Afluidity



plasma spatter pattern
blouse is
all the rage
but if blood
clashes with your
eyes we have a
variety of other
bodily fluids to
choose from

cariño por
sangre querida

streetlamps pose
as moons to
moonless
angels to
misguided
guides to feral
traveler

popsicle sticks down
gutters manhole
cover wishing
well housing
development

cariño scribbles on
edges of la vida
meat pie sketchy

sesos con
embalming y color
artificial
demografico
but if embalming
fluid clashes with
your tits we have a
variety of other
fluids from which to
choose

franklessly my
dear i don't build a
dam let it
flood let the popsicle
stick transient barbecue
wharf rats marinated in
gulf stream sewers
and artificial
intelligence

free boiled weiners at
grand opening autoerotic
parts store
fuel injected discount
tranny a la mode
martin luther
queen in a dream
speech

mommy why does that
man have lavender
skin hush johnny you're
embarrassing me
eat your orgasmsicle

labor day
weekend bodily
fluid clearance
event or is it
memorial day those three
day parties all look
the same to me seen
one bodily fluid
clearance ya seen
em all

at the fairgrounds there
is a sport-
hemhorraging contest
bruise tattoos and
art clotting
budding hemophiliacs
encouraged to enter

at the fairgrounds
is a bodily fluid
tasting for connoisseurs
and novices alike we
always welcome new
blood as well as
other fluids

intravenous drip
needles drink it
all down it's
good for
ya nasal swab
depressor for manic
tongue

always dress in
black etiquette
when being
liquidated
