1/ A tainted window frame famed for its upsetting sense of masochistic anonymity . Its highly irregular and mightily unashamed sense of conflicting bliss – stain-glass windows filled with pictures of intoxicated and terrifically twisted people
Those far-and-few too many people who will viciously bring with them their undeniably moody minds some times
To press p-l-a-y they are fondly forced to act with an unashamed sense of sadistic (and visionary) p-r-e-t-e-n-s-e
Til both of them – a pair of mischievous make-believer and biblical wannabe caught in the firing line/s – get brought distastefully back to life .
Continually and contrary-to-popular-belief ’til put upon a jagged knife-edge.
2/ And left to maniacally S-C-R-E-A-M-I-N-G ’til their Mother Mary eyes softly collide and cause a rushing river of crimson to surge…
For the (emotional) colors of rich-deep-red inclining toward purple to controversially emerge ..
3/ And for their prophetic bodies to (begin) to s-w-i-m vividly with-in
This church temple called an “arrested and detested rush of blood to the head!”
4/ As wormwood creeps deep inside the veins of the pews that they use, as we all get to remain vacantly absent (yet) again
Albeit poisoned by mere proximity .. we shudder to t-h-i-n-k….
As an old and dilapidated lady sinks
knotted knees – it sips from a (strange) toxic tonic called imaginative hope and understanding.. only, it appears to be, she’s been utterly overdosed !
*wormwood – a woody shrub with a bitter aromatic taste, used as an ingredient of vermouth and absinthe and in medicine.
