scarfucker

even with all the litter and the glamour
the enduring fad is an optical elusion
losing in plain sight the new wracks
the trend slitters all do it the same

it’s an interest in conflict
the thin red lines separate
the salves from the salve-nots

the amount of surveillance
makes all the difference

the lens filters blind the omniscient
the eye always adds a pound of flesh
I see you’ve done some work on yourself
you look absolutely lined

accessorize to your complexion
accentuate the star tissue
that duress is perfect on you

the glass pedestal is waiting
prepare to disbelieve the hype
you don’t need to exorcise to lose faith

the lens filters blind the omniscient
the eye always adds a pound of flesh
I see you’ve done some work on yourself
you look absolutely lined

the trend slitters all do it the same


I think the main impasse with the style of The Ouroboros Tweak has always been that it is way too easy to slip into being in-your-face or on-the-nose enough to physically hurt the reader, I mean, goddamn.  On the other hand, the main subject of this was always something that I liked writing about, mainly because “I” was such a scarfucker myself and have known a few scarfuckers in my time.
