Violence

Talk to me -
Of a mercurial heart melancholy and much maligned
Ribcage muscled and intricately designed
With filigree fibres intricately connecting
Where searching blades would go dissecting

Talk to me -
In mechanised hums and angular tunes that echo numb
Through anvil hammer cochlea and drum
Pigment paint and carefully coloured dye
Wormhole maze the apple of your eye

Talk to me -
In tangle tongues tied up in cat-gut calligraphy
We will tightened tender ropes knotted to set you free
Pay the boatman pay the finder’s fee
Tell me what your long stares see
