Tube Steak Inspired by a YouTube writing exercise

Bone
        brittle like skittles
        fun to gnaw on
        the candy shell encompassing what poets’ long to taste

Rags
        tattered
        soaking up despair
        when worn as clothing enhances a person’s real beauty

Tongue
        holding it can help you succeed
        holding it with two hands has the opposite effect

Green blades
        sharp enough to cut the wind
        soft enough to sleep on

Cigarettes
        give you an orgasm
        strong enough to kill you

A naked light bulb
        shines brighter than a clothed one
        for it isn’t shy

Road kill
        died trying

Home
        a place I have never truly been
        if I ever got there I would probably leave
