slithering sediment

entry picture

bottomoceanbound transmissions
untamed aggression turns the water black
the patient
commits suicide in the operating theatre
his last action: resisting the anasthetic

the guitar strings break
disrupting the outoftune melodies
the orchestra falls silent amongst the stars
piercing themselves with their instruments;
the musicians lips are sown together

               | nothing
               |        exists
               |              nothing
               |                     essential
               |              nothing
               |        exists
               | nothing
               |
               every
               section
               the
               same
               every
               choice
               every
               dream

saluting the flagship of superfluity
we fall back into our blankets
smothering ourselves with the yesterdays sediment
we stack our spare change
amongst smashed shards of our moneyboxes
