deranged organs
conspiring their exodus
clamoring for the cool negligence
of concrete;

lost tongues in long weeping throats
valveless
glut of heartmatter
alabaster, pollen, necrotic silk

i'll empty their blasphemies
from broken tusks

spilling the elocution of bliss
so it does not reach the dead.
sad organs.
