When they coaxed chambers
erupting with filament; sadistic
orchestra of dominance. Suppose
power unto hands, demonize
familiar smiles.

Fathers, unburdened, itemize
killing. Count appendages, bloody
gorges of flesh. Slowly leeching
under dichromatic plad, thick
perfume of death.

Returning, recollection is
everywhere. Beard bridles
extent of smile, secrets of
perfect murder. Hands shout
with weight of life, thick
tar of necessity.

Gently, disrobe
burdens of manhood. Stow
phallus amid shrapnel, beget
instinct preceding.
