lost in the mud
drifting the gnarled hairy forest
of grotesque fleeting glimpses
dark corners sprouting pitted brown teeth
in fractured time
as small furry whatevers multiply in the pungent pits
where sweat soaked pulsing veins
beat frantic rhythm
to the hiss of another round of stale blood
returning to the pumping muscle

strobe lit sinus putty
cakes the crack in the tile
where flakes of dead skin soak up the mist

the dimpled worm
probes the damp well where the filling used to be
as microscopic bubbles traverse the jittering pupil
in dreamlike motion

I sit and my toenails curl

lost in the mud
writhing serpentine follicles
encrust the acne pocked leather meat bubble
as aging molars grind to paste
dead material sustenance
in the skull bone house
of a brain distracted by something other than else

songs of hunger
bubbled and growled in primal tongues
vibrate the umbilical memorial pit
as elsewhere muscles and cartilage
twist into another headache

shaved brains wince
in the stark fluorescent light
at the dayglo mind pollution
of deafening nothingness

enchanting rectangular soul vacuums
parasite the aimless majority

as I sit and my toenails curl

thank you

Oscar the Band Melbourne, Australia

Oscar the Band craft pseudo-jazz, junk funk and anti-pop with a keen sense of the inappropriate. Started in late 2000 as a 2 piece featuring guitar and trumpet, we got our name with the addition of a drummer who, not owning a kit, played rubbish bins.
