Flies and Spiders

threaded fingertips attach to souls
eating wings bent by a crowing
consciousness in empty bowls
excusing pain for a world knowing

prey dribbles down cheeks
rules of nature feed without honor
innocent fuel injected into freaks
defined by a dark smile of conquer

memories disobey fantasies
Christ figures freeing the will to kill
bearing bouquets to drab families
tied with bloody strings for the ill

third eyes plucked for a strange beginning
birthing tyrannical and villainous beliefs
Big Brother always in the winning
preaching censored versions of real thieves

codes now trapped in mirrors of weakness
wanderers creeping behind dire doors
melody sounds and timbre bleakness
arranging new constellations in stores

suspend the iron cauldrons watching
past times upon and past times ago
loud failure claiming perfect timing

as darkness dances we needn’t grow
