The Jewelry of Your Suffering

Sky lit up with fever, raving in its dreams,
the nightflowers slashing open their faces
in sudden surgeries of sight.
An image obliterated
abbreviation of breath
in viscous autumn.

Your wet eyes behind the cold door
searching for defeat,
trapped in a shattering of glass
and a remembrance of charred stars.

Painting the air with our filth,
a worm the size of the wind
chews luminous tunnels
through the snakepit of our lies
the writhing, fanged loveletters
carving poems in your flesh
the most beautiful words
ever committed to crime,
to the frozen identity of your wounded eyes
your thighs welcoming the night,
the hour spilling its black honey
in midnight's trembling hive.

Poisoned November staggers bloated
into the rigor mortis room,
abominations dripping from his lips
as he offers his chalice of infection
to the gaping idiot moon
who only listens to the bald void
caressing her scars,
lovingly licking her cratered retardation.

Yet the flame of your navel
and the seam of your smile
slowly unravel
the topography between your breasts
smooth as parables,
tasting of lightning
and thunder's punishing kiss.

The jewel of your suffering
The litany of your love for me
The decapitated angel in your death-white hands
The darkening...the sharpening.
The damp incision of you
tenderly dissecting our festering disease
our eviscerated empire that quivers as it bleeds.
