Semisweet Putridness

Jesus mixed with a little
Woodie Guthrie
old and
in the way

flies fucking on the wall
watch as the spectacle
unfolds
naked bones and barefoot
blues

sometimes
the stench of rot
can be addictive

you kinda miss
the semisweet putridness

until you smell it
again
and remember the way
it lingers
