Entry 44

My sex drive crashed, man.

The wheel slipped
And I met a red light; 
After a hard break.

Silver ‘round black,
Dripping ruby dust
On scattered diamonds.

Beauty was born from 
The death-swept slate sculpture of 
My final thrust,
Into the sepulcher.

Without carnal idolatry
I encountered other objects of obsession:

Art replaced my fascination with fornication.

Love has currency 
But I need cold cab fare
Before another lovely 
Taximan whore kicks me from the vehicle.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
