lobotomy/

you cannot conceive
these dead eyes knives
fey-glint hunger
gift is german for poison
these gifted eyes
stab frenzy in fickled flesh
speckled threshold skies
lies
malice
& broken, limp wrists
begging for the mercy
of pins and needles
shafted in the head
like holes
so spirits may
give way
to 
peace
