Gamma Shank

from by Hissing Tiles



You are a brick cannon
My abdomen a paper mitt
Soaked in the runoff of fermenting nerves
Utterly foreign to joie de vivre

I will have better luck
Decoding towers flashing out of sync
Bending their beams into translatable glyphs
Using them all to bridge widening rifts

There are restrictions/There are constraints
There are restraints/There are constrictions
Cleave them into perfect thirds
Gamma shank

A florid bloom bursts forth
After days of frantic stirring
Pitched forward into the loam
Manifesting in a monotone groan

A second set of limbs
Shake off lethargic weight
Succumbing as they slowly descend
Upon a portrait to rend
