Tales Of A Flayed Angel

there she stood       
stilled in defiant beauty       
on display as an archaeological find       
of unknown origin       
eternally posed for the curious       
visitors laden with a peculiar taste         
a for dark extravagance       
bemused and bewitched by       
 her immovable stance       
molded meticulously by scripture       
swirled within the folds of esoteric pottery       
into a picture suggesting a worth more       
than a thousand words could ever convey       
for those very words would still         
fall short of her ongoing epic       
shed in Gothic overtures       
graphic and gratuitous in how       
she depicts the randomness of her existence       
excavating the anthropology of her       
soul through reddened hues       
highlighting the contours of intent       
genuine and raw to the bone       
boldly..brazenly placing       
her life on judgment's auction block       
as an around the way girl         
working just her corner of the world         
swaying her ass like a pendulum         
underneath those peering streetlamps       
 succumbing to the highest bidder       
for a night of debasement and enlightenment       
bloodletting proses ripe with visceral         
emotional upheavals         
she uses her double pronged lingo to       
uncork her bottled up genie       
splashing pure genius for the museum goers         
who toss black roses    
in reciprocation of her ejaculations       
as their thundering applause drowns out the         
echoes of the cackling crows crouching      
within the shadows of a hovering nether realm         
waiting to feast upon their fem-Prometheus       
shredding her wings on a nightly basis       
devouring the air beneath her         
dark sails
