do writhe and hue

do writhe and hue the absolute walls of thy slanderous landscape
burping turgidly a draft of flexing notation
and i cup thy lyrics in their burning varnish
)a sea scalloped with drunk wondering breath
         )inexorable limber teeth chomp gloriously the pale bit
of dapper sunlight
      peaking bravely
afore his bashful explosion
on                                                 the hard water
patiently housed by your ungilt frame

                               my crumb most luscious a fair fairy of murdered perfection
                         thou art all the excellence. herein contained this pathetic
welt of humanity. i am ever only

                             so far a star        in your onyx vestige

and more

                  and more

    Patrick, My take on this is that there are too many multi-syllabic words struggling to send a sad but true message of love and belittlment of self. Keep trying and keep writing. Don't take my criticism to heart. Tear it and me apart and take it as it was intended; a peaceful offering. All the Best, Will
