incubus

by eloisehendy

at four am i glow neon
hot pink cat on a hot steel capped
bed swathed in synthetics &
panting my hot pink tongue
against the tinny roof of my mouth
ha! my body is livid

i am screaming adverts
at nothing i am scrawling love
into the arms of the sky
come buy come buy come
i woke up wanting
to kiss

ha! i am a motel in the back end
of beyond seedy &
blowing time away in clumps
at four am i glow like a lolly
i pop like a lolly like corn like chewing
gum i am burst
a bubble on a syrup chin
a fairground ride spinning
with sticky fingers i am a prize

ha! i am soap suds &
you tell me
i smell like church
