MONO X 'Six Ways We Fucked in Metaphor' by Deviant Bates
Two pubic bones walk into a bar
and almost click together
is a drunk leaning.
I crack a smile;
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.
