ive got a large collection
of circumstantial evidence
that makes me want to destroy the world

i draft the text, explicit
i leave so many ideas blackened out
and keep the secrets for myself

i fill the words with fire!
i feel the sickness growing strong
like a pocket of bile / its adding mass from inside

ive got a large collection
of varying sentimental gestures
or was it just filthy lies

i let my mind go running
i spit a deep sharp sermon, bastard sighs
in wreckless cries, in underrated sties
ill waste all of my time
collecting all the crimes
and mix them up with mine!
a sort of putrid brine
let it fester
let it suppurate and turn sour
let it bubble over and blister out
its never met with relief, a throbbing bulb to admire
along the outer edges
i can see an infection propagating
to a critical mass inside


from The Bastard, released June 10, 2014
