You are

Source: aquasixio A post inspired by Dieu on the Grass‘s post with the same premise. You are the rice sieved through jelly, sweetened in a peculiar way You are the wool bleached by sunlight You are the soak of detergent in porcelain and lace You are the sky constantly stripped and re-attired You are the […]

atomic spockle and some faith

Source: mahi-mahi Do you believ in the frozen dew in the summer? Do you believe in the cat who howls on your clothesline? Do you believe in the orchid etched on the cornea of your eye? Do you believe in a dust so congested it is invisible? Do you believe in the soap that eats […]

Surrender your bones

Plummeting. Erased we fall. Surrender your bones Your sickly all. Misshapen core To threaded light Acidic gaze Beaming, scratching Tunnels through your Grotesque, twisted pores Toxicated spores. Mutilated sponge. You find yourself on A cotton crystal shore.     -By Jelly Pom

The waking is a dream Fabricated by hands Keen to see all and Nothing. And fly beyond the edges of our brittle skulls We twist ribbons […]
