oh build your ship of death

After Slumber Xvii

EXCITED DELIRIUM in stress position,
the torn spleen venting humours. Tunnel down
through etymology towards concealment -
WRAGG IS IN CUSTODY the watchword, sotto voce
inflection of our anarchy. Self-harm
always an option: for conditions, see below.
Most things an improvement on Villa Grimaldi
or any such house of demons; it’s a short
circuit, though, from taser to parilla.
Compliance at least cost their prerogative,
their fatal competence, to mute complaint
or drown it in the noise of your own flesh:
phrase-making breaks against this, even as
AN EVIL CRADLING is owed to Keenan.
