Euthic Euphemism


Scrape my bed sheets,

split this battery flesh in two–

is euphemism for

‘rape me like stone.’

 

Stretch this plastic

over shrunken heads

thickened once with shampoo–

the lightest way of exclaiming

to ‘suffocate.’

 

Bathe me, Miss Bathory,

entertain the bubbles

and skeletal Rubber Ducky–

is fanciful speaking

for ‘drown me.’

 

Slurp me straightforward

is concave jealousy,

words of crying

to ‘eat me.’

 

Tire the already sick,

the blind snuff projects

on your hit list–

with euthic euphemism,

only fools fall for this.
