Horror Theory #11

By Darren C. Demaree

horror theory #11

i don’t mind caricature
if it bleeds a little bit
into an immaculate bowl

popular as those are
as the lightened coffee
is drank near full windows

of the artist that holds
so many degrees that
they can tell exactly

what i’m trying to do
is make them shameful
those comfortable

assholes miss the point
i like a dash of cream
as well the dance of it

i have a skull i’ve seen open
& a happy life with 
a wardrobe that can hide

all of my scars i just
want them to come out
& play with the rest of us
