grow up

faithful + libidinal misbehavior is alien one above is inside me spitting it out is nauseating a withdrawal from swallowing from something I once did I once I said, I never did at all, I never did at kneel only for aim do not enrich yourself, keep cathexis in the cathedral crucifix your eyes on don’t be cross don’t obsess but be obsessive it plays inside me wrong it’s wrong repress rep re you’ll grow but not up, never up or downtown you’ll be found and be wrung and the latter is always Eros making you fall into a trap so you’ll reach that rung late to exist is to choose, make your choice choose don’t lose your faith but bottle up libido, bottle up til you are old enough to drink it, til you are old enough to exist, cough it out now cough
