lush theory & hypersmell

lush theory

i’ve kept my matrix clean for you
and this unwrap       goodbyes
swelling hallelujah
with oyster tongue soft
all blush and in full synthetic
easing its way back
into your shape


i feel far away from you in plenty
wanting to be merriweather in
your      spice cabinet

a milkman at your gap
during witching hours

a virus       growing in morsels
                                     on your chin
