behind a masked face

smooth poem

smooth lies lie behind the masked face

sweet words to cover up a grave mistake

injected for so long

those roots started to stink

can’t last long

like peyote, they have lost their first freshness

fumbled with weird voodoo sounds

went west instead of south

nothing could grow from this

only rejection, repugnance, ruthlessness

obnoxious taste transferred to perfume

from a brutally raped virgin

will not dissolve in alkali

all fetters must bind me

to finally be able to release

smooth, blissful secretion

knowing no lies and hypocrisy

abhorring their wretched nature

About the Creator

Mescaline Brisset

if it doesn't come bursting out of you

in spite of everything,

don't do it.

unless it comes unasked out of your

heart and your mind and your mouth

and your gut,

don't do it.
