I could tear you apart with teeth shredded like snapped, over-fretted guitar strings.
But, I’d rather simply look upon you quietly and plot the upcoming delicious demise you already seem intent on ensuring.
But, first, just a little something to chew on…
Are you peckish, skittish one?
What do you call this rhythm?: the independent music journalist asked me.
I call it punctuated equilibrium in syncopated time; and, yes, it will induce sleep paralysis.: I respond with a coy grin.
I snake his fingers between mine, before your eyes.
I saw your invisible snarl at his aura bursting forth in surprised, physical response.
Did you know that I abhor playing zero sum games?: I ask, aloofly, to No-Body.
Our thoughts are linear, strung out on a line
to hang, mid-air, and dry.
But, Nature is a volume encompassing.
A space within which you find.
Our eyes see at the
speed of light coming.
My ears hear at the speed of sound resonating.
Waves lapping at the sea shore.
The mind perceives its thoughts more slowly.
Your skin already feels heat well before your mind realises
you have already been burned.
This I knew before you showed me.
Here are petals to serve as your flesh’s exfoliant.
