Cinder Block Castle

I was taught by my father
How to build a fortress
A Cinder Block Castle
With high heartless walls
 
Where I play scratched records
On the tip of my flawed claws
Hoping for different endings
My insanity was given birth
 
Seeping into the concrete
Blooming poisonous flowers
A masquerade of nightshade
Herb veins of Spearmint
 
The color of vibrant jade
Tempting men to climb
Hand over suicidal hand
Trigger fingers shaped like bullets
 
Digging into the outdoor mortar  
Stirring clouds of crumbs and rock
While inching and crawling upward
Alongside death growing outside
 
Dangling off the walls
Waiting for the  
Dust to settle
For a peek inside
 
My Cinder Block Castle
