Bleeding orgasms, writing poetry

Posted to Action Poetry

Gratuitous, this X upon my arm
the rivulets of ripe pride

Violent, this action undertaken
this scream scar tattoo,

Religious, this acceptance
of pulp and withering
against maintenance.

Rewarding, this transparency,
a dawn of indian reds
and mushroom clouds.

Concealing, this delusion triggered
by aesthetics and the meaning inferred
Revealing, this sleight of hand,
this enigmatic wedding band
binding me to the morning;
watching the birds fly above
brutality, as I,
condemned on my knees
bleed orgasms, writing poetry.
