The Bland Simplicity of Rust,

Bone Asylum

Fossilized roller-coaster tracks fire tithes petrochemical planchette pitched in disused service tunnels nose-less planes rupturing rupturing perimeter cafe hope clambering up over chain link interference salt candles burn darkly indigenous chants chancing ghosts solve et coagula cell colonization sun-bleached cities underground sub-prime persecution complex post-disaster scenes idle in developed western real time thinking about breathing not breathing out loud bone bleeding viscera two natives refugeed and kissing stirring trembling deep inside bone asylum.
