angst cycle (iii) — [k] (iii)

you know he sold his
black eye shadow for a night
playing with the cure

goth’s so ancient that
grannies now remember days
dancing to the damned

king kong was really
a monster of the goth he’s
climbing into myth

but most of all the
towers dominating all
royannant redoubt

gothic’s really goth
a dead history’s still dead
gothic’s never goth

i don’t care that bosch
is from another time his
sight was truly goth

personally i
think writing haiku at all
counts as sadism

railing overwrought
archaic artificial
drunk on the whisky
