White comb on the monster
white tablet on the lower spine
of the master curled
in loops of furious hair

Orange glow on the tip of the pen
lucky pimple makes the star gift
a low punch and grill pomade
clanky and forested with deer

Red rubber at the piston's point
of pumping oxygen into the revolver
shake and thump gills kiss
a measure of fear to boot

Blue function in the artery
blasted open deep roofs quake
this guest room is bare of news
littered the gift of paper is resolute

I love the clank of buttons
on a metal blanket my phone
is under water on a table
with some skin ash and salts

Another joyous lyrical kick in the face from Todd Colby!
