Naiv

(for the "UGLY" comp)  
 
a pity about the transparent shell  
making you ten times resilient  
because it's disgusting  
to see every  
oozing, pulsing organ  
through such bulletproof glass  
 
i'm livid, in fact  
that there's no phasing  
your clockwork predictability  
and still your simple company  
could leak into morning  
leaving its tell-tale stench  
on my favourite boots  
 
you deserved no small kindness paid  
but i felt[a moment] for that horrid face  
the spindly neck and dazey eyes  
that suck subtleties from their posts  
one hopes they would defend  
 
i cradle the idea that  
you are only a small creature  
hideous as you may be  
wide as your territory spreads its legs  
and i respect  
that nature is what dictates  
your squealing  
to the moon and tribes and stars  
 
but your presence will never again  
let its bile onto my floor  
my suedes remember well those drink-laden eyes  
and when you next defile my own  
light is my weapon of choice
