Nil- Mitch Green

Blame the damp easing lost in and out of color.
Pledge it a danger to all and castrate the panting cure
that swells all out of gusto; dead waxen grit.

Taboo are the lianas molesting the edible and transfigured
binary pulpy necrophiliacs riling creed.

Their decay is that which we overdose on.
It is like clutching your breath in frigid water,
decades deep, pronouncing gestures in silent to the unheard.

It is the portrayal of humid southern color and the half
empty animals crossing soil and sun only to become living
landmarks in roadkill country.

The sweating thermostats hang on wooden triangles of glass
in a square foot isle of the shaved and shared.

These avenues of dirt road romance feigns
roving women; sanctuary of nil.

Lay undone, unwed and undressed on
stinging rocks to become prey.
A carnivorous obstruction to mollify.

This is the humid color of summer.
The fox red wife in obscurity chanting invisible.

Be nothing if not marble – quoting the diamonds
that distress the uncanny wire sneaking round her.

Once more this avenue squeals without a name.

Excerpt from Anthology Volume I: Writings from the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective: Mother’s Blood/Introducing Mitch Green

Forever sorry, cut at the
bleach ghost in strokes.
Prove her out to be the
head over heels, smoke
em if you got em type.

Worming mists of steel,
sacrificial, superficial.

They warned you about
this one. They warned you,
stubborn listener.

They’ll fish you
out in pieces.

Tell me it to be fiction,
cause on the third floor
a girl fits a cage, made
of roses, thorns, and her
mother’s blood.

Anthology Volume I: Writings from the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective is available at Amazon.com, Amazon Europe, Amazon Canada, Book Depository, and other major book retailers.

Manmade Sapiens – Mitch Green

Grunge webbed ceilings
lunged lowly atop the impure
pagan elegance of lifestyle.
A tinfoil taped kitchen window
peered only in gold. Unfurled
garbage trashed the strewn
linoleum. Ruptured pipes
bled from the wooden walls.
A plate of cigarette ashes
censored the blushed areola
of paper girls, crinkled, rolled
and torn.

Stuffed sofas stabbed
open, suede skin of auburn.
Rubber bodies bed down like
damaged floorboards. Corvette
red gums crimped dabs of blood
to perspire. Travel bags packed
for home long ago robbed.

Water flogged denim and linen
wedged to spill over the skeletal
beds rid of sapiens. This
abandoned tabloid of an urban
omen made men mad by the odor,
who crowded ruined suits with
their fat wrists and bulbous bones.

Goddamn the white noise
in cold blood. It found us out.
The shortcoming of a man,
made manmade, running loud
and out of shape into the arms
of hell.
