“Cotton Candy Carnations”

“Cotton Candy Carnations”

Departed roses and heroes

from another life,

some call it otherworldly

and they’d be right in panda mittens

we wear coat-closets, milk kittens,

throw-up in a mink coat,

your jewelry mixed

with punishment mittens

punched in a fresh jugular

spaced-out space coats, controls

pierced with the caught fish

when we blubber and jiggle

the sun is an oil

racing our hearts to a fatal giggle

for nips in the buds:

there’s always a harsher yesterday

tomorrow will finally blind us

you may drink the blood of me

of cotton candy

snakes pierce shields

always sometimes through the powder

and powers that be

in vested vests and suits,

these cards a devil dwelt

feverish and heartwarm

shivering of elf and goblin ears

all in a rosy row

on a shelf above the bedstead.
