Cancerous Caryatid Cornucopia

by George Korein and the Spleen



Every agonizing orgy of ornament,
every floral fractal peeling back lips and letting loose
the hoarse scream of the horse in hot want of rut,
petals of flesh straining unto tearing,
every split seam exhibitionistically gushing forth its searing synovia,
the hair pulled ever tauter,
torturous braids of impossibly byzantine convolution
by hungry hands reeling in fistfuls from both directions,
the perfect bones budding through the skin,
blooming into full tessellation, beckoning...

Old art of old stone old worms old dirt and
dry throat dry heaves crying eyes bleeding.
