NPM 23 / 30


fingers are sharp knives
every move cuts

hands are destructive mallets
crush everything touched

hair is electric wiring
with stripped ends
sparks fly against air currents

feet are struck matches
burn every step behind

eyes drip hot wax
that slides down skin
leaves holes in your sternum

what dark magic spins
from mouth
keeps tongue snagging
against fanged teeth

this portrait breathes temporarily
a hot minute
faster than a speeding bullet

microcracks splinter
faint undetectable blemishes
require mercy
