Twisted days from "Scylla and Charybdis"

Creeping crawling starving
Scylla is fast and silent

you see the shining sun
eat cheese and lemon cake
you close your eyes and heart
you feed Scylla’s fangs

you honey and vertigo filled
you get home and think
the monster only happens
to everybody else

eat bread eat lies at night
sorrow until tomorrow
keep sugar honey sweets
behind your twisted days

Whirling twisting shining
Charybdis is charm and whimsy

you see the scary wound
drink urine and sweet sweat
you open arms and legs
you hold onto Charybdis

bile and saccharine soaked
you dream and come to wish
that that peach can only be
yourself without a doubt

strip and drink and dance
eat flesh eat bones at dawn
keep sugar honey sweets

behind your twisted days.
This poem belongs to the series of poems published as "Scylla and Charybdis". The book can be bought here and the preface of it can be read here.
