Behind the Blood Bathed Walls

laughter stressed, shadowed, and slaughtered
bloodbaths on blanketed - frost bitten walls
prowling Paralysis cripples perception
intaking insanity: intrinsic draws

splattered across the blood - bloodied walls

sharp and sinister; faces of the cylinder
wounds - angry on wounds
pardon no attune
salt beneath the under-eye: pain in the guise
dismissing the alcohols violent call

fearing the drip
drip of flammable walls

guilt in each parasite
contagious as they ooze
steaming walls of carmine
inky blue boiled a bruise
painting heart in its ash
on the faces of dolls

h e a v i n g behind these
infe . . .
infected walls

these suffering, ignitable, alienating walls.
