DESCRIPTION

The Moment Pleasantly Frightful

A sharp indecent stir
had cement, for suddenly
body, in the glad flesh of fear,
framed in twilight

the picture hurry it
slowly to my mouth, a brain
no mere accident of
perfect hunger

peered, a grim epitome,
a clumsy brightness of air,
the world smell,
of three dimensional distress

slowly rushing through loam,
on whose deep
nakedness
the skillful mystery

death most, a perfume
disinterestedly obscene, anointed
the immense quiver
of superb

and stretched into neat necks,
of exactly perishing.

–Chris Sharp
