Two lovers Escape from Blood Castle, there is no Escape from Blood Castle, no Escape from Confinement or Control, or Eternity, Opium, Poison, or or or LUCKY IN AN UNLUCKY WAY.

Thrill to the Blah Blah Blah anything, look to the Stars and the Mud, try Disappearing, pray to be Rescued, or profoundly Forgotten, or or or GROVELLING FOR THE VERY SLIM CHANCE.

Crawl into Ruined old age, Confess petty Crimes in the garden, bolt for your Freedom while limping, or run with your broken Heart thumping, or or or SHARP POINTY STICKS IN YOUR EYES.

The mechanisms of Safety are Weaponised, every process designed to do Harm, no Secret corners to huddle, or failing to Cope, or extreme Naked yoga, or or or LAUGHING IN AN UNLUCKY WAY.

upside-down
kissing your fingers
plague bones
it hasn't been fun for ages
your face on swarm girl
kitchen sinking
red hand red hand grey sky
meets your ankles
we break your legs and carry you to the block
on a very ornate chair
a very ornate chair stuffed with saint's hair
and your fingernails
because you asked for it
because the crowd wants it
because it was decreed
in our walls
the ghost of scratching susan
told us
her lies are the greatest
this is what she says:
blah blah blah anything
my poor darling, anything.
