from flat heavy lead: colorful cancers emerge
the make-believe faces, haunting
what it is they wish, taunting
their enticing match
made in heaven

to light this fire
beautiful alone, and among the cold
a horrific mosaic within the flames, crawling
inconspicuous sources of pain:
the cure to the curious heart

are simple routes tentatively tumbled
online with your old friend A-O-helL
when you've got mail
you'd now like to dodge
you've tapped the trapped world within
