from the delicate of my hand
 
a hint of spent
channel #5
  wafts   through my demon~esq skin,
Pradas on my feet
                              head     d e t a c h e d
   a scandal on a carpet
blood drenches a chalk outline
of her pretty head; sirens wail ~
distant:
 
'they're coming for you, Barbara'
 
Kevorkian appendages heave you thru
& from and 2 Hell ~ paradise found;
i'll be there in ten to life
 
just let me finish my cigarette.

    This reminds me of the book "the things they carried" it's a war novel but instead of focusing on the battle the writing focused on what they choose to carry around with them. Which told you alot about a person considering they couldn't carry much during war time. I really enjoyed this and I think sometimes just describing the little things and seemingly insignificant tidbits sets the mood of the story much better than a long drawn out description.

    I read this a few hours ago and held off commenting because I couldn't think of anything to say. I still can't think of anything to say, other than this made my halloween night.
