrant vices          
splice my volition          
exponentially
         
pages pile up          
miles of onion skin bible          
paper          
choky cellars stocked and locked          
X's scored          
on my bottomless          
clipboard;          
tabloid trespasses          
dyed laceleaf red          
         
Reverentially penned          
leaflets laced with lechery          
rustle - roughed-up moth wings        
rouge with regret...          
...and it's clear          
that they'd burn          
cleaner          
than my newsprint conscience
