Too clean.
Spoon, cold metal to swoon
And dive, thrive through domestication.
Tangles of daisies, all crowned;
Adorned, and birthed through
Stained venom.
 
Wood grains--
She sways, left, right and
Sprouts through stars.
Metallic and jealous,
The wicked lily spills,
Delicate and pungent and rotting.
 
Ringing o’s,
Washing in wave and rose gold,
Dripping and filling,
Smearing guilty wing and foot.
 
Porcelain smattered with steam
And tea leaf waltz:
All swallowed by cosmo and flesh,
Planet and cornea.
