MONO X 'Six Ways We Fucked in Metaphor' by Deviant Bates


Two pubic bones walk into a bar

and almost click together

proving transparency

is a drunk leaning.


I crack a smile;

his too.


Deviants come easy as

seduction to Milkboy Arthouse.

Brightside is just one rum coke

spilled secret from confessing.



holds his guitar like a lover.

Eventually I touch him

knowing I’m no muse.


Beer and shots make me revealing.

Trust is a wet dream and I nail him

when I twist his arm like that.

I’d twist tongues even more effectively.


Spines snap on sight and mend through

walking it off and other aphrodisiacs.

All Rights. Deviant Bates.
