Your Hands Around My Throat (Abalone Minotaur)

Into the maw
of codependency
falling helplessly in after me
the hinterland is gray
shifting softly around us
in the gizzard of our longing
take a scissor to this lust

The minotaur sniffs and kicks
Hot sand into my eyes
The prick of a pin
Takes him by surprise
His shell is abalone
His hooves are brass and bronze
His lust it leaves me lonely
He wraps my corpse in gauze

out of pink and into pearl
i start to see your tail uncurl
opalescent foam and ink
a hole in us we start to sink

I feel your grip
it makes me hard
all my dreams are coming true
around my throat
your hands will slip
my complexion all gone blue

Maze of love
Will it ever be over?
Drug down in delta
Passion in clover

confusing hunger for nourishment
confused addiction with love

lead to swamps like antelope
alligator eyes will well
abandon jetsam from the boat
to work so hard to fuck your throat
