Donna Krause Twisted Sister Feminist Twisted Sister Poetry

POEM — Uncaged

Hairy sleaze

Ranting

A

Cat’s dead claw

 

Your blank white

Face

Insanity lurking

In a circus

Clown

 

 

I’m hanging onto

Frayed rope

Sliding

Down my blackened

Teeth

 

You sank to the

Devil’s workshop

Hate for

You

Brewing in my

Shredded my heart

 

 

Too good for your

Wretched remarks

 

Going there my

God,

Baby, not once

More!

 

My chin sinking

Twirling seaweed

My

Tangled mind

 

Stained tear drops

Explosion

Down earned wrinkles

Cracked

Withering skin

 

Frozen sweat I’m

Shivering

Swimming in this

Dated Interlude

 

Your fiendish

Drool

Crawling down your

Aged skin

 

Where do I place

This

Sadness?

 

Remembering your

Hot breath

On my naked skin

 

I’m lying alone

Upon this

Bed

Chilling with this

Bed

Of rotten shrimp

Cocktail

 

It’s easier than

This

Wild stage coach

Ride with you

My love
