i wanna watch you burn
i wanna see you bright and shiny and
i wanna be close enough to feel the heat but
far enough away to avoid getting tormented

scarification - a memory of a past pearl,
covered by ink - now faded
and overgrown with masculine follicles
sprouting where youth once was -
smooth and sun-tanned -
hard like life -
now relaxed and nostalgic
the eyes on the prize lowered -
shielded by dark black mirrored glass.

to spit like tobacco -
expelling the bad taste
while gnawing at the gristly bits
tongue between teeth flicking
