slept with Chopin chewing chocolates in my cheeks
folded money meant for me and sizzled marbled meats
stealing stolen confidence like sappy smiling schmucks
admire their screaming Munch unblinded eyes behold the cucks
brutal brushstrokes broken now like brittle varnish
flooding over top of life we drown in coffins’ melted carnage
balance finds primeval competition sipping blood disguised as wine
treading a trance in flumes of filthy swine
our lives’ borrowed chemistry checked off by the EPA
how much makeup will it take to smile this stench away?
will dark return the nocturnes He did play?
will we awaken a new dawn, a new sunrise in the east?
Oh! is there another delight to taste could be so sweet?
