wild rosé ~ ii

[iii]
at times i am flay'd wide
from throat to the seat ov my sin  
as tho you are a haruspex  
fingering the labyrinth ov my entrails  
scrying for sources ov emotion  
in wellsprings that run to close to my pores  
 
[ii]  
if you wrote questions on my bones, what would the flames tell you  
once you toss'd them to the pyre,  
would the india ink  
spilling into fire-bitten fissures  
spell my secrets to be divin'd_ to be suck'd from my marrow  
in a shriek  
 
[i]  
above the blister ov blood {&} breath  
my body a crucible,  
my organs scorch'd  
 
you hold dying sulphur tendrils  
twixt your fingers

burn me clean

Author's Note
how unnatural that this has become a d'viation... that i am so posess'd, overtaken... lost.. this is no longer my voice.
