Venom

V
Venom
What is this toxic venom?
That ghosts its way
Truculent in its discontent
The uncharmed kiss
Of hooded words
Venom’s bite of love
Words coiled as love
Crushing unsuspecting
Famished soul
Words spat out
Can not be re-cycled and
Converted into something else
Can the venom of mother’s milk
Be collected from
Capillaries of the soul
Impotent dreams
Of healing, inflame
Floundering illusions
