Heliotrope

beneath the residue of film
beneath the chemicals that the
picture split
the Ouija board had spelled its name
in tiki torches set aflame
taking rations from the ballot box
cursing like sweet tarts
increase the dosage count back from 10
and it was written down
touching earth in a capital flaunt
heat seeking gums bleeding
fingers snapping at the
catacomb stabbings
taking rations from the ballot box
cursing like sweet tarts
adhesive she said don't stick to me
inseminating motives of lukewarm
persistence
let the thieves in through
the front door
let them take what they've been missing
its as if someone raised the price
of dying to maximum vend again
turn slowly for maximum vend
