Killer Words


image

The killers are out, hiding

behind someone’s flashy smile, making devilish grine

 

Formulating vowels and consonants,

stuck between grinding teeth of ex- lovers or bitter old girlfriends

 

Who overthrew heaven’s and earth’s kingdoms of love

fortified by years or lifetimes of loyalty and trust

 

Killing unborn love-childs who’ve crossed 

burning bridges on their way to lust

 

Killing timelines in shape of umbilical cords and

burning down would be family trees

 

Them girls be sucking the juice out of killers,

stuck like glue in between their teeth

 

Fanning down their tempers

with a fresh acrylic breeze

 

Rolling back burnt images in their heads,

with a final “nigga please”
