Death of a buttercup in 6 hours

The reaping!

a raindrop rainbow screwdriver to the navel,
thrust upon you!
a cripple?
a chrysalis?
subdued in this catatonic daydream.

the mismatched body parts saran wrapped.
pruned your nightmares
as you flail and writhe;
trimmings too soon I'd oblige.

speak it unfair and we'll return
for those bullet casing blue eyes.
whispered "Killers!" in the shadows
yet dust cloths in dilapidadted mansions reveal mirrors.

we are snazzy dressed lawyers,
shot outside on the courthouse steps;
accosted by our own indecency.
decadent orgy punk rock trash can suicides.
I'll be your failed framed restaurant health inspection score,
you be my inspector spitting in my mouth.
gratify and I'll be redemption!

spreading my wings much with liberties? a medley? a madness? drive thru thoughts. common theme? this is a strange world with an ache in it's belly and we're the leaking.
